About Me


to discover a new city and meet some interesting people along the way : )


I am an open, honest and warm person looking to make some new friends in a city I will be calling home for the next 3 months. I love to travel and discover new places, immerse myself in new experiences and cultures, seeing how others live their lives. I will be doing exactly this in a city just outside Barcelona, but would love to meet some like-minded people to explore and spend time with in my free time : )

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


currently looking to meet new people over coffee/a drink; surfing/hosting in the future!


I'm a newbie..


The special people in my life and spending time with them; travel and discovery of new places; philanthropy - a genuine interest in YOU and what makes you tick; driving and listening to music; looking through old photographs; keeping active - I just wish I did this more frequently!

Music, Movies, and Books

Currently reading The Help. We Need Talk About Kevin was very good, the film less so. The Other Hand - excellent read. Gone With The Wind - a classic; yet to read Scarlet.
I love anything and everything as far as music is concerned; too many to name here, but I'll give anything a go. Some favourites at the moment are: Angus and Julia Stone; Chicane; Minus the Bear; James Brown.
Again with movies, I'm easy to please, but Flight of the Navigator and E.T. are a couple of old school favourites.
