About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To go out there and find fun!

ABOUT ME

I have always loved travel since an early age when my parents drove through europe every summer for 6 weeks in a car with a tent and my brother and I.

I love to find out about new cultures and see natural beauty and wildlife from all around the world.

The Atacama desert, bolivian salt flats, Rwanda, the Ecuadorian and Peruvian Andes have given me some of the best views.

Costa Rica, Tanzania and Tasmania have given me some of the best animal experiences.

Most recently Ethiopia, especially the danakil depression has blown my mind and Zimbabwe's and Botswana's animal encounters are so surreal and yet I'm still alive to talk about it!

I am interested in learning, the more knowledge about the world, the better.

I am a very socialble person who will try any adventure once.

PHILOSOPHY

Treat people how u wish to be treated.

I believe where ever you go you can always find something new that amazes you.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I use couch surfing as another source of information about places and travelling places. maybe a more "insider" knowledge about a place is found here.

It would be nice to meet like minded creatives who love travelling

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have yet to have an experience of my own.

I did meet an american who was couch surfing in manchester about 3 yrs ago, and he raved about this site.
