About Me


Traveling the world, open my eyes.


Hey people of the world! My name is Tom De Baere and in 2008 I "escaped" my home town in Belgium to go see the world. I arrived in Paris in July and with alot of luck found a place to stay and a job. You should ask me for the real story one day ;). I only started traveling outside Europe last year with a trip to the Philipinnes and planing on extending my reach this year. I love to get to know new people, open my mind and explore the wonders of the world. I'm currently helping a friend rent appartments so I have alot of free time to start on this mission!

I am very open minded and easy to adapt to new situations. I'm not afraid to explore new cultures and their people. Food, bring it on, as long as it's not to spicy hehe. I'm fun loving and always have a positive look on life. I love discussing all kinds of topics, especially if its nerdy stuff ;).

The world is a playground for me now, and I'm ready to take on new adventures and see everything before I grow old and full of regret :D.


I'm a futurist so anything that can make the future better!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Currently I'm only looking for people to surf with. I'm not yet a host myself though that can change in the future. For now, I want to meet new people and explore their world.


Even though I joined since 2008, I have not yet made any experience so far... Time to make that change this year!


Anything that can open my mind more. I'm more of a tech person so anything involving new technologies, science, ext. The world is at my feet at the moment, so when it comes to traveling, I'm a total newbie. But It sparks my brain to see what the world has to offer.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm not that much of a reader since I easily dream away and get lost between the lines :D.

I love watching TV series like:
- Breaking Bad
- Dexter
- Faulty Towers
- Flight of the Conchords
- Futurama
- Game of Thrones
- King of the Nerds
- My Name is Earl
- South Park
- The Big Bang Theory
- The It Crowd
- The Walking Dead

I'm a big movie fan, anything can make me watch it, even the romantic sobbing ones :D.

When it comes to music I'm more of the rocky type to sometimes some hard rock or metal. Though I have my periods of other types to. I'm not that big of a rap music fan though. But any music that can bring a good vibe does me good.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Well one experience that changed my life is to live with homeless people for a few days when I arrived in Paris. Ask me about my Paris story, it has changed my life!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach people my languages, Dutch, French and English. I love to share new cultures and my views on the world. I can show you around Paris for now, or be your travel buddy!
