About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To have many stories and potentially large swathes of time I can't remember when I'm 90

ABOUT ME

I'm a Canadian who's been living in the Middle East for two years. I love to travel, and am just starting to try solo-adventuring! I'm fun, easy going, and like to really experience places I visit. By that I mean I want to see things that are necessarily listed in Lonely Planet, and meet interesting people while I'm doing it.

PHILOSOPHY

I'm going to be a big nerd here and quote some T.S. Elliott:

"In a minute there is time for decisions and revisions a minute will revise"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Well, currently I run an events magazine so anyone coming to Qatar is more than welcome to look me up for some insider tidbits- I tend to have an inbox full of what's happening next month.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've never couchsurfed before! This is my first try at this, I found out about it thru a flatmate and a story I wrote for a magazine, and thought I'd give it a whirl.

Interests

Culture, music, dance, eating things without knowing what's in them, theatre, getting lost, reading, writing, taking an entirely unreasonable number of photographs, shennanigans (but not Tomfoolery).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One amazing thing? I spent 30 days in a kayak in northern Labrador, a province in Canada. We were above the tree line, in the tundra, in a part of the country where there is no light pollution because there are simply no people. For a month we paddled past ice bergs, whales, seals, and tried to wave at England (it was a bit far away, but there was nothing between us and it!), with nothing but what we could carry. Oh, and didn't shower. But somehow part of the fun of lying under Northern Lights and seeing a part of the world few people make it to was being incredibly stinky.
