About Me

I am a young traveller who aspires to one day be an old traveller.

I love to read, write, watch films, learn, eat blueberries, talk about sharks and see the world. I can never decide which I like better: quick, whirlwind trips where I see a different place every day or long, leisurely moments where I get to intimately know the people and places around me. Each time I think I've decided, it gets all mixed up again. Thus, the only solution I see is to:

travel, travel, travel
listen, listen, listen
learn, learn, learn.

Then maybe I'll come to figure it out. In the meantime - vamos!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To learn more about culture, community and couches through the eyes of a local. My top three passions in life are travelling, making personal connections with those around me and being creative - singing, writing, doodling. Couchsurfing is a wonderful way to combine all of my favourite things into one grand adventure!


Music, rock climbing, great white sharks, travel, films, literature and learning forever and ever.
