About Me


Finding adventure through travelling, friends, books, art and music.


I enjoy flitting between the wild and the city, between silence and loud music, being a child as well as an adult, and between curling up in my own bed with a book and being a stranger in a foreign country at a massive party. I believe in trying it all, to better understand both yourself and others.


"Since I have stopped taking life seriously, it has become immeasurably better" Hunter S. Thompson

And then... some more epigrammatic thievery for the philosophy section of my profile... the wise words from Yoda:

"No! Try not. do. Or do not. There is no try."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am proud to say I come from Cape Town, South Africa and I'd be so happy to introduce others to my home (and see things that travel agents could never tell you). As I have traveled a lot in my own country, I can help with any information needed on further traveling.

And then of course, I love traveling myself!So a couch would always be appreciated.


I am new to this, but I have had friends who have met great people through couch surfing all around the world.


The outdoors, music, art, theatre, literature, parties and, of course, traveling.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once jumped out of my family's small boat when I saw a huge school of dolphins and decided to swim with them. They were swimming north in the Indian Ocean off the Transkei coast (in Kwazulu Natal, East coast of South Africa). I spent ages holding my breath underwater and simply listening to them.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have a history of music and art so I am quite up to date with the cultural goings on in my city. I also know great places to go exploring outdoors around Cape Town.
I have a wide range of different friends who are all interested in other types of activities/places/people so I can just ask them if I can't help someone directly myself.
