About Me


Loving People One Day at a Time


My name is Njeri. My name means someone who likes to visit in Kikuyu(my ethnic language).I grew up Nairobi, Kenya and I am almost trilingual. I went to University in the US and that's where my love for travelling began. In my four years of college, I was fortunate enough to travel to over 15 different countries.
I love taking pictures and it is my dream to be a travel photographer. My favourite musical is West Side Story, I know the words to all the songs. I cried when Tony died at the end of the movie. I love meeting new people and I love eating street food. I am currently in Vietnam looking for a job as an English teacher. I am also in the middle of a project where I am collecting books from authors from every country in the world.


Loving people is the most important thing at the end of the day

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would love to host guests once I am all settled in Vietnam.

I would also love to surf


None. I have only been to couchsurfing picnics and meetups with my friends but I have never hosted and I have never surfed.
