About Me


Live Well - Love Much - Laugh Often


Me? Well, i love advenutres, people, laughing, jumping, climbing, reading, eating, travelling obviously.
I enjoy talking and listening - it is a great way to practice languages.


Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.

Love your neighbour.

Be happy, you never know who is falling in love with your smile.

Only a sith deals in absolutes.

Birds in their little nest agree.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Host at our family home in Catalonia, Spain or at my Uni in Aberystwyth, Wales and then surf whenever I travel.


I first used CSing when my brother and I backpacked Spain staying with couchsurfers. The people we stayed with were so kind and open, they really made our our travels.
And now I have just finished a 3 month trip through a good deal of Europe where I CSed a lot.


Things that interest me, a lot I guess. The sea is my favourite interest.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love good movies, good books and good music. Anything that shows talent and makes me think. I'm open to try anything.
But specifically - The Poisenwood Bible (book), Holy matrimony (film) and the Like Crazy Soundtrack, muse, the Cat Empire (music)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I sat on the pilot's lap and drove the plane (or so I thought) on a flight from LA to London.

When backpacking India, we were travelling through the mountains over night in the back of a dodgy bus and as the sun rose over the tea fields and breathtaking mountains the beauty was just...

We went cliff jumping and rock climbing around an isalnd just off Portugal which was amzing.

I travelled for 4 months around the US and Mexico in a car which was incredible and I met the most amazing people.

I interrailed most of Europe for 3 months.. too many things to list.

I got sunburnt spending 2 weeks in a paradise in south Mexico.

I climbed to the top of a coconut tree on a beach in Goa, India.

I hitchhiked across French Guiana, twice.

I walked from France to Brazil.

I fell in love with the sunsets in the Brazilian Jungle

Teach, Learn, Share

I am really enjoy practising languages... and am always looking to learn more.
I like to cook - don't expect too much though!
I enjoy swapping stories, I will listen gladly.
Quite impulsive, so i never really know where we could end up, but I am sure we would end there laughing!
