About Me


I've been living in the UK for over 20 years now so can say that Im British, although I was born in Ecuador, I am also Ecuadorian! I come from a big family and we are spread out over the world. I lived in Spain for a year, I've also lived in Manchester, Lancaster, Aylesbury, London, Wales and finally Bath.

I love travelling and I plan to do it for as long as I can!! Im a sociable person and love meeting new people & trying new things!!

Currently living/travelling in Western Australia!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have only surfed a few times but I love it! I love the idea of learning about different cultures and countries through meeting locals! And will love to do the same for others when I return to England (and have a house!).

I try to go to meetings wherever I am and I've finally hosted!!


Surfing,hosting, joining groups and meetings, and am looking forward to keep doing it in all the countries i visit!


Travel, meeting new people, making last minute decisions, sleeping, bannana and nutella! chocolate, pizza, scary movies that Im too scared to watch, learning to ride a bike at 27 and falling off A LOT! I love beaches, tan time, music, good books, and my nephews!!!
