About Me


Downshifting! www.lowimpact.org


The main things that people need to know about me are that I am open-minded and I try to live an ethical, cruelty-free, environmentally-friendly life!

I am currently 23, living in Hastings with my parents. I try and live by freegan principles. In March I became an aunt, which is a very very exciting experience!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Not enough yet :)


My biggest love is nature.

I enjoy learning and experiencing languages and cultures. I study German at university and I feel that learning new languages is like having keys to new places, or the secret to crack a code. I am still pretty shy when it comes to speaking in a foreign language though!

I am also interested in feminist thought, freeconomy, and FOOD.

Music, Movies & Books

I have a very eclectic taste and play the cello. I am currently listening to a lot of music by The Specials and

I love fantasy, as well as things set in the Middle Ages. I am not that interesting in gory or raunchy stuff, I prefer adventure and intrigue - more Robin Hobb than Game of Thrones!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Sitting above a quarry filled with water in Krákow, discussing how best to survive a nuclear zombie apocalypse and then ripping my trousers hunting for apples.

Looking for - and finding - beavers in Vienna!!!
