About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travelling, volunteering and trying to be thrifty

ABOUT ME

If I'm the sum of all my friends, then all my friends are some of me and if you're some way just like them then I am you to some degree.

I have been working in London as nanny for 6 months and now have left that to start travelling Berlin, Bosnia , Croatia, Mexico, Guatemala, Iceland and Thailand. I love music, reading, vegan cooking and philosophy/psychology.I love making art and clothes and pretty much anything you can DYI. I think it's all about understanding how things work and function to really get a good grasp on anything. I am passionate about animal rights and against any animal cruelty .

I can sleep anywhere and pretty much have.

PHILOSOPHY

Don't think about it , just do it

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Currently in Oaxaca, Mexico hanging at the beach and learning Spanish. Was meant to be volunteering for a month in the city but the roof literally caved in on the place so now I am of no assistance :(

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have couch surfed outside this website in South America and it was all good experiences. Also have had surfers stay at my flat through my flat mates page- we are all very welcoming.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I travelled through South America 2 years ago the whole journey was amazing - people and places. I really enjoy hiking through Northern Argentine and exploring the country side. When I reached the Caribbean we could just sleep on the beaches and camp by the ocean. It was such a wonderful, different experience . I really enjoyed getting away from the city. I will defiantly be back there some day .
