About Me


The Horn of Afrika and the Sudans


I love traveling, reading, writing, taking pictures and the sound of laughter so I am a punchline a minute kinda girl. I'm an easy going person and pretty much want to see as much of earth as possible.


If it is not making you happy then it is not worth doing.

I live my life on feelings and emotions...than say, wanting the biggest car, house etc..Though I would not mind, lol.

I'm an evolcing person. I let life write the script....only after I have handed it the pen (passport and the raod)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing




Travel, reading, music, dancing, cultures, discovering new worlds and more of what we have in common.

I am obsessed with Africa and my cultural consumption is centred around Africa. I have no choice in this matter. We are very rich, layered and fascinating, culturally. So I feed myself African cultures, followed by anything that is not from the West.

I try everything that is legal, at least once.To use hip hop slang, I am down for whatever (that will not end up in a cell, rehab etc)

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm more of a reader of everything but self help, da vinci code and alchesmist. Watch the odd movie now and again...pretty standard

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Done: Africa my waym my terms (well, our way our terms for those of us who experience Africa past stereotypes and cliches)....Sunsets and full moons are always a marvel to see. I could spend my life chasing brilliant full moon and splendid sunsets. Oh wait, that that's my dream and passion and reality.
