About Me



I come from a lovely area of England on the South Downs but since I turned 18 I have been yearning to visit more countries and move away from the UK.

I have been in the beautiful city of Aachen since 2018 and fall more in love with this city every day! There is something for everyone here and I will be happy to show you around if I have the time.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have hosted a bit, surfed in quite a few places.


Have met a lot of unique people through CS, most of whom have helped me feel welcome in strange lands.


reading, travelling, languages, broadening my horizons (geographically and intellectually) yoga, walks/hikes, wandering around cities without a fixed intention, cooking

Music, Movies, and Books

Kerouac, Orwell, Plath, Dostoyevsky, Garcia Marquez

The Doors, Pearl Jam, Radiohead, Rolling Stones, Stone Temple Pilots, Led Zeppelin, The Mars Volta, Alice in Chains, Noir Désir, Lana del Rey

A bout de souffle, Almodovar films, Donnie Darko, Requiem for a Dream, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, Science of Sleep, random "foreign" films

Teach, Learn, Share

Can teach English - French, Spanish, German and maybe some Swiss German as well.

Eager to learn about anything and everything!
