About Me


To get completely and utterly lost in others cultures. I'm off...


A very, very (un)prepared hitchhiker. I try, I promise! As almost every person who has hosted me knows, my visits are subject to the terms and conditions of me being a compete and utter idiot, but fortunately all my hosts have been incredible! So all is well.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's been a while since I travelled... waking up on the floor of some strange land, walking on vast and changing landscapes, exchanging conversations with people who I would never, ever had had the chance to meet before and having my eyes opened again and again. We all know why we're on here. It's extraordinary.


I adore nature and exploration. Hiking and camping are huge loves of mine so if you know places to get off the beaten track, take me. Good coffee, local food, jazz and live music.

And Stories! Bahhguhflabbets, I love a good tale. Spin me a yarn and I'm tickled. Theatre, street performance, pavement concerts, that kind of thing.

Music, Movies, and Books

Everything, anything: I've currently got a list growing from each person I meet and one day... one day I'll read them.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I hitchhiked solo overland from England to South Africa, aged 19-20.

I threw myself off Victoria Falls bridge attached to a glorified elastic band. Highly recommended.

Witnessing the kindness of people everywhere I've been. It's unbelievable.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach me the harmonica, and I'll likely marry you/steal you.

I love the weird obscurities and passions of people, and a long time ago started making a collection of the small things that make people happy. It's a long list, and I've learnt you guys are freaking weird, but I love it. Add to my collection?
