VERY IMPORTAND, PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE SENDING A REQUEST:
I am NOT living in Amsterdam, but in Hilversum.
It is a 20 minute Trainride (one way) and 5,80 EUR per person, per one way/so 11,60EUR per round trip. (possibly 1 EUR extra for the ticket itself) If you only want to see Amsterdam, I will not be the host you are looking for. When you like a more local village, this could be a great spot for you!
I have a big couch to sleep on which fit 2 people. If you are lucky I have a extra mattrass. I have 1 sleepingbag available for use also.
Sometimes you need to share the livingroom with other CS'ers.
*For the tall people between you (longer than 1.75cm), my roof has some parts which are not extremly high, so on some places you might bump your head ;-)*
If you dont mind these things, you are welcome to send me a request!! To proof that you read this above, please start your request with: I want to stay in Hilversum. :-)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I am a active CS'er since (15 jan 2012). I surfed quiet a lot during my travels. Now I'm back in Holland and the time has come to host!
I did not host that many people yet, but as I have been surfing I want to give others the same kind of experience as I had!
Also of course, when infected with he ''travel bug'' I will still go to different places and check for people in the local area to stay with and have an greater experience of the trips.
To start couchsurfing was a big experience, and till now i LOVE it! Its great to meet so many people in short time and everybody is helping out! Just really Amazing.
Its better than hostel or guesthouse or hotel or whatever, locals know best!!
Have been surfing around in China, Thailand, Indonesia ,Australia, New Zealand and USA.
Its great to do active things and and always looking for new adventures! Always like to meet a lot of people and enjoy the moments that as much as i can.
Anyway I am willing to try a lot of crazy things! (to do and to eat). So if you got anything special... let me try! haha
I did a Vipassana Mediation course from 6feb 13- 17 feb 2013 in Tasmania Autstralia, again May 6th until 17th 2015 in Swiss and in 2016 in Sweden.
This gave me a new interest in my life and different perspective.
I worked a lot abroad and even on a Cruiseship!
Music, Movies, and Books
With music I like regeaton and Pop the most, but sometimes its nice to hear Trance and Rock. So it means I like almost all kinds of music. My favorite singer is Sarah Connor, and dutch singers Nick & Simon.I love to watch movies, especially teenage movies. Sometimes adventure,comedy, horror and of course romantic movies.If there is something i prefer not to do is it to read books! Only cartoon books (Donald Duck) or some romans is okay to read. And to be honest these days I started reading a lot more psychology books, which are very very very interesting.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
To much! *Paragliding, *airballoon flight, *climbing *swimming with wild dolphins in open sea, * Skydive from a Helicopter, * getting in a cage with Tigers, *Snorkeling with Sharks,*surfing with dolphins on background,*Snowboarding in Australia, *feeding a giraffe, *getting a Phyton around my neck, *getting a Ta Moko (Maori tattoo) *Getting Scuba Dive Certificate *Saw Uluru in Australia * Bungeejump out of a cable car * Canyoning*walking the Great wall from China* Yellow Stone Park America ect. ect. ect.

* went illegally inside at Borobudur to see sunset (indonesia) before Opening hours (still unbelievabe I did that!) *Go to a Mexican Fiesta House party in Sydney, organised by CS'ers.
Im a lucky person, thanks to the jobs i had in foreign countries.But there is a lot more to discover the world!
And hopefully still a lot to do/see in the future!
Teach, Learn, Share
Teach about how lucky/spoiled we can be with what we got!
And share life experiences, and my personal view on different kind of topics
I love to learn about other ways of living. And I am enthusiastic to share my information about the things i saw in other countries and of course the habits of my own!
What I Can Share with Hosts
Great stories, helping with dishes and/or prepare some food!
