About Me


Kicking ass at my new job


After some international dwellings I ended up back in Brussels.I have a bachelor in Arabic and Islamic Studies and a Masters in Middle Eastern Politics. After a year in Cairo, 2 years in London and then some, I have come back home to find a job.

I'm a simple girl and a bit of a dreamer, enjoying laughs with her friends, the occasional shopping spree and a good night out. I am open-minded, curious, fun-loving and try to help the people that are close to me in the best way I can. I love having people over, enjoy meeting new people and discovering new places! Travelling is my life!


Enjoy life the fullest! Don't live in the past, enjoy today and surprise the world!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


The first time I "surfed a couch" was with a friend - and passionate couchsurfer - travelling through Israel and West Bank.


Travelling, shopping, dancing, movies, reading, laughing, coffee, gossiping, basketball, other cultures, meeting new people, having fun!
