About Me


To try new things, get better at the things I like and find people who inspire me


I'm a positive person who wants to enjoy life and make a difference to things I feel are important. I work hard at things I'm passionate about and I'm lazy at stuff that doesn't matter to me. I have an enquiring mind. I love laughing and pushing my limits. I like to try new things. I love wildlife.


Yeah, I'll try that

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I like meeting new people. I open my home to those who would treat me well. I graciously accept the invitations of those who are willing to share their time.


I've hosted 25 people in London and surfed in Belgium and in Poland.

Please don't be offended if I don't respond to your request! I don't always have time to check Couchsurfing. Happy travels :-)
