Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Newbie to couchsurfing


I like doing things that (hopefully!) make a difference to others or the wider day I'm a nurse but I've studied Psychology and hope to come back to it soon...When not working I like reading, watching films, hanging out in nice pubs with friends and going out dancing. I learnt French at school and college but since have been a bit lazy about keeping it I'd like to travel the French speaking countries and refresh my memory- starting with Paris!
