About Me


Currently torn between Italy and Scotland...but wherever I am, I'm immersed in nature. I have been playing at being a farmer for the past 3 years....loving it.


I love life and I laugh a lot. I believe happiness is a choice and I choose it every step of the way. Meditation, Laughter Yoga and being in nature are essentials in my life. Meeting new people and sharing stories is one of my favourite things ever.


Live, love and laugh. Life is as simple as you make it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I moved to Italy in Jan 2015....couchsurfing is my favourite way to get to know new places and new people.


I was hosted and met some great people in my first couple of months. In the future I would love to host too. I am always up for meeting new people.


Love, laughter, soul music, reggae music, the sea, picnics, waterfalls, Studio Ghibli films, beer, going on adventures, cheese, food fights, love, laughter...

Music, Movies, and Books

Books - Simone de Beauvoir, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Haruki Murakami...
Films - Hayao Myasaki, Julio Medem, Pedro Almodovar...I also love watching old samurai films, scary Japanese films and Wong Kar Wai's films. Rarely am I in the mood for Hollywood trash, but when I am, I go all in! Dr Strangelove is a classic fave...I also love Agnes Jaoui's work.
Music - currently can't stop listening to Soja, a lot of African music, Idris Elba's Mi Mandela, some Portuguese saudade tracks, Nina Simone and Bon Iver...I will always, ALWAYS love the Stone Roses, Joy Division, The Cure, Leonard Cohen and Bob Marley. Always. x
