About Me

Hi, my name is Yannick.
I am working as a technical planner within the city's urban green space development, which means I do a lot of organizing and improvement work. Sometimes I need to be a psychologist as well as I am one of the first contacts to the people working on site.

The main raison why I am traveling is besides exploring, also to get out of my comfort zone sometimes. My goal is to start entrepreneuring for a better world and (solo) traveling is a step in this. Entrepreneurship is all about taking choices, taking risks and just go for it. Traveling reminds me every time of the difficulties earth and her inhabitants have to face, but also of here magnificent beauty, possibilities and powerful energy.

Freedom is my best friend and I don't like to be dependent on something.

If I can help you, you can bet on it I will be there for you. I am very openminded and have faith everything is possible nowadays. Just believe in it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To explore the real world, not the touristic one. If I wanted to travel without efforts, I just book a hotel.
An extra advantage of CS is that it is cheap and an easy platform to explore.

Music, Movies, and Books

All kinds of music, except metal and hardrock.
I like good comedy movies, but they are scarce.
I don't like horror or thrillers

I don't have much time to read, but if I do, it are rarely romans but more informative books

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Being born and having family
Rafting, hiking above clouds, indoor skydive, racing on a race track, being in a small boat on huge waves, ...

Teach, Learn, Share

Let's start with a simple question: "what can I do for humanity and earth?"

DREAM BIG / TRAVEL FAR / LIFE FULL

If your work is not good enough as perfection, if it doesn't touch you or anyone else or if is has no sole value, then it is not good enough.
