About Me

IMPORTANT: I used to be fully verified but since it will cost me 56 euro in the new system to do any kind of verification (not just payment, as it used to be) in addition to the new yearly charge I have decided to pass. I understand if you made a similar decision.

Just back from traveling in Brazil and elsewhere in South America. If you want to host, hang out or make music, let me know!! You can check out my music, work and blog about my adventures on my website: https://www.woutervandijkmuziek.nl/musictravelblogs/

I'm an easy-going guy, usually capable of adapting my schedule to accommodate chilling sessions with people I know or don't know! I am addicted to playing guitar, in a variety of styles. I make a living teaching guitar, playing gigs and making sheet music. Jamming with people always an option, I've got plenty of guitars/basses/keyboards lying around, also built a home studio last year. Oh and check out my new music as well if you care to: www.woutervandijkmuziek.nl, or my past travels at https://www.travellerspoint.com/map/#/user/1026356

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Overlanding from the Netherlands to Thailand (hitchhiking most of the way). Hitchhiking to Moscow, driving to Chechnya and Dagestan and following the Volga up from the Caspian basin to Kazan. Traveling from Utrecht to Ethiopia without flying. Did couple of months of hitchhiking, couchsurfing and playing guitar in Brazil last year.

Teach, Learn, Share

Capable of teaching English, Dutch, German, French, guitar, bass and music theory, and maybe some stuff I picked up along the way!
