About Me


To explore the world and meet unique and caring people :-)


I am a little bit shy at the beginning, when I first meet someone. I am a loving and caring person. I am very friendly and open-minded and love to meet new people :-)

I am passionate about traveling... I have been to 27 countries, from Australia to Singapore, from Costa Rica to Mexico... and Sri Lanka. I love having new experiences!

I am a vegan for ethical reasons... which means that, yes, non-humans animals are important to me, but so are people :-)

My friends and family say I am a pretty good cook, which is a complement for me, as most of them are not vegans.


There cannot be true justice until we include non-human animals.

I enjoy doing voluntary work helping children and non-human animals whenever I can. I have done so in the USA, UK, Sri Lanka and now here in Prague, Czech Republic, where I currently live.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am totally new to this :-)


I am a virgin, never done it before but I heard great and positive things about it, this is why I decided to give it a go :-)


I have many interests: meeting nice people, helping animals, baking vegan cupcakes, traveling, running, watching international news as well as documentaries and independent movies, and many more.

Orange is my favorite colour, flavour, aroma... anything orange makes me feel happy :-)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

So many great experiences... perhaps some of the most amazing ones have been seeing wild elephants in Sri Lanka, as well as seeing wild dolphins playing in the Pacific Ocean in Costa Rica... and seeing a wild koala for the first time in Australia... as you can see, my most memorable moments are always about nature.
