About Me


Travel, have fun, meet fun people and visit beautiful places!


I am a junior doctor at Bristol Royal Infirmary. Graduated July 2010 from University College London and have moved out west. First two years post grad was in Bath, took a year off to travel, now based in Bristol. Hoping to specialise in hospital medicine probably oncology

I enjoy athletic sports e.g. running and swimming and am aiming to do a triathlon at some point.

I am big into travelling and thrive on backpacking, especially by myself and in unusual destinations. First started with shortish trip to south asia, then went to south america where i really caught the bug and have never looked back! have been to many more places e.g. middle east, central america, china, india, east africa , horn of africa, southern africa, west africa.

Altough i'm not a huge music fan my other big interest is going to bars and clubbing, after many drinks i seem to embarrassingly attach myself to dance floors

I try and improve myself by reading high quality novels, and then ruin it by watching immature tv

I love food and i love to cook


if you have to do something by yourself, it shouldn't hold you back

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couch surfed a number of times in west africa, and California. Hope to continue when visiting other places and start hosting!
