About Me

I like meeting people from all paths of life and like sharing ideas and experiences. I like to get inspired. I like to go out and explore, feeling self-conscious or not.

I think I'd describe myself as the kind of person that devours books, loves wandering around in the cold then go for black coffee, wears fingerless gloves, prefers rats over dogs, carries a black ballpoint pen at all times, is not religious but appreciates churches, plays her favourite records over and over and over again, and cannot decide whether she prefers her hair long or short.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I belong to an odd species called 'humans' and as a result need social interaction to stay healthy.
