About Me


Just go with the flow and travel to experience scenery, cultures and people.


I like sharing stories, good times, knowledge and meeting exciting new people!

I live a slightly eclectic lifestyle, but generally keep a mellow and easygoing attitude. I enjoy good food, drink, landscapes, sunrises/sunsets. I have many goals in life, and am driven to achieve them. I lead an active and healthy lifestyle and truly enjoy being outdoors. Sometimes the party gets the best of me but I am generally a responsible person. Courteous, appreciative and polite.

I always try and look on the bright side, and have as much fun as I can in a given situation. There are so many different aspects of life that I enjoy and have an incredibly open mind to new experiences.

I can be pretty spontaneous, plans are great but so is planning not to have a plan and just going with the flow.

Any further questions, just ask!


Smile often, and see what happens. Respect the earth, we only have one.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
