About Me

At the moment, I am on an endless (well until the money runs out) trip abroad with the aim of meeting many new people and experiencing many different countries and it's cultures. I feel that I can share my passion for learning different things, and I feel this is best achieved through meeting and learning from other people. I have a real interest in learning new languages and exchanging ideas with people

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I joined couchsurfing as, after being told about it by several others whilst travelling, that it is a great way to meet other nice and open people and exchange ideas, skills and share a few laughs along the way. I would like to see and experience as much as possible throughout my time abroad and I hope that, when I can in the future, be a host for others

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Went on a trip to Malawi alone when I was 20 years old as I had a craving to see Africa. It was such an eye opening experience and one that has taught me a lot
