About Me


Planning Australia trip Sept/Oct 2012


I am a journalist with a love for travelling and my job - a balance I try hard to find in working while taking as much time as possible to explore the world. I am free-spirited, open minded, love meeting people, gaining experiences and squeezing as much as I can from life. As cliched as it sounds I live to be exhilirated, connect and laugh.


I leave no time for 'what if's' and 'whens', I try to take my thrills as they come and live every opportunity that arrives on my doorstep. My aims in life are to travel as much as possible meeting as many people as I can while learning about different cultures.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have had great experiences being hosted while travelling in Peru and Brazil! But it is not only the people I stayed with but the many many amazing people who I met up with for drinks, dinner, parties or even just the offer of a airport pick up - that has made all the difference to my travels. These friends have helped me feel integrated into their countries and cities and truly have a mindblowing travel experience.


I am a kaleidoscope in that there are very few things that do NOT interest me! I love the outdoors and nature, and enjoy dancing, running, going to gym...reading and writing: words are fuel to my soul!! I love being airy, witty and ridiculous and serious, deep and philosophical. I can party until dawn!
