fill my bucket of wow moments
My home base is Brussels.
When I'm not working in some foreign country, I love to spend time with my friends, go out on a stroll in the forest, go sport and enjoy life.
I love the idea of CS as it formalizes a life style I've been following for years! Get to know a country/city/region through a local person. No better way of doing so!
As so many people, I try to spend quite some attention to live healthy, balanced and care for our planet.
I love to indulge in all sorts of late night discussions. I love travelling around and seeing and experiencing as much as possible!
No question is too much, no conversation inappropriate!
Live life from day to day and make sure you enjoy every moment, without disadvantaging other people.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I want to expand my experiences by inviting and visiting different people in the world.
When I'm in Brussels, I can meet up and have a drink or show you around a bit. Emergency or recommendations might be available.
We can see what is possible
Have some experience in Melbourne, USA and Barcelona when first arriving there! Only positive experiences. It is the way to get to know a city and make travel plans change according to tips of others...
I've been hosting ever since I have my own place. Whether they are CS, friends or collegues from all over the world; my door is wide open!
