About Me

Hi, My name is Marike and Love to meet new people. I'm from Holland but grew up in Nepal. I'm now living and working in Sweden and planning to settle here...(but then you never know)
I love life here, have three children who make me really happy, and spending time out in the nature is just great.
Other interests are food, languages, music, singing, dancing, cultures, climbing and being creative with paper, pens and fabrics.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to make other people feel welcome, show them around and learn from others and their experiences. And I would love to show the things and places about Sweden that I love.
