About Me


To see the world and meet its wierd and beautiful people


I am a full-time Law student at Stellenbosch University but originally from Cape Town. I have a passion for travel, people and the environment. I love yoga, good books & films and to be outdoors (my family is big into the bushveld!)

I love meeting new and interesting people and have found many on my travels who inspire me to continue meeting people.

I am an easy going person who loves to laugh, eat and go on adventures. I love the outdoors and being in touch with nature :) I am very passionate about the world and sustainability. I believe that people should be more focused on what they can do for others rather than themselves. I try to live by this idea and give back to people less fortunate.


Everyone must put into this world at least what they take form it- Einstein

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I first couchsurfed in New Zealand and loved it. I met some incredible people and found that it was one of the most exciting experiences. I have also hosted a few people since returning home but it is difficult has I have a small place to live in. But I am always willing to give advice, show people around & if I can host them!


I started surfing in New Zealand and I now believe it is the best and only way to see a country! I have since hosted a few people, met up with foreigners and also surfed in Brazil where I met wonderful people. I hope to do it more in the future when I have my own place to host people.
