About Me

I'm Reinout but my friends call me Ropy. If you need a place to stay let me know.

I don't mind copy paste requests.
You don't have to read my shitty profile either.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because of CS I:
Spent the craziest night of my life in the desert in Iran.
Lived on a super yacht for months in HK.
Acquired a whole new family in Nepal.
Went on a the biggest trip in my life in Egypt.
Became very fast at making beds.
Made friends all over the world.
