About Me


To host and explore my own city. and maybe go to nz.


I am always having dreams and making plans and trying to find a way to do everything I want.
I wish I could speak another language really well - I am planning to do something about this soon.
I like to be active.


There is a lot to learn and I want interesting ways to do it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


After travelling in europe and trying couch surfing I am hoping to keep the travel alive through hosting.


My couch surfing experience is limited but I have hosted some travellers from the other side of the world once before and it was one of the best times of my life! I enjoy the accents, the stories, and showing people around where I live - it's also a good opportunity to get out and discover things that just pass you by when you live somewhere!


Wandering in new places, looking at arty stuff, listening to music, running, tennis, swimming at the beach, walking + hiking, boats, water, cycling, swings, cartwheels, in depth conversations, learning words in other languages, meeting new people, watching people, having ideas...
