About Me


To try everything at least once


I love to travel and see new places, but I'm just as happy to stay home with a good book or movie. I'm very organised, cos I'm such a scatter brain.
I love cooking for myself and other people, and I have a absolute passion for wine
I want to embrace live and all it has to offer, but sometimes I need a little help, cos I'm actually very shy. :)
I'm wheat-intollerant, so I don't eat normal bread and pasta unless I can help it. Luckily, I have came up with a host of alternative recipes.


Treat others the way that you want to be treated.
Eat, drink and be merry :)
Never stop dancing

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


If you need to know about cultural activities in the city, I'm your girl. If you need a guide, maybe I show you around, or give you some tips on what to do and what not to waste your money on
