About Me


I ADORE travelling. And after finding out about couchsurfing did i realize that it would drastically cut down on lodging expenses if I could borrow a couch :) I think couchsurfing is genius and I hope to fully experience what it has to offer.


It's really hard for me to talk about myself on command like this but I guess the basics would be that I'm Canadian and British but born and raised in Macau, China. I've lived in numerous countries throughout my life and I'm hoping to continue to do so until one day settling down somewhere. Maybe Europe. Maybe.


Instead of droning on and on about my personal philosophy I'll just give quotes that I enjoy.
"When the going gets tough, the tough gets going."
"Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." :P haha.
and a few others that haven't popped to mind right at this moment.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Personally I haven't had any couchSurfing experiences yet but I'm waiting for them to start!


I absolutely love reading books, any types of books really as long as they catch my eye. Second to that would be animals, animals and I have a very special connection, not anything like Dr.Doolittle but more like I adore them to pieces. A quick few others are mountain hiking and swimming.

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to a bit of everything in music but I really enjoy RnB ie: Alicia Keys, Boys II Men etc etc
My favorite movie of all time? The Notebook. I'm a total romantic.
I have sooo many favorite authors I can't even begin to list them.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of the most memorable experiences of the Philippines so far is going to Mt Pinatubo and swimming in the crater. The whole trip from start to finish was utter joy for me but I have to say that swimming in a volcanic crater filled with aqua green water was the cherry on top.

Teach, Learn, Share

Even attempting to speak Chinese in Macau for a foreigner gets them major plus points so I suggest definitely doing that whether in Macau or China for that matter.
