About Me


To get off the tourist trail that I have previously stuck to!


I am laid back, talkative, always willing to try new things, tastes & especially new activities. I try to fit adventure into my life anytime I can in between working. I'm trying to expand my experience of couchsurfing and meeting people through it as so far i'm just a beginner!


Thrive in naivety..

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm always willing and able for a good chat!


Have only couchsurfed once via this website but have been taken into homes in Bolivia and Palestine. The world is a friendly place! Although I have often randomly met with couchsurfers on the street.


Rock climbing, soccer, golf, scuba diving, kitesurfing, meeting people over a quite drink. I am interested in current affairs and whats going on in the world. In terms of the type of history I am into; when I travel to/read about somewhere I usually gravitate towards anything to do with the period post World War II - Present day.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Machu Picchu...cliched but true! Petra is a close second. Have loved kitesurfing in Columbia and ice climbing in Bolivia! As an undiscovered location Mostar of Bosnia is pretty amazing. Istanbul has just become the most amazing place I have been (in every way!).
