About Me


I would like to travel a lot, but would like to learn about the country more. Thats why I want to couchsurf!


Well, Im 29 and i am a Science teacher. I work at an International school in Seoul. I like to go places, and really want to see more of the world! I like dancing, and am learning Salsa and meringue which is really good fun. I also really like Photography, and I love to read. Travel is a big interest of mine. I love seeing and experiencing new places and cultures.


I don't think I really have one.. this is getting too deep for me! I think I just try to do new things, but I wouldnt say I had a personal philosophy or anything like that!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far, I have not hosted anyone, I have only couchsurfed at other peoples places! I'm looking forward to having my own couchsurfers soon! I just need to get a spare mattress and then I will be ready to go!

Right now, I am still keen to meet up with people in this area, or help if I can. I pretty new here myself, but I will try my best!


I have couchsurfed in Norway and Romania, and unofficially couchsurfed in Bosnia too! They have all been really great experiences!


Going places, Meeting new people and learning about their life/ experiences, reading (especially travel books, dancing (salsa. tango etc), photography, scuba diving.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Salsa music and pretty cheesy pop music ( I am the first person to admit that I don't have a good taste in music, and that something I am ok with!)

Books: In Siberia (Colin Thubron), Bruce Chatwin writes (or used to write) amazing books: The Songlines is one of the most wonderful books I have ever read!
To Kill a Mocking Bird,
