About Me


Explore Europe, Meet People and Have FUN!!!! :-)


Hey!Im a 25yr old South African/German, i've been living in Australia for most of my life, but im now setting out to explore what Europe has to offer for the next year (edit: I have now settled down in Dresden) :-)Im open-minded and easy going, enjoy all types of people and learning about different cultures.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am more than happy to show people around or just have a coffee or hang out. I have hosted a few CS and non CS membersI am hoping to couch surf around Europe, discovering new and exciting cultures and people.I especially have an interest in visiting Germany and learning German, as this is where my late father was from.


I have only hosted a few people so far, But intend on hosting as many people as possible when settling back down.

I have Hitch Hiked around Germany briefly with a fellow CSer, and more recently Hitch Hiked from Poland to Spain over 2 weeks. Couch Surfing all the way, and met some amazing people.


I am an active Geocacher and would love to go caching with anyone who visits, I also love cooking, baking, travelling, learning, meeting new people, creative arts, music, reading, photography, discovering, designing and making glass jewellery (pendants).
making memories, pushing personal boundaries and experiencing new adventures.
