About Me

ABOUT ME

My friends would describe me as an outgoing person who is desperate to see the world before it's too late. Who knows when there will be no more tomorrow, might as well live today.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I really like the community aspect of Couchsurfing and though I'm currently unable to host I'd be delighted to meet up with visitors and locals in Amman.

Also, I love to travel and staying with local people who are part of this great Couchsurfing community is really practical and exciting.

Interests

I have a passion for languages and cultures foreign to me. Hence why I studied African and South Asian History in London at the School of Oriental and African studies.

I also worked in Mauritius for a year and Thailand for four months which really opened my eyes and I never want to close them again. I'm currently living and working in Amman, Jordan and looking for opportunities to explore at the weekends or if I have any leave from work.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was off work for a week from teaching in Mauritius a friend and I decided to go on a trip off the beaten track. We hopped on a rickety old bus and set out for La Pouce (or 'the thumb') to climb it. We climbed up in over 30 centigrade heat, sweating and falling in the mud (it had been raining), and didn't look back until we got to the top. It was the most beautiful view I have ever seen- like being on top of the world. We could see the Indian Ocean blue before our eyes, the capital city (port louis) down below, and the town where we lived lurking in the distance beneath a cloud...

I think one as elaborate as that can stand alone.
