About Me

CURRENT MISSION

See new places and faces.

ABOUT ME

I like excitement, good humour, inexplicable experiences, looking at mad views, and almost all kinds of music. I'm a student in Cape Town and looking forward to travelling the world when I finish studying.

PHILOSOPHY

There's always more out there than what you already know or have already experienced - what I haven't yet done is far more exciting to me than what I have. I like to explore, try new things and live in the present.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've surfed a few couches and have had surfers stay in a communal house I lived in.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It's such a unique experience to be welcomed into someone's house in a new country and feel so at home. I've loved it so far. Couchsurfing has given me opportunities to learn from beautiful people and have genuine experiences of new places through the eyes of local people. It's the best way to travel!

Interests

Music (I used to play a lot, at the moment I listen mostly), reading, spending time outdoors and with friends, writing poetry, music festivals, floating in the sea, and pretty much anything that makes my heart beat fast.

Music, Movies & Books

Books: I'd say On the Road, 1984 and Crime and Punishment are the favourites that come to mind. I like biographies of random people with good stories as well.
Music: my main fascination in life is music. I love anything everything from classical to reggae to lots of electronic. Some favourites... The Roots, Pink Floyd, The Fugees, any of the Marleys, The Streets, Tracy Champman...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Four of Bob Marley's children, plus a few grandchildren, singing 'Could you Be Loved' live.

Teach, Learn, Share

Coming into any situation with an open heart and mind, I am ready to listen, tell, learn and teach in every human interaction. My friend and I will be travelling with instruments and a song in our hearts, ready to make music with new friends.

What I Can Share With Hosts

Laughter and love, music, vegetarian cooking, perhaps a poem..

Countries I've Visited

Austria, Canada, France, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

South Africa, United Kingdom
