About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To make good porridge NOT in a microwave

ABOUT ME

Happy, sociable and laid-back. I love meeting new people and experiencing new things, so CouchSurfing is the perfect community for me. I'm very active and like to spend my time outdoors, whether it be playing some sort of sport or just wandering around aimlessly.

After studying languages in Cardiff, I now teach English in Valencia. Although someday I'd like to just drop everything to go and save Gorillas in the wild. Or something along those lines...

PHILOSOPHY

My 'philosophy' tends to change every few days and I can't be bothered to update my profile that often.

"We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have."
- Frederik Keonig

"El que quiere en esta vida todas las cosas a su gusto tendrá muchos disgustos en la vida"
- Francisco de Quevedo
