About Me


I quit my job in Shanghai (after ten years) and just finished travelling around South and Central America for 9 months. Back in the UK now visiting family for Christmas but as of next weekend I will be a digital nomad travelling the world again. First stop Sicily. Maybe then coming to a country near you!

I hope we cross paths at some point. Looking forward to meeting you :)

Love to meet new people. Love to travel. Goal is 100 countries - now on around 70.


Open-Minded and always learning.....

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meet people in different countries. I have used Couchsurfing all over the world to meet cool and interesting people!

Couchsurfing is amazing!

I have experienced so much warmth and help and hospitality from people in the couchsurfing community and fellow travellers. Travel is one of the best things you can do to broaden your mind and fight prejudice and ignorance. And it's so amazing there is such a strong community of travellers sharing their experiences. Couchsurfing is amazing. Did I say that already? 😂


Scuba diving, travelling, partying!

Teach, Learn, Share

"Is this all there is? Then let's go dancing. Let's break out the booze and have a ball"

"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."

"I'm not crazy.... my reality is just different from yours"
