About Me

Student of Leiden University College The Hague, major in World Politics . Can't currently host, as I am now living with my parents - as I will be on an exchange to the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Therefore, I am looking for hosts on the Big Island from August 5th to August 11th, on Maui from August 11th to August 16 and from August 16 a few days onwards in Honolulu, as I still need student housing from August till December there. Any place on those islands would be great! I'll plan my trip around the place where I am welcome. If anyone has tips concerning housing in Honolulu, preferably nearby the university, with a (shared) kitchen and small, preferably furnished private bedroom under 1250 euros, message me!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Trying to find a place to stay in Hawaii on the islands of Maui, Big Island and Oahu, as I would love to be introduced to these beautiful islands by locals!

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: everything that's golden and old, from Bob Marley to Pink Floyd, Bee Gees to Beatles - and some classical music, country and pop too.
Books: all that I can find to read, preferably Dutch authors of literature as A.F.Th. van der Heijden and Harry Mulisch. Furthermore, I love books by Svetlana Alexiejevich, Donna Tart and Jostein Gaarder.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Probably just being outdoors as much as possible, reading a book or listening to the sounds of nature.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can cook great vegetarian dishes, I try to learn and speak some Mandarin Chinese (HSK 3 level), I am a good baker of cookies and cakes!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Laughing, having a good talk, cooking great dinners, singing, dancing - just having fun!
