About Me

I am a 22 year-old quasi latino. I was born in the UK but have also grown up and spent time living in Mexico, Uruguay and Canada. After graduating in politics from the University of Bath I worked as an English teacher in rural Quebec. I returned to the UK a few months ago and am back living with my parents and working with students who have special needs at a local high school whilst I save money to start my masters in Latin American Development at UCL in the autumn,

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I started CouchSurfing in 2010 and since then I have travelled around the world and CS has played a big part in that. I've also been able to host so many people and I think I actually enjoy that more than surfing. Every day of my life I try to 'travel', to look at the world from a different perspective and create new ideas.
I love to share my world with other people and learn about theirs.

Interests

Politics, Languages, Aviation, Geography, International Relations, Economics, Architecture, Infrastructure. I love maps! Walking/Trekking, Running, anything that involves being outdoors, Photography, Urban landscapes, contemporary art, history, sustainable living, good beer!!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Travelling all the way to the 'bottom' of the world in Chile.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know London like the back of my hand, I can teach you some Spanish or some French, and I can cook you some really good vegetarian food!

What I Can Share With Hosts

You would be staying in our family home which is on the very edge of London (WE LIVE IN ST ALBANS; PLEASE READ THE NOTE UNDER 'MY HOME' SECTION ABOUT OUR LOCATION. WE ARE RELATIVELY CLOSE TO CENTRAL LONDON BUT YOU HAVE TO BE PREPARED TO WALK/TAKE A BUS TO THE STATION AND TAKE THE TRAIN INTO CENTRAL EACH DAY).

I work Monday - Friday so during the week all I can offer you is your own bedroom, a hot shower, and a home-cooked meal in the evening.

On the weekends I love to hang out with my surfers and show them some of the lesser known parts of London, sometimes staying out til late and taking the last train home.

I like to spend time with my hosts and to get to know them. We understand that sometimes you have to send out several requests, particularly for a city as big as London, but please write a line in your request saying why you want to be hosted by me and my family in particular.
