About Me


To NEVER forget life is about the small things.


I moved back home to Aberdeen after travelling for 5 years. I learned so much while i was away and met so many incredible people that sometimes it gets a little overwhelming. I miss people and moments a lot... as most of you know that's the downside but i wouldn't change it. I came home with no idea what the hell i was gona do, you know, the standard 'how can i ever readjust to normality?!' but i did by starting my own camper van rental business. It's been hard work but super rewarding. I absolutely love being home. I feel like i'm discovering my city for the first time.


Start each day with a smile and good vibes. Every emotion is contagious so make sure it's happiness you're spreading. It's good to feel good and to make others feel the same, spread that shit everywhere!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I havent used Couch surfing too much to be honest but the few times i had have been great.
I look forward to being able to host someday. Always happy to meet other couch surfers, go for a coffee/beer. Especially if you are new to Aberdeen :)


My life is currently vans, vans, vans! If i'm not travelling in one then i'm fixing one or talking about them or looking for ideas for the next one.... it's definitely become an obsession but i love it!
I'm also mad about cooking vegetarian food and showing people how delicious it can be.
