About Me

Adventurous travel geek, constantly looking out for my next destination and cultural fix.

I'm traveling for two reasons mainly:

1: Culture Culture Culture. Art. Music. Theatre. I will travel to the other side of the world for a musical or theatrical event, but my main stomping ground is colourful Europe.

2: Adventure. Traveling to new exciting destinations and learning from other cultures than my own

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
