About Me


I left home in December 2011 with the intention of seeing things and living out cliches... I do my utmost to broaden my horizons and take myself out of my comfort zone. Trying (emphasis on trying) to learn a new language, meeting people, confronting my inherent laziness, working and living in a hostel...


Being open to new things even if they scare the sh*t out of you...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Currently travelling. If you host me I will cook for you! When I have a home you will be more than welcome to stay!!


I love the simple things - sunlight, weather (hot or cold), sensations, feelings, hugs.
