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 grew up in New Zealand but am currently living in Tanzania working for a group of non-profit schools. Before that I lived in Somaliland, in Northern Somalia, for two years.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting new people. I also love travelling. So couchsurfing 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.
