About Me


Hello hello,
I come to you with an open-mind, plenty of smiles and an easy-going, down-to-earth disposition!


Soft gaze

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new to the CouchSurfing community- but I am ready to embrace it with arms wide open :)



I've met some super people that friends have hosted through CouchSurfing- and I've been to the odd CouchSurfing get-togethers.


> The peculiarities of language
>Gradually discovering peoples idiosyncrasies
>Other people's music collections- and finding little gems
>Learning history from a local/the involved-refreshing change from the text book. gives it a human face...
>Food glorious food
> the "Arts": music, film, art-enriched with some knowledge of th e historical context
> I don't really have a 'science brain', however if you can explain concepts to me in simple terms, I love learning about new things from this fascinating and unfamiliar area. Some of the information out there is truly mind blowing.

Music, Movies, and Books

but what I have enjoyed in the past...

Kurt Vonnegut-JailBird, Slaughter House 5, Master and Margartia, currently finishing up with Siddhartha free ebook.

With music I'm a spotify shuffler-have been enjoying tracks from:
Wax Tailor- Sebastien Tellier-Sola Rosa- Russian Red- Ugly Duckling- Beirut- The War on Drugs- Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti- Toro y Moi- Broken Bells- Jamie XX- The Bats- The Vaccines
