About Me

I feel as if my entire life was leading me to travel. I often felt like there was something lacking whilst playing an active role in the system. I feel the earth is our home and we are all connected. nature/humans/animals, all one, in love, and not in a cliche way but in the very realest of ways. I grew up in a diverse country with friends of different races, sexualities, social classes and religions and therefore I am not programmed to judge others based upon such things, I strive to maintain an open mind/heart towards everyone. I believe, that whatever your beliefs, you should not attempt to force them onto anyone. That includes all of the above categories. I believe in having love and respect for all life including our own. I believe in living life to its utmost potential, staying true to what you believe even if its difficult. The way in which I travel is spending very little, I don't have an exact budget but i basically do not spend money unnecessarily. I hitchhike a lot and have slept in all sorts of places. I will camp when possible and I know how to adapt and survive and also to be happy with very little. I am grateful to be a part of life and appreciative of all that comes along with it. :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is a brilliant way to travel more cheaply, to meet local people and get their take on the place. To exchange lives and cultures together. To meet all kinds of different and sometimes wonderful people. I'm on here to travel in a way that I prefer to the 'norm' and to hopefully meet others who are like minded.

Music, Movies, and Books

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Left my comfort zone.. began to live life in the fullest sense of the expression :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I really enjoy getting to know people, their life stories and experiences, their culture and ways of living. The history of places and people also fascinates me and I like to learn as much as possible in these ways from the people that I share time with. Don't be shy to ask me anything that might be on your heart be it personal or just a general question :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I do not come baring gifts other than that of togetherness. We can share in each others company..the simple joys and pleasures of life :) I can share my heart..my time..my experiences..we can talk about anything and laugh or even cry together. If we are open hearted and willing to learn I believe we can gain something from every encounter. I will always try to leave a place better than when I arrived and I hope that is always the case :)
