About Me

Hello everyone! Having caught the travelling bug after living in Chile and Madrid for 6 month periods as part of my study year abroad I'm looking to meet lots of fun people on my pending travels throughout the year.

I don't take life too seriously and get on well with others who know how to look at the positives and smile through the tough times 😁

In my spare time I love learning new languages or improving on ones I am currently learning- this is partly what led me to create a CS profile. I also love exploring edgy cafes, quirky urban bars and markets and, when I have time, going for walks and hikes.

Currently living in Lisbon.

Update: really not liking the fact we have to pay for CS. Goes against the principles of the app.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meet new people on my travels and create some fun memories. I like getting immersed into the local culture and ways and CS seems like the best opportunity to do this.
