Join Couchsurfing to see Christina’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm a 27 year old girl, living in beautiful Scotland, having returned at the end of 2015 from travelling New Zealand. I met a lot of the couchsurfing community in Auckland, and their kindness, friendship and experience certainly helped me through some unexpected 'tough times'!
I'm friendly, happy, laid-back and love just chilling in a comfy place with good music and good people (good food is also a bonus). I'm an introvert, but I'm not shy. I don't feel comfortable around lots of people, but I love people!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Meeting people with different stories, backgrounds, experiences..but all somehow like-minded...it's fascinating.
To help people who need advice about the country/anything I can offer
Particularly looking to meet other solo female travellers
Cooking, eating, talking, laughing, adventures, forests, lakes, the smell of outside on a crisp sunny spring morning.
Music, Movies, and Books
I don't have a favourite anything, can't limit myself, but I love a good crime novel!
TV shows: Criminal Minds (long-time fan, watched every episode), How to Get Away with Murder, Scandal, Limitless, Scorpion, Stranger Things, Once Upon a Time (guilty pleasure) and all the random Netflix exclusive shows!!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Quit my management team job to go solo travelling to the other side of the world for a year?
Teach, Learn, Share
I graduated uni in 2012 with a 4 year BSc Hons degree in Physiological Sciences (not to be confused with physiotherapy). Then trained as a fitness instructor and was starting my level 3 personal training when I moved to NZ. Volunteered in my local hospital after uni and went to College to undergo a course in practical healthcare
After I got back home...
- Volunteered with a charity to reduce food waste/public health
- Currently studying a Masters of Medical Science in Human Nutrition @ University of Glasgow
- Changed my blog to a website myself, hoping to re-launch soon (studying put this on hold)
- I love food, and the colours and interactions. I love making food and being creative!!! I love fresh and strong flavours, and I have coeliacs disease, so everything I make is gluten-free and *usually* healthy (but we all need a treat every now and then!)
What I Can Share with Hosts
Lots of happiness, food, stories, laughs and as a bonus I'm naturally very tidy/clean, organised, respectful and grateful!! :)
I like to be independent and have time to myself, so understand that guests may also be the same ..that's fine, I can guide if you have questions then you can fly like a butterfly!
