About Me


Explore the world whilst having as much fun as is humanly possible!


I am a bit (understatement) of a wildlife nerd, so my past travels have revolved around working with wildlife. Luckily I also love humans, especially ones who make life happen for themselves and who seek out exciting opportunities!

I love enjoying the wonders of life with people, whilst laughing as much as possible along the way. Having said that, I can also be a serious lady (especially when it comes to people's feelings and the environment ) so I really enjoy an in-depth chat too.

I am a vegan. I have no problems with people eating meat, I can relate, I ate it for a long time. I am looking forward to meeting, hosting and surfing with people who are not scared of a vegan 😊.


Dance until you die (sweating will also suffice).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to go to CS meetings whenever I can and have surfed in Germany, Croatia and Denmark in the past. I currently live in a shared home with people who unfortunately don't 'get' the wonders of Couchsurfing, but once I have my own place I will be on a hosting mission!

I just want to point out that I am not on here to hook up with people. I have unfortunately had too many experiences where male hosts have felt the need to make awkward comments and advances at me, which have been completely out of the blue.


So far most (see comment above) of my CS experiences have been positive and I've learnt something from every one.


SPOTTED HYENAS, spying on wildlife, travel, cooking, meeting new people, dancing, reading, cooking and eating, playing music (currently singing, piano and guitar), spending time in cafes/parks reading, chatting and drinking tea!

Music, Movies, and Books

I am a dork and am often not cultured in my choices. Luckily this doesn't stop me; I like what I like and have no shame!

Movies: Wayne's World, Edwards Scissor Hands, Splash, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Lost Boys, Disney

TV: Twin Peaks, Pokémon, The Royle Family, Alan Partridge, Xena Warrior Princess

I'll listen to all sorts of music, but some particular favourites are Ella Fitzgerald, Tom Waits, Johnny Cash, Chromeo, Solomon Burke, Muddy Waters. For dancing, anything with an African beat is a win!

Some books I have recently enjoyed: Revolutionary Road, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Jurassic Park, Silent Spring, Last Child in the Woods, The Secret Life of Trees. I love reading and am always looking for new material!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I milked a spotted hyena and accidently sprayed the milk in my face. Who does that?

Teach, Learn, Share

If you want to know about wildlife I am happy to talk about it. If you want to know about spotted hyenas I am VERY happy to talk about it.

I love learning and I am very curious. This usually results in me wanting to try a bit of everything!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love to cook. I wouldn't say I'm amazing at it, but I enjoy it all the same. I also love making people happy, so if you need a good laugh, hopefully I can remedy this!

Countries I’ve Visited

Botswana, Costa Rica, Croatia, Germany, Netherlands, Nicaragua, South Africa, Spain, Thailand

Countries I’ve Lived In

Kenya, Tanzania, United Kingdom
