getting ready for the summer
Hi there! I'm an outgoing, traveloving, social, Dutch man.
The Marley doctrine: 'Every little thing is gonna be alright'.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
While traveling I've encountered great hospitality. Now I return the favour by hosting and showing beautiful Amsterdam to other travelers.
I host preferably people over 25 years old who are not here for the sex&drugs part of Amsterdam.
Hosted in Amsterdam. Surfed in Vietnam in 2012 and Budapest, Hungary in 2013. Beautiful journeys, beautiful people!
Couchsurfing is not just a free place to sleep. It's intercultural exchange and having a great time together regardles borders. A brotherhood of mankind.
Playing guitar, getting to know strangers, having a social drink in the weekend, hanging out in the Vondelpark, guiding city tours in Amsterdam, going to (rock)concerts, checking out local bands, connecting dots, putting up political conversations with a good wine/beer ;-)
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: Memento, Amores Perros, Central do Brazil, Eternal Sunshine on a Spotless Mind, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, City of Ghosts, Indiana Jones, The Truman show.
Music: Fan of the old school Prince, a bit stuck in the '90's rockbands, currently into songwriters.
Books: Easy thrillers, Lonely Planets, Footprints, Roughguides :-).
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Showered under rainforest waterfalls, sleaped in desert nomad tents, had a real cold shower after a real cold night in the mountains, got terribly lost in labyrinths of medieval towns, had a SCUBA-dive encounter with a whitetip reefshark, blahdyblahdyblah ;)
Teach, Learn, Share
Every week I guide walking tours through the Amsterdam center giving the phenomenon 'off the beaten track' a new dimention.
I can teach you the basics on guitarplaying, from the edge of your couch.
What I Can Share with Hosts
A good time, a good couch (in fact it's a real bed. Sorry about this.
