About Me


Stone-turning, laughing, living!


I'm on my gap year (starting Uni in sept. 2012). My friends would say would say that I'm fun and that I like adventures and spontinaeity! I'm 18 years old and I wanted to see what I could of the world before I started school.
I travel at almost every opportunity I get, and there is a lot of them, because I work for a travel company leading school trips. I lead my first highschool trip to Nicaragua in March and it was an amazing experience. It was SO rewarding.


Choose positivity, choose love, choose happiness. Don't worry, be happy!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have had none yet but I hope that will change :)


I like the arts (singing, guitar, painting, writing) and I like making new friends and I LOVE to travel and get off the beaten path. I love the outdoors. I like international volunteering because it gives you a chance to give back and connect with a community in a really rare and meaningful way.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Being in sacred valley in Peru. Makes you realize how small we are.
Sagrada Familia in Barcelona was incredible. It helped me appreciate human potential.
Auschwitz left me awestruck because it's just so incredibly sad and powerful and immense. I could say so many things about it but it was the most significant thing I've seen so far.
