About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

HI!

After a lot of soul searching and many arguments with my brain I decided to pack in my fledgling career as a Lawyer and I trained to become a CELTA qualified teacher of English. Having spent four amazing years in Vietnam I moved to China pre-pandemic for three years. Next stop was Mauritius for 1 year during Covid and now it's the Dolomites in Trentino for hiking and ski-ing adventures. Come join in this amazing place full of peaks, trails and outdoor activities!

Hope to meet some fellow Couchsurfers soon and have some new adventures from the site!!! :)

PHILOSOPHY

Relax, walk and talk!

Teach, Learn, Share

"I'd rather be ashes than dust,
a spark burnt out in a brilliant blaze,
than be stifled by dry rot,
I'd rather be a superb meteor,
every atom of me a brilliant fiery glow,
than a sleepy and permanent planet,
For mans chief purpose is to live not to exist,
I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them,
I shall use my time!"

Jack London, Circa 1902.
