About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meeting people from around the world, learning new things and eating, drinking, laughing together!

ABOUT ME

I love couch surfing, travelling, meeting people, talking, new experiences, experiencing the kindness of strangers, hospitality, being outside, mountains, the sea, music.....

PHILOSOPHY

I believe in People, I believe in God and I believe in Love.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have both hosted and surfed and always enjoyed the experience. I live in Leeds and share a house with 2 housemates and a cat called Twiggy, we would love to host guests if we can! If you are requesting to stay with us, please address the message to 'Nina' because I've found that CS has changed over the past couple of years, and not necessarily for the best. I get a lot of requests now I live in Leeds and would like to know that in the spirit of CS you want to stay with me, rather than just a blanket message to everyone in Leeds or other cities in Yorkshire. I still want to participate as I've met some truly wonderful people through it, and I want to meet/host/surf with people who see CS and want to be part of it in a similar way to me, thanks!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have been hosted in France, Bulgaria, Mexico and the UK and hosted others when I lived in Bradford, and each experience has been wonderfully different!

Interests

Fair trade, having fun with my friends, drinking coffee, wild swimming and festivals! I can take you wild swimming in my favourite yorkshire waterfalls, rivers and reservoirs if you want :-) I'm trying to be vegan.
