About Me

CURRENT MISSION

No worries. Always look on the bright side...

ABOUT ME

Passionate about travelling and the great outdoors.
Most of all I love the adventure of travelling with an open itinerary, allowing chance encounters and opportunities to arise.

Always happy to experience new faces & places; this is more valuable to me than any material wealth.

I like to believe we make most of our own luck by being optimistic, realising opportunities and trusting in other people.

Chilling out with a book, listening to music and exercise help me recharge. A good mixture of social life and solitude is important to me.

I enjoy a few drinks with friends or strangers :) Hopefully you will find me to be an easy going, fun and friendly CouchSurfer!

PHILOSOPHY

No problems, only solutions.

Feel free.

A life lived in fear is a life halved. By facing our fears, we gain strength, courage, and confidence.

Confidence & optimism are the keys to life.
