About Me


I am Marcel, a 35 year old guy from Amsterdam, currently living in Medellin, Colombia. I worked in international business for 7 years but decided that it was time to do something that would better suit me: so I resigned, travelled through South America again for 6 months last year. Since March this year I'm living in Medellin to teach at a public high school. And it's great!
I'm a quiet but very social guy. I love meeting new people and having some decent and funny conversations over some beers or red wine.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am traveling alone, and love to meet and hang out with local people like you during my trip. Also, bet you can give me far better tips and tricks about your city than hotel staff :-)


Meeting new people, talking about crap, running, travelling, photography, snowboarding, cooking, long walks on the beach, short walks on the beach, intermediate walks on the beach and so on...
