About Me


Swagger on...


Simply me! ...to summarize anyhow living the crazy life in this crazy world, with it's unlimited supply of suprises

...I moved from South Africa to Italy when i was kid, and lived for a short while in Ireland, working for a sustainability ngo, experiences which have influenced my life deeply

...I love to learn about different cultures, I guess because it's always been an important part of my life


be true to yourself

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


mmm...how it all started...in lovely Venice! thanks to amazing, creative people from around the globe passing by to visit...




I like to hum a tune from time to time especially if out for a stroll in the park or at the beach, I simply adore the sea, smell of seaweed, but won't turn down a hike in the mountains...of course few more little treats such as the scent of a fresh cup of coffee at the crack of dawn (perhaps more a must!), fiddling with coffee beans (a little reminder of those days when we'd grind our own), for those cold nights a steaming hot cup of tea, all the time music, music, music, & frequent nonsensical streams of conciousness...writing, scribbling, languages, art...& much much more!

Music, Movies & Books

I hips and I hops...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Bosnia Herzegovina...things didn't quite go as planned...and that was the best part!

Making it to the top of Mount Fuji and watching the sun rise...but bravest mission of all, singing karaoki for the first time ever straight after our descent!
