About Me


I lived in South Korea for around 4.5 years and during that time I hosted and surfed a lot, which I loved! I also walked 400km across Bavaria last summer, during which time I also surfed a lot, which made my trip 1000x more memorable.

We are both nice, a bit wacky, warm-hearted, up for a laugh, and open-minded!


Be the change you want to see in the world.
Sometimes, not getting what you wanted is a great stroke of luck.
Everyday is a gift. Everyday is best.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am inspired by how Couchsurfing brings out the best in people; the willingness to share, learn, explore, support. It is a wonderful thing!


I have loved both hosting and surfing! I felt like every person I have met has become my sister/brother after being together!


Music (of aaaalll kinds, new artists every week!), hiking, cycling, exploring, wild food foraging, playing and writing music, meeting new people, my darling dog, cooking (usually vegetarian or vegan when I can get it!), eating, making mojitos
