About Me


Exploring the territory, not the map!


Dude from the Netherlands always in for gaining a valuable life experience. I work in IT, do sports, play the piano, go camping in the weekends if the weather is nice, and do my other hobbies. And I like the saying "a day without laughter, is a day wasted".

I love meeting new people with all kinds of backgrounds. Parcipating in several "youth exchanges" has given me the opportunity to meet many people with different nationalities. That has been awesome.

In 2016 I discovered bicycle touring, and I love it. It has become my favorite way of travelling: being outside all day, doing sports, camping, seeing the less traveled roads, and being closer to the people. Of course, travelling this way, I avoid the countries / areas that only offer busy, dangerous road.

The greatest risk is to risk nothing at all.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can be your guide in the city Rotterdam located in the Netherlands (South West). I can host people and I like to share my experiences, meet new people and hear their stories.


So far I got hosted by Mark in London, which was my first fantastic CS experience. I have hosted another guy, Eric from Beijing myself. Until now I only had positive experiences with CS.


I love music with almost all it's genres, but I have a distinct preference in every genre. To give some examples:

Electronic music: Bonobo, Aphex Twin, Trentemoller, James Holden
Rock: Queen, Red hot chili peppers, Muse, MGMT
Classical: Vivaldi, Bach
Chill (is this a genre? :P): Jack Johnson, Zero 7

Sporting is another keen interest of mine. Football, Running, Climbing, Excercising; it feels good!

My intellectual interest are very broad, that's probably the reason why I've switched some studies. Other interests range from history to natural sciences.
