About Me

I am a South African living in Helsinki, Finland. I enjoy great company, good food and even better wine! If you come to stay at my place, I can offer you a couch, some laughter, maybe a small tour of the city and everything I have in the fridge. Feel free to ask questions.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To explore, learn, host, be hosted and enjoy. Couch Surfing is a close knit community of people centered individuals who love travelling. The world is globalized and what better way to make friends world-wide than Couch Surfing(C.S.)? The C.S. concept is so simple yet so genius, for this reason I am careful to abide by all it's rules and be the best host/guest I can be. It's simply magic and I am prepared to share that magic with as many quality people as possible.
