About Me


Pursue bliss through travel, hugs and adventures.


I try to ensure I'm living each day to the fullest.
I lived in a yoga ashram in the Bahamas. Apart from the obvious effects (a love for yoga) I have expanded my horizons in so many ways. Since then I have been travelling the Americas, searching out yoga communities, smiley people, and new friends.
Life is the most rewarding when filled with new friends and that is what CSing creates. Since discovering CS I have delved into all of its layers and endeavoured to utilize this resource in all ways possible.


I believe that in life the answer should always be YES to make sure you're pushing your boundaries and really experiencing life not just living it. I guess I would have to describe myself as a hedonistic extrovert.
Contrarily, I have found recently that the sheer opulence of some disheartening and I am trying to live in a sustainable manner both environmentally and emotionally.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfing when I travel, Hosting when I have a 'home'.


I surfed across Europe and hosted people whenever I had a couch. I surfed across Canada and met some of the most amazing people ever. Now I have been traveling Latin America for a couple of years and hosting when I'm semi-permanent somewhere and surfing when I meet cool people to stay with!


Dancing, Sailing, Playing cello, experiencing new cultures, political and economic history, languages, dancing some more, music in general, classical literature, beaches, yoga, artesania, sushi, kite boarding, and lots more.
I really love world politics and economics. The climate change crisis is fascinating and I try to do my part.
