Your Host



Rio, Brazil · Joined in November 2013

Passionate journalist since 37 years. Born in Amsterdam, I lived in different parts of the world. Ten years in Italy, Bosnia (yes during the war), and Mexico.
Since 15 years in the bohemian Rio de Janeiro neighborhood of Santa Teresa. Although I travel all over Latin America, this magical place is forever my home.
I just finished building this guest house at the top of my garden. A dream I had for years: to create a tasteful and cosy house, so other people can savour the place I love most in the world.
If you want I can be a source of tips for alternative places to visit and hang out, including favelas. Places I deeply love, and often frequent.
Ah yes: I have two (very sweet) dogs and a bunch of cats. (They don't come in your house. No worry.)
This year I will be at home a lot because of the World Cup, and a book I have to finish writing.
That's me, for now.
