Hi, I am a 23 year old make from Northern Ireland. I am a student in University College Dublin and am studying Chemical Engineering. I would describe myself as a outdoorsy person who enjoys a wide range of sports. I have traveled a lot of Europe and little bits else around the world, normally staying in Youth Hostels and now deciding to go for couchsurfing as an alternative.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I have always enjoyed travelling and staying in youth hostels, as I feel you get to meet other people that way with couchsurfing you would get to meet and enjoy the life of a local. I love the idea of staying at a locals house, getting to know them and hearing their suggestions of what is best about where they live.
I grew up waterskiing at my local club and have waterskiied competitively in Ireland since I was 16. I then took this to University where I started and ran a wakeboarding club at the local cable. I also grew up playing field hockey and continued this at university as well playing in the top league of Ireland briefly. I have also done field hockey coaching which was very enjoyable.
