About Me


To be a world citizen (well I'm too short to be an air hostess)


I'm just a normal down-to-earth girl, but I do tend to do extraordinary things (like moving to a strange country with a broken leg). I like to have a good time and I laugh at myself most of the time. I like travelling and meeting new people, so I want to do that as often as possible. I also want to be famous (and that I guess says it all).


This question keeps me awake every night. Haven't figured it out yet.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I had my first Couchsurfing experience 5-8 October 2006 in Busan, Korea and it was amazing. Thanks to Eric Spence who showed me and my flatmate the best time. It was so much more than we expected.


Definitely not Politics, though I do like to joke about it.
Travelling, Hanging out with friends, Parties, Food (cooking and sampling), Drinking while talking someone's head off, Laughing, Writing

Music, Movies & Books

This might give you a clear idea:
Fav movie is Shawshank Redemption
Fav music is R&B
Fav book so far: The Alchemist

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I went on a tour around Europe in the summer of 2005 and saw the "Blue Grotto" in Italy, just off the Isle of Capri. Its the most beautiful sight I've ever seen (and I'm not even a fan of the water).
