Since I have half a year 'nothing to do' this is a great opportunity to start my long-wanted backpacking adventure to Australia !
During my trip I want to meet a wide range of people, so I am open for anyone. I am easy going, relax, and social.
My current interest are sporting, like running, mountainbiking, playing soccer
Besides that I consider my self as a pro-active person, not afraid to take decisions, enthusiastic and cheerful
Keep smiling :)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
By testing it out on my trip, and hopefully recommend it to friends and participate more active after my trip.
None so far, but I heard some good stories about it from friends and I am looking forward to experience it myself
Biking (mountain and road)
Nice food ! =)

Music, Movies, and Books
Some of the best books I read are Dutch; but I also like books from non-dutch writers; Mario Puzo, Dan Brown, and one of the best books I read: the kite runner written by Khaled Hosseini.
One of the best movies I have seen are Momento and no county for old man. I generally like almost every movie, except the die-hard scifi stuff
The music I listen mostly varies, depending on the setting, I like elektro (kollektive turmstrasse, jamie woon) , rap (watch the throne ), indie (the xx) and ofcourse the good 80's and 90's songs for in the car
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Diving in Curacao
hiking in the Pyrenees, Yosemite park, grand canyon
Backpacking in Australia !
Teach, Learn, Share
A few weeks ago I finished my bachelor degree in Aerospace engineering. I have some knowledge of physics, mathematics and programming, some basic HTML, LaTex, basic Catia experience.
Besides that I have some basic knowledge in fixing mechanical things, and some plumber experience. I can help by setting up sporting schemes and give sport advice with respect to running cycling, and to some extend, fitness.
I don't mind to work hard if I can help someone out. I have had many different jobs, from blowkart instructor to working in a garden center. There my jobs ranged from catching chickens to selling Christmas trees and building gazebos ('garden houses') to rabbit hutches.
