About me

Hi,

I'm adventurous, happy and cheerful when I'm not depressed and since I am only up and about when I'm not you'll very probably only see that happy side of me :-)

My chronic illness (shit happens) has kept me from starting university but that hasn't kept me from being a scientist. I pay a lot of attention to things and have a very good memory so I learn fast, and I love learning more and new things.
This makes hospitality exchange a very good fit for me, because you get to know other people from different cultures and with different languages and interests and jobs. I love learning things in the local way and very definitely dislike being a tourist.
I can be a tourist just as well in my own hometown.

My home is wherever me and my backpack are and you can often find me pulling very unexpected and useful things from it.
I'm an artist, I draw (mainly fantasy aka dragons), sculpt, DIY (from repairing bicycles to building aquariums and closets), I try to be minimalist and make smart reuse of used products.

I want to be an awesome person and do my best to be so.

I'm made out of opposites, so while I have my light side I also have my dark side. That dark side is a bit of a rebel and unconventional, guess I'm punk without dressing so. I do like rock/metal (without grunting, for me vocals should be vocals), I love being tough but unfortunately my body has it's strict boundaries. To me the paranormal is normal and though my age is young I'm an expert at this.
Questions are welcome.

All questions are welcome with me, I've seen and heard a WHOLE LOT and I would be very surprised if anyone manages to surprise me now. But I have two rules; if you ask a question be sure that you are prepared to accept the answer whatever it may be and second; respect the answer as my answer and view on things. There are too less people playing by those rules so I'm putting them here.

I am a dragon, so expect a strong and flaming personality, curly red hair and a (it can be literally) fiery breath (and temper when it comes to pushy guys).

Hope I haven't scared you off! ;-)

My interests

Hobbies:

I love Jugger, breathing fire, drawing, scuba diving, sailing, horseback riding, reading, skating, gaming, walking, hiking, listening to music or making it (though I can't really play any, but I'd like to learn), travelling, hitch-hiking. I am into paranormal and occult things, energy manipulation, healing, being empathetic, "seeing" ghosts and energy and auras and stuff and being free to go wherever I want.

So, I can just say that I like EVERYTHING, as long as I can participate (otherwise it'll only make me jealous ;) )

Books:

Earth's Children, The Banned and the Banished series(!), Inheritance series (Eragon), Pit Dragon series, The Vampire Diaries, Sookie Stackhouse books (True Blood), Twilight saga, The Hunger Games, Green rider, Mistborn trilogy and many more.

Music:

Basically different sub-genres of rock, metal, dance, some dubstep and pop, nightcore and epic music.... though it really depends on my mood.

Films:

Avatar, Dragonheart, Lord of the Rings, Constantine, Ironman, X-men series, Transformers, Push, Jumper, The Land Before Time (the first movie, the animated drawings are awesome). I really enjoy watching anime, anime is brilliant and underestimated.

Organisations I belong to:

Volunteers of the Redheaddays.

Travel experiences

Past trips:

Hitchhiked to Paris with a good friend for a midweekend.
Been to Berlin for a month and had the time of my life there, including sleeping in random squads and making friends, some of which I still have today.
Been to Curacao for a month and lived like a local there.
Redheaddays in various years.
Jugger tournaments and various small trips.

Planned trips:

My boyfriend is free from about the 6th to the 20th of July and we planned to travel through Belgium and Luxembourg and perhaps Germany, attend a few summer camps if I can find them and probably go to England too. I'd licentious go by hitchhiking and ridesharing as much as possible, so if you go somewhere please let us know.

Accommodation

never ask
Max number of guests:
1
I Live With:

My mom.

I can offer my guests:
A dinner.

And a warm welcome to the country and a tour of Utrecht of you like. Unfortunately not a couch because I live with my mother and it's already too cramped as it is. When I've arranged my own place I've got room enough again.

I can offer my hosts:

I do my best to be a pretty sober, tough, no-nonsense and cheerful person and I think I'm succeeding fairly well :). By no means does it make me grumpy or quet though, I'm just trying to be my best.

I love information, and I love giving information in any way they need to help the people around me. I've learned that to improve the world you have to start with yourself and I'm sticking to that by helping the people around me and learning from them to help myself grow.
I can offer you good advice and tips on pretty much anything, I've actually never found myself without a word of advice and that says a lot considering all the things I've gotten in contact with.
But I only offer this if you want it, I don't force myself and my opinion on people just because I want to help.

Besides advice I can offer you enjoyable stories, a belly that can't handle grains, bread pasta or beer, an evening/ night person (I'm either quiet or making grumbling noises in the morning) and a good drinker without hangovers :). I'm considerate of people but don't let myself be walked over.
