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.

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. I have been on a few adventures in Brazil and Europe where I was hosted by more wonderful people. Unfortunately my student accommodation does not allow me to host people, but I am always willing to give advice and recommendations as well as meet up for a drink!
