About Me

Hello there everyone! I am an ambitious world traveler even though my age. This amazing app makes it possible to travel without feeling lonely during my solo trips past 2 years. Meeting new people, crossing borders by bike and exploring beautiful new places is my style of travelling. Cycling, playing chess and watching sciencefiction movies are my biggest activities besides studying laboratory research (biology) in Groningen. There is a lot of possibilities within my studies to specialize in and virology and immunology are my biggest interest.

Since my urge to see and travel the world started, I planned big trips by bike. At first I was limited by summer holidays only (2020 and 2021) but for this trip (2022) I will skip one semester, travelling ~7 months including 4,5 months by bike and 2,5 months to Indonesia by plane. I will travel ~6000 km to Baku in Azerbaijan going by bike and public transport. It is the most amazing way of travelling since you are seeing most of a country, having some time alone and meeting people when you arrive. My spirit is to stay active, travel a lot and appreciate the place where you are going. Do you want to become my travel companion? Take that shot and meet me!

My traveling's goal this year is funding money for charity, mentioning an orphanage in Indonesia. The crowdfunding link is https://gofund.me/93cb24ee if you are interested (it's in dutch). I will post about my trips in more detail on Instagram (elang_poort). The text on my instagram are in English.

Anyway during my journey, my parents are able to accommodate couchsurfers. So it's definitely worth asking for a place to stay!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It's hard to just name one amazing thing I have done. Every experience is amazing especially travelling alone for the first time, not knowing what I am actually able to achieve by bike, travelling 2000 km within 34 days.

Last summer (2021) when I cycled 3300 km through Europe being amazed by every place I stayed with.
