About Me


Found it!


I am a happy person most of the time! Enjoy making other people laugh with my stupid jokes! :) I am always smiling, even when I am sad. Enjoy experiencing new things. Love helping people. Enjoy eating a bit too much!!
My job is to save lives, perhaps due to that fact I realise how short life is, therefore I try to live each day as if it was my last.


Sometimes I wonder who I am in the bigger scheme of things. Possibly nothing at all.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


attend CS meetings- in Glasgow and once in Paris :DAlso attend local CS gatherings when I go to visit the city.I have attended many CS gatherings, parties, picnics, kitchen surfing events.will try and host people sometimes.


couch surfed in Paris X2 and Milano. Had an amazing time! Both my hosts in Paris and Milan brought me along to parties and introduced me to their friends.I have been to 3 kitchen surfing events now! It was sooo damn cool, it was wonderful cooking with so many people, and I ate too much! Ended up in a hot tub with a few couch surfers in Loch Lomond :D Also been to a couple of parties, dinners, movie nights :D Recently, went couchsurfing in Alicante, Pisa, Florence--had a crazy fantastic amazing time!!!! ve experienced the touristic and also underground life of Barcelona :) What a great way to know a city!!

I went back to Rome again! went to Albano Laziale this time, a little town outside of Rome, was cool to see a different place. Also got treated to coffee by a policeman in Rome :) Had a cool time in Madrid, met some Mexicans who paid for my dinner and next day invited me and my cs host to the Ritz for dinner :)
Also went back to Paris again, and got hosted by my wonderful cs guest from before in his family house, had such a great time!!

Recently went to Florence, Tuscany-Montevarchi, Padova, Venice in Italy and Budapest in Hungary
I went back to Budapest again to hang out with my CS host and we drove around to visit the other towns in Hungary and even drove across the border to Slovakia to have dinner, I thought it was pretty awesome!

Also I went to visit family and friends/attended wedding in- Adelaide and Melbourne Australia, Washington D.C and New York in USA. Attended a medical conference in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and went to Taipei in Taiwan. -- I kinda presume this doesn't count as CS experiences :P
Had an amazing time in all these places!!

I have too many crazy stories to tell from my travels..ask me about it if you see me :)

I am just completely addicted to CS and I just love people. I find each individual person and country absolutely fascinating. I love the new perspective of the city you visit by completely immersing in the local culture :)

I have met some of the most amazing people via cs who I still keep in touch with till today and I am thankful for it's existence, although I think it's getting a bit too commercialised now!


Food, books, music, movies, surfing the internet,the opera, picnic- I am obesessed with having picnic these days, love meeting new people and talking to them :) Coffee addict. Also addicted to sweet and sugary food as well ;)
I think vintage photography is beautiful! Museums, Art Galleries.
