About Me

Hi, my name is Issy. I love cooking, travelling, singing and exploring.

My general life ethos is to do what makes me happy. I am currently living in Somaliland working as a teacher at a non-profit boarding school. I love it. In the past I have lived in Tanzania, but most of my life has been in my home country of New Zealand. I have a degree in anthropology and history.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting new people. I also love travelling. So couch surfing is perfect for me! I find it a fantastic way to see a different side of a place, to be able to go where the locals go and learn things I would never learn if I was doing it the normal 'touristy' way.


I love to cook, sing, draw, talk, walk... pretty much anything! Except sitting in an office.
