About Me

Hello! I'm an EFL teacher and I've just moved to León for a new job. Hoping I can find some like-minded people to hang out with! I'm from south east England, but I went to uni in Scotland, did a year abroad in Canada, and spent eight months teaching in Ecuador after graduating. I came home when Covid struck but am now off on a new adventure here in Leon!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

At the moment, I'm on Couchsurfing to see if I can meet some people in Leon. I've used couchsurfing before with two friends in Vancouver, where our host was kind enough to put all three of us up for nearly a whole week! I can't currently host guests but I would love to give back to the Couchsurfing community in the future when I'm more settled in a place of my own.


I'm a typical English literature student who loves to read and write - I always travel with a journal, and sometimes I like to write poetry and short stories. I'm a pretty active and outdoorsy person, too. I love hiking and camping, so am super excited to explore the mountains close to León!

Music, Movies, and Books

Favourite artists: Sylvan Esso, SALES, Khruangbin, Tracy Chapman, Haley Blais, Curtis Mayfield... (that's probably enough of a mix already)
Movies - one of my all time favourites is Dirty Dancing.
Books: I cannot choose!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I spent a month travelling around British Columbia with two friends, sleeping in a pop-up tent on the roof of our car. I won't tell you how many (or how few) showers we had...
