About Me

My house is near Soweto in Johannesburg, which is ideal for travellers that want to experience the people of South Africa. You can reach my house by train, buses, minibus taxi (shared taxi), Uber, meter taxi or I have parking for cars. Chill out in the swimming pool, acclimatize, explore Soweto, chat and plan your next adventure.

If you can bring me some typical food from your country then I would be very grateful! I love to try new foods.

I am relaxed and easy to talk to. I make friends very easily, I usually travel alone so that I can spend all my time with local people. I don't travel to see places, I travel to meet people and understand their views, their opinions, their challenges and experiences. I am very interested in new experiences, new foods and most of all people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have a comfortable and safe house for travelers to explore Johannesburg. Hotels look the same everywhere in the world. For me travelling is about meeting people and Couchsurfing is a great way to meet new people.
