I've had a very interesting life, had to grow-up fast from a very young age... I love life and try to make the most of it, Life is what you make of it and is short so get out there and live it!!!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


After 6 wonderful years of living and travelling abroad and crashing on peoples couches along the way, I would like to give back what the awesome people I meet in so many places gave to me.


Travelled for 6rs around Europe living in England, Spain, Italy, France... Met amazing people from everywhere, whether it was friends i knew or friends of friends... Staying on peoples floors, couches, and even spare beds(luxury). So many experiences over the 6yrs and Spain was definately my favourite, amazing people there!!!
