About Me

After living in London for the past year, I'm relocating to Almaty for a couple of months at the end of April to work with an NGO. I'm hoping to improve my Russian (which is decidedly rusty!) and do a bit of exploring at the same time.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've informally surfed in Berlin and think couchsurfing is a great way to meet open-minded, interesting people with so many different life experiences. Plus, it's always great to get to know new places beyond the standard guidebook suggestions.


Food and drink (I'm an especially big fan of SE Asian food but will try almost anything)
Travel goes without saying, as do languages and cultures
Very very amateur photography
