About Me

MISSION

To revel in life, to embrace it and not take it too seriously. And to share it with wonderful people.
To make good non-microwaved porridge

ABOUT ME

Happy, sociable, laid-back. Love to meet new people and experience 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. I love animals (Especially my two dogs Tes and Perla)

I currently teach English in Phnom Penh, at the happiest school in the world for the French NGO Toutes a l'ecole.

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
