About Me


To find my mission :)

Get up, get done, and get back on the road. Always create!!!!


I love travelling, Reading, writing, photography and most of all meeting new and Radiant people. I am always open to anything new and different.


Dont live in the past or for the future, Now is all we truly have!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because it's amazing! (This was blank before) It's really amazing to be a part of this community. I have not yet "surfed" only hosted but I have been blessed and humbled by the beautiful people that I have had the privilege of meeting, knowing and sharing amazing experiences with!

It's amazing!


travelling, reading, writing, photography, culture, hiking, food, gardening, the ocean, socialising, not wasting precious time with the mundane :) (new... Looking for everything precious in everything no matter how mundane it seems... It never is)
