Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Newbie to couchsurfing

Interests

I like doing things that (hopefully!) make a difference to others or the wider world...by 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 up...so I'd like to travel the French speaking countries and refresh my memory- starting with Paris!

Music, Movies & Books

Some writers I like/read recently... Virginia Woolf, Sylvia Plath, William Faulkner, Doris Lessing, Zadie Smith, JM Coetzee, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Chinua Achebe, Douglas Coupland, Milan Kundera, Rohinton Mistry, Naomi Klein, Paul Mason Film-wise I am a bit masochistic and like things that make me cry- hate scary ones. Music- folk, 60s girl groups, electronic, reggae/dub,
