About Me

I'm from South London but I've lived here and there, and at the moment I'm in the Middle East. I love languages and people and colourful rugs. My favourite colour is pink, I'm not a very good cook and I do a good chicken impression. I'm currently planning a trip in Eastern Europe and the Black Sea region.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've never surfed a couch before, but I feel like now is the time. I also hate the idea of having space that is not being used, particularly having almost been homeless for a few days when I moved to Paris. I'm fortunate to live in an interesting part of the world and I would like to share it with the travelling community!
