About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To become a pre-school teacher, and then explore the world.. or will it be the other way around??

ABOUT ME

Right now I'm waiting to hear from the universities to see if I get accepted to a pre-school teachers programme.. Fingers crossed!

I consider myself to be a kind person, more of the quiet type... Although, once you get me going I can be just as crazy as the next person! But you can't really understand who someone is from what you read about them, so lets just find out if we meet? :)

PHILOSOPHY

Don't think too much, it may cause you to miss out on alot.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I hope to find kind souls to show me around and possibly host me while I'm travelling. When I settle down I hope to be able to host and show others around.

I have surfed in Swansea and Bern. Met a few fellow surfers in Dalarna. Hosted 3 Australians in Swansea, good night that was! :D I have also met some super nice CSers in L.A.,San Francisco and Stockholm.
