About Me


To use all my many years of work and travel experience to begin the challenge of my own business!


I guess it's quite tough to write a few sentences to sum oneself up in...but I suppose people who know me would say I am very enthusiastic, that I make the most out of any situation, that i'm warm and thoughtful and that I am fascinated by people and their thoughts.

I have been travelling since April 2011 and have passed through Spain, Central America and most recently South America. I have found travelling to be a humbling, exciting, tiring and wonderful experience. I have met some remarkable people along the way. And I don't know when I will stop travelling yet - I think that will become clearer over time.

I care deeply about my friends and family and miss them a lot - though I write to them a alot and really enjoying putting old-fashioned pen to paper to send them letters, as I believe everyone enjoys getting nice mail instead of just bills!

Some of my interests: I adore cooking and experimenting with food; I love dance including flamenco and also burlesque; I enjoy walking and getting lost in new areas and ending up in random cafes and bars and I also love second-hand clothes (and when I am at home I also make clothes).

I'm not sure what else to say, but I look forward to having interesting chats with who ever I meet through this great network!


To accept all those around you - but to challenge when you think something hurts or compromises another human being. Be strong with your beliefs.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have never couch surfed before but I have met so many people during my world travels that have loved it and one day, when I have my own house again, I will host for those who need a place to stay and friendly person to chat with - aswell as a glass of red wine :)
