About Me


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


Im a South African/German, i've lived in Australia for most of my life, but have now moved to London. 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 members.
I have couch surfed around Europe, discovered new and exciting cultures and people.


I have Hitch Hiked around Germany briefly with a fellow CSer, as well as Hitch Hiking 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.
