About Me


Travelling through southern America, wanting to get to now different people and cultures


Hi! I am a twenty-two year old student from Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Everybody has heard of it, but that's not the way I spend my time there. I sport, hang out in parks, go to museums, drink with friends and go to school. I study medicine, in the future I want to work with docters without boarders, if it's possible. But if you want you can.


In life, you'll miss more than you'll experience. Try not to rush but enjoy the time you'll stay in a place and not worrying about 'what if'.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


currently I participate by surfing, when I return hanging out en hosting.


I am a beginner, now travelling with couchsurfers which are more experienced!


I am really a sporty guy, with football as the biggest interest. But that's not my only interest. I like going to (good) museums, watching films mostly arthouse, and learn about people. About there interests in culture, politics and way of thinking of life.
Friends are my most valuable things in life, so I spend as much as time I can with them, learning from them every single day.

Music, Movies, and Books

Forrest gump, best movie evermade. furthermore a lot of history based movies, comedies, no horror.
Al kinds of things with jazz, soul, disco and electronis music. Names don't give me anything, only the vibe is what counts.
Currently I read Joao Ubaldo Ribeiro, message from a lighthouse. But like to read history.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The moment I was on a roadtrip with friends through europe, and we all were quiet for a minute. Just thinking about how wonderful it is to spend time together and have no worries.
Nature struck me when I saw the cristo redentor on the corcovado mountain, the iguacu waterfalls, the landscape in holland, beautiful architecture in european capitals.
