About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Visiting the Buenos Aires and around

PHILOSOPHY

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 you and showing beautiful Amsterdam.

I host preferably people over 25 years old who are not here for the sex&drugs part of Amsterdam.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
Hosted a lot 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. :)

Interests

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 ;-)

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 medieval labyrinths, 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)
