About Me


Leave the world a better place than I found it


I'm an outgoing, over enthusiastic, smiley person. I am a Support Worker for vulnerable adults - a job I honestly look forward to every Monday : ) I am very trusting and see the best in people. I love to learn about new cultures, new sports, new people.


When in Rome...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


If anyone is travelling around Buckinghamshire I would love to host and join your adventures. This summer I am volunteering and travelling around India with my boyfriend for four months : D


Couchsurfers are a certain breed of happy-go-lucky, confident travellers. I feel lucky to be part of it. I have surfed in the USA, Eastern Europe and Ireland and am so so grateful for the generosity and friendship I have found. I have hosted down the East coast of USA whilst studying abroad.
