About Me



Eat my way in chocolate around the world


I like stimulating conversation and meeting people different from myself. I like adventure, rockclimbing (very amateur); dancing and going for long long hikes, which not irregularly leads to me getting lost. I like cinnamon, honey and dark chocolate. I enjoy experimenting with food and never follow recipes. I like reading... when I get the time. I like learning new things, especially languages, but dont do anything particularly well. I enjoy philosophical talks and driving a manual car. I like eating from random vendors off of the street and collecting postcards.


Do what makes you happy, with consideration for others.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To share experiences and learn.

My first time couchsurfing was in the USA - stayed with a number of families/couples/singles in the States - at Mammoth, Vegas, St George, Salt Lake City and Gardiner. We juggled and played chess with hosts' kids in Mammoth and learnt all about rock climbing and fighting fires from our extreme-sports St George hosts. In Salt Lake City we managed to convince our hosts to take some time off and join us on our roadtrip for a few days north to Yellowstone! More recently I've couchsurfed in europe and stayed with an incredible family in France in St Jean en Royans, whom I highly recommend meeting!


Dancing like a crazy person, travel, hiking, rockclimbing, running, french food (well, all food really), learning languages, collecting other peoples' favourite music, visiting art museums and sketching
