ABOUT ME

I am Wouter, living in Arnhem, the Netherlands. I studied Forestry and partime energy engineering, i like the outdoors, camping, exploring places & cities and being part of the culture. I am interested in experiencing adventures and to make the best out of my time. I lived and studied for some period in Brno, Czech Republic, and traveled a lot in Central and Eastern Europe. It's such a great place to be and the people are truly hospitable with their limited resources. I am open-minded, considerate, modest, helpful and friendly. I can be quiet and shy at first sight. I am helpful as best as I can but usually my advices are restricted to my experiences only. I like to treat people with respect, every opinion is one at his own. I don't like stereotyping. I usually can not refuse things and want make everyone feel comfortable. Sometimes I wish to be in more places at the same time so i can fulfill my all promises!!!! Since i have an apartment of my own i would be happy to welcome you if i'm around! Lets meet up!

PHILOSOPHY

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I once met an Australian guy at carnival. He supposed to be travelling from Amsterdam to Berlin but got in the wrong train. He was lost and left the train in Arnhem. I went to a party and took him there and he stayed at my place. He told me about surfing from place to place. He mentioned a website, that I forgot. However, an article in a local newspaper mentioned this website. Found again! What I particularly like about this concept is not being a "tourist" while travelling but a "guest". It is a good way meeting people and making friends all over the globe!

One Amazing Thing I've Done
