About Me


to meet as many people as possible and gather as many experiences as i possibly can in my lifetime


oh... i think i kinda covered all this above. (i guess im not blonde for nothing!)


my personal philosophy...hmmmm...
i guess its cliche but its so true:
life is what happens while you're making plans, so don't. if you hesitate then something is holding you back, so conquer it! be confidant in your decisions and fear doesn't exist - just go for it. if you desire something its for a reason so don't deny yourself that pleasure because you weren't sure. nothing kills a soul more than what if's

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


never been... i am a new member


well...obviously i love horses i got my first pony when i was like 4! and then there's that crazy side of me - i love surfing skating and all that is extreme sports...fast loud music that i can just go crazy to, but at the same yime i'm a bit of a contradiction because i love ska and reggae and just chilling with my mates. languages fasinate me and i would love to learn as many as i can! once again the contradiction comes in because while i am this crazy punk chick i also have my civalised educated side, i read books by the truck load and my favourite channels are discovery, history and animal planet! Oh and how could i forget bbc food! I love cooking so sleep on my couch and you'll never go hungry or offer me yours and i'll cook you supper!

Music, Movies, and Books

books - i love to read my favourite author for the past few years is a brittish guy by the name of Robbert Goddard he writes amazing storys that keep you interested from cover to cover.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

the most amazing thing i have ever done? the first time i stage dived. it sounds super lame but it really ment something to me. you just close your eyes and leap forward confident that your fellow skankers will catch you! it was a the frnzal rhomb south african tour 3 years ago. in this little club in cape town, the roof was so low that if you stood on the stage you could touch it with your fingers and you had to jump really carefully but it all added to the moment.

Teach, Learn, Share

well i can ride(horses and its an amazing experience so i'd be a willing teacher) and i can surf (sort of...im still learning but even if i can't teach you myself i'll def be able to find someone who can) and i'll take you round the city so you can see cape town and the surroundings at its best! if you love live music and beautiful beaches and just talking about anything and everything i can help!
