About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Life is flying by at 100mph so enjoy every moment possible

ABOUT ME

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, learn about others and have a great time!

PHILOSOPHY

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

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Over the years I have hosted wherever I had had a room and surfed on many a trip. I love the opportunity it give to meet like minded people who appreciate differences, cultures, open minds and good times!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

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. This was now.. eight years ago!

Some of my best friends have been made though this delightful page and though we are on other sides of the world, it's beautiful to know there is a kindred spirit out there looking forward to next time!

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!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Cook sing and dance! Show up most gratitude and definitely contribute a beer or two!
