About Me

Hey Surfers! I am from the UK and living in Bermuda! I have Bangladeshi heritage, which if you mix in with my multicultural upbringing being based in Urban London, educated in Maths with a load of nerds from around the world (and then there was me lol), working in the States, dancing to Techno, Afrobeats and Reggaeton and bagpacking across Asia and South America (soon to be Africa too - November 2023!), I am super diverse and open-minded.

I love travelling and new experiences - I am open to pretty much everything! I like trying all food cuisines and just generally love food, I love thrill-seeking activities like bungee jumping however I equally enjoy scenic walks/hikes to enjoy the beautiful world around us. I am also a sports enthusiast and love being able to keep fit and healthy or watch some of my favourite sports people!

PHILOSOPHY
Make the best of every situation. If nothing else, be kind and smile through anything and everything.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Would be great to meet new people whilst travelling solo and a friend who couchsurfs recommended that I look into it further as it has really enhanced their travels! Travelling is great when it can be shared with people and I guess this is a great way to make new friends! I have hosted and also been a host now and I can honestly say that I have met surfers and hosts alike from CS that are now some of my closest friends... in fact I am going to travel to South America with someone I met on CS whilst in New York!

I have recently found a passion for running so I try to fit in a morning run in all of my travels, it is such a great way to see some of the area and makes me feel great especially after a scrumptious and wholesome breakfast. I have ran 3 half marathons during my travels with 2 big actual events (Bermuda and Panama with another in New York but that was just for fun).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Completed a half marathon with 3 weeks of training in under 100 minutes! Have since done it 2 more times and managed to cut my time down to 1hr33!

Having a fear of heights but still cliff jumping in Vietnam and bungee jumping in Greece!

Honorable mention goes to presenting in front of 300 people!

Travelled solo to China and India (love solo travelling, see some of my last photos!)
