About Me

I'm 23, from England and a graduate of the History, Literature and Culture of the Americas. At the minute I'm in Spain practicing Spanish, visiting beautiful towns cities and people and working on organic farms!

Tengo 23 años, soy de Ingaterra y estudio la historia, literatura y cultura de America. :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've had great experiences couchsurfing. I met up for coffee, dinner and drinks with CSers in Vietnam, Thailand, Nepal and Argentina. In Kathmandu I was very kindly taught how to tighten my own dreadlocks using a needle via couchsurfing. In Cordoba I made a great friend that I went back to visit after couchsurfing with him.


Reading, wine, photography! I like to make things- I'm learning to make dreamcatchers, natural beauty products and jewellery with string/metal. Nature!

Leyendo, vino, fotografía! Estoy aprendiendo a hacer atrapas sueños, productos naturales y joyas de hilo y metal! La naturaleza!
