About Me


To go out there and find fun!


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.

The whole of eastern and southern Africa, Costa Rica, Borneo 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.


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


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

Racket sports, Horse riding, safaris.

Love art of all kinds,

Pubs, quirky bars and cafes, love to watch the world go by now and again.
