About Me

CURRENT MISSION

After traveling alone in South-America with my baby-girl for a while and after waiting a year in the Netherlands we finally have our own place. Busy making it our own.

ABOUT ME

They used to call me a modern hippie and world citizen. Lately mostly 'mother'. :)

I am a full-time single mother and the biggest love of my life is my daughter. Dancing and freedom are also big loves of mine. But have lost track with them at the moment. Passion for traveling is still there.

When I still had time I was a dansaholic (NO drugs, cigarettes or alcohol for me, though a waterpipe a year is welcome :)), always passionate, vegan, love meeting people and seeing new places, unexpected (positive DUH!) encounters, walker, talker, both laughing and having deep conversations, extrovert (but at times introvert), doing things I never did before, hate lies, love openness, love freedom, would love more sleep ;), adventurer, ex-hitchhiker, traveler...
I used to be an conceptual- and performance artist, poet and loved going out. But now I give most of my time to my dearest.

MY SHORT TRAVEL STORY

The first of June 2012 I started traveling and was for a while officially homeless by choice. I left everything behind, had no bank account or insurance. Only needed one backpack as possession and did not need a home to feel at home. It is about the people... still is.
First seven months hitchhiked through Europe, worked at several places, different jobs. Then went 3 months to Brazil, then to my parents in The Netherlands to give birth to my beautiful daughter. When she was 5,5 months old I went with her back to South-America and after 16 months back to the Netherlands again. Since May 2015 back.

WHO/WHAT INSPIRES ME

My daughter, strong independent women and men who are open, honesty, friends, unexpected encounters, new events, people who dare to be different and be the first in things, music, good vegan food, animals and sometimes even myself.

PHILOSOPHY

- Live & let live!
- Borders are made out of hate.
- Against any form of discrimination. Am also anti speciesist, therefore vegan.
- "Be the change you want to see", - Mahatma Gandhi.
- 'Practice what you 'preach'.'
- Most beautiful language in the world, is the language of love!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I hosted 5 great surfers, also at my apartment in Peru, and since first of June 2012 I have been surfing. Seriously, made the best friends ever through CS! The experience is great!
CS is a great way to meet more open minded people, to share travel stories and to talk about other wordly things and if in the process of that all new friendships are made it is even more great.

PLEASE NOTE!:I do not meet with men that have a list of friends and references only from women.

Interests

Bucketlist
- To one day have my own camper, my house on wheels. To travel through Europe.
