About Me


My mission is to enjoy life ;). Just go with the flow. Meet new people and visit new countries&cities to explore my view of this world.


My life is quite steady going, but I'm always seeking for new experiences, so CS is a great way to meet others.
I'm a colourful girl, literally and figurally ;), and most of the time I dance trough my live. I laugh a lot (it's healty ;) ), but a also love to have really serious conversations.


I live my life because I'm alive. There's no reason why, I think. We only don't want our lives to be useless. I can think about what comes after this live, but I don't know what's all about. So, I decided to live NOW. To enjoy now and yes, make mistakes now. Because that's what live is about. Just go with the flow; feel experience, make mistakes and learn. And after that? Yes, we'll die, but you never know when, so start enjoying life now. Not 'later', 'in ten years' or something like that.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


In the Netherlands I don't use CS really much. I use it more when I'm in other countries. But I'd like to host people, so that's how I mostly participate now. Since I moved to The Hague (in stead of living real close to it) I noticed that people find me quite easily. I pretty busy , but I always try to help you. Last minutes work best for my now, so I already 'saved' some people ;)


I have had different kinds of experiences. And I just love the experiences where people are curious without (a lot of) prejudges. The people I've met and who embrace live just in a caring way. Those people I'll always remember.


people, minds, books, music, modern dance, being creative and creating, sailing (have my own boat) and musicals

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The most amazing thing I've done is spending my holidays in Russia being a volunteer. It was quite an experience which turned my world upsidedown. I followed my heart and the path I walked on was really incredible!

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to meet intelligent people to have interesting talks with. But I also like to meet crazy people to celebrate live with. In the end I just can say I just love people who love live and interacting with others. So, just share with me who you are and I'm sure I'll learn something about that ;)

What I can teach you? Well.. probably some tango ;). And I hope I just can 'teach' you the lessons you need. We all have lessons to learn and I think we learn them by meeting the right people.
