About Me


To travel, learn about other cultures, to learn Spanish and live life to the full!


I'm a writer and editor, currently living in London and travelling Spain this summer. I love the great outdoors, nature, reading, writing, rowing, climbing (although I'm a beginner!), hiking, meeting knew people, chilling with friends, dancing, having a few beers...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet new people along the way while travelling, and for the cultural exchange.


Getting out and meeting new people with tea or drinks, helping out with sustainability/farming/growing projects. Discovering new places and learning new skills. Practising Spanish :)
