About Me

I would have to say i'm a very positive, friendly and energetic individual...I don't take myself too seriously (sometimes I should). I'm always up for a good time and a little adventure. I'm really just someone who is unapologetically herself :)

Currently: doing an MA in social protection systems

PHILOSOPHY : *Smile and Laugh often*

* Treat others the way you would like to be treated* (golden rule)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It started out as an economical way to travel and ended up being the only way I want to see a new place or meet new people. I truly feel that I have had the best connections with people I've met on this platform, and would wonder where my life would be without having opened up to people here and having them open up to me.
I'm happy to have the opportunity to host my fellow surfers and repay what has been graciously been given to me.. the gift of travel, community and friendship.



I like going where the good vibes are! Dancing or sitting at a pub, listening to live music, poetry and comedy or just anything social! I love discovering people's unique stories through conversation and enjoy learning about myself in the process. I am curious about learning about other cultures and customs (whilst also eating their amazing foods)! I feel that the other side of many stories are told through our own experiences of a country or place. Being outdoors is always a therapeutic experience, so I'm always up for adventures there: the beach, biking, hiking or just wandering around and people watching :)
