About Me


supporting my serious case of wanderlust


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 back to South Africa, a bit around the US, and Western Europe and now that's where I'm hanging my hat for now.


"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


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


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


globe trotting, health & fitness, learning languages, and beach bumming.
