About Me

CURRENT MISSION

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

ABOUT 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.

PHILOSOPHY

Yeah, I'll try that

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN 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.
