About Me


To absorb as much culture as possible, and learn about other people's perspectives, dreams and aspirations in lands that are foreign to me.


About me...? People say I am funny, good company, very accepting and insightful. I say that I am silly, love social situations and I know when I am wrong!
I guess I'm still defining who I am, and I am really looking forward to travelling alone. I like a good contentious debate although I am mild mannered, I could also spend all day shooting the breeze and discussing the intricacies of a parallel universe ;)


My main lessons I have learnt, to date are as follows!: We are the only ones responsible for ourselves; resentment and blame are baggage that are too heavy to carry in this short life; to err is human, to forgive is divine; timing is everything.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


None - how scared and excited am I!!??


I love cooking mediterranean and african foods and reading books that are life affirming. I am really into cooking for people, I am learning the piano at the mo (although I am currently crap). I enjoy theatre and anything new!

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm crazy over old black and white movies, especially 'Brief encounter'. Fave writers are Gabriel Garcia Marquez & Andrey Kurkov. I'm really eclectic in my musical tastes; I am drawn to world music especially african music, brazilian and a bit of french music. I love the arts although I am far from pompus and pretentious, I just enjoy learning :)
