About Me

CURRENT MISSION

supporting my serious case of wanderlust

ABOUT ME

I am a compulsive traveler....I can't seem to get enough! I am originally from South Africa, but I've lived in the US of A for 15 years, Spain for 1 year, and Amsterdam for the last few ones. I took a gap year before going to college to travel, got stuck for a while in Amsterdam (thanks to love) and now that's where I'm hanging my hat for now.

PHILOSOPHY

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've surfed, hosted, and I go to our local meetups.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I surfed my first couch when I took a trip to CA for Coachella '09. I surfed a couple more couches in California, around Europe, and Southeast Asia. I've also hosted some couchsurfers. It's been one amazing experience after another.

Interests

globe trotting, health & fitness, learning languages, and beach bumming. A more recent interest has been photography. When you travel and see such beautiful and incredible things, you can't help but want to capture it on film.

I love scuba diving, a beautiful world is under water.
