About Me



Raising my beautiful daughter.


Consume less, travel more! The things I love: Hanna, Nature, arts, photography, learning to live life in different ways, exploring with an open mind, listening music, dancing, teaching for a living, cooking, organic food, meditation, climbing, Buddhism, camping and just enjoying the little things.


I believe in people and that we can make beautiful things happen together without law or regulations. I'm happy to be a part of a beautiful small community like this in Eindhoven and the biggest one in the world: CS!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Its been a while since I’ve hosted or surfed and in the meantime I have had the most amazing journey expecting and raising this beautiful little human being. My household has changed a lot and things are less flexible now, but we are open to meeting new kind souls.

Since I've been a member of CS I can say it made the world so much smaller and my own world a lot bigger! This network is like being part of the world's biggest family. A beautiful way to share and make the world a connected playground full of friends I haven't met yet.

Many new members are sending out requests not even having read profiles. This is not fair to the people who daily create this network by sharing their lives and being as hospitable as they can be. You just need a place to stay? You're only asking the people in this network to give to you without having anything to give in return? Please don't write me. My home is not a free hostel where you can crash for your early flight. It makes me very sad when I feel I hosted someone who showed no interest or appreciation for opening my own home and life to them. People having actually read this profile so far could include 'pvvsucks' in their message. Thanks :-) If you’re new this could be helpful: https://about.couchsurfing.com/about/values/

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Realizing that every day can be amazing even if nothing special happens.

Teach, Learn, Share

"The thought manifests as the word. The word manifests as the deed. The deed develops into habit. And the habit hardens into character. So watch the thought and its ways with care. And let it spring from love, born out of concern for all beings." Buddha

What I Can Share with Hosts

Sharing lives for a bit, learn from each other, create the understanding the world is a friendly place and we create it together.
