About Me

Hi! I’m Callie and I’m from the UK. I'm an English teacher having taught in the Czech Republic, Italy, China and now Japan, where I work as a university professor near Tokyo! I have had some great experiences Couchsurfing and love to meet new people and share our cultures, travels and stories. 😊

I’m pretty active and sporty. I do aerial hoop as a hobby and love ice skating (although I’m not very good). I also ran a marathon last year! I’m very adventurous and love experiencing new things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting new people and my dream is to travel the world. I would love to have friends all around the world and learn from them. 😊


Travelling, Music, Reading, Swimming, Ice Skating, Rock Climbing, Video Games, Languages, Painting, Dancing, Aerial Hoop

Music, Movies, and Books

I like all kinds of music, however I’m a big Coldplay fan! I like most films and I try to read as much as I can.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went skydiving on New Year’s Day in Australia. Great way to start the year!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can help you practise your English if you would like, I also love learning new languages so it’d be great to learn some new phrases!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Being British, I can make you a great cup of tea. I even have my own tea bags! I’m an English teacher so I can help you practise your English. I also speak French and German pretty well. I like to talk about a variety of topics, such as travelling, video games, ice skating. Of course, I love talking about and sharing British culture, such as the Royal Family, Harry Potter and even Brexit (more of a rant than a chat there though 😂). I really like listening to other's stories and learning about their cultures. 😊
