Join Couchsurfing to see Susan’s full profile. It’s free!
I was born in Bangor, Wales, and spent my childhood playing on the edge of Snowdonia National Park. My mum shows and breeds Border Collies, so I was always busy walking and training dogs! In 2000 we moved to Oban, Scotland and I started High School. Was involved with lots through school and the community, most of which helped my degree choice, which I started in 2007. Done some travelling over the years and met some amazing people along the way. Now back in Bangor and landed my dream job at the Welsh Mountain Zoo!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I have had some great experiences both hosting and surfing in the UK and around Europe. I've also met with some couch surfing folks for drinks whilst on holidays, and made some great friends in the process!

I've met countless couchsurfers, hosts and travellers at various CS meetings in...
Stirling - Already knew a few folks from Uni. Great people!
Bilbao - A small city with a fantastic CS group from all walks of life!
Prague - KARAOKE!!! You guys ROCK!
Amsterdam - Awesome city, we met so many "new" nationalities!
Bangor - the coming and going of students along with a few regulars makes this a very diverse group.
Anything to do with Nature/ Wildlife!
Outdoor Education and Adventure!
Music, Movies, and Books
I will generally listen to any music and watch most film genres, although some will say my taste in films and music is awful!
I enjoy reading, but wouldn't say I have a preference for any particular style - chick lit, classics, biography, historic or anything with animals are good starters!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Too many to choose just one!
Stuck in a lightning storm on a hill whilst at camp, and again in Prague! (I like storms!)
Swimming in the Danube.
The adventure to Scotland
Actually seeing, and touching the features from my Geography text books - first in Wales, then in Swanage (me and Old Harry are now best friends!)
Scandinavian Summer - possibly my best summer yet!
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm pretty good at cooking good meals out of basic ingredients (having being a student for 4 years!)
I can also help with photography, although my skills are mostly down to luck, and not technical know-how!
If you have dogs, I can help with walking, feeding and training!
