About Me

Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.


For the past few years I have found myself travelling to various countries, in the name of research of course!
I am a traveler at heart and take any opportunity I can to see new landscapes, meet new people and generally get out of my comfort zone. I tend to try and stay away from the Irish bars if you know what I mean.
Love music, although not musically talented apart from Bongos and drums. I absolutely love music festivals and take any opportunity I can to go.


For me, life is all about getting out of my comfort zone and challenging myself by experiencing new and exciting situations, people, and cultures.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


While travelling in New Zealand I stayed with various people in Queenstown and Wellington. I have also stayed with great people in Australia, who I am sure I will meet again. Great times!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
