About Me

I like to try new things and to challenge myself but I can also be lazy and stay in bed all day. I just finished my university degree (I’m an English teacher) and am currently in Japan on a working holiday visa.


Live and let live.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Met some great people on cs and it makes traveling so much more fun! And you get to go to the cool bars :D


My biggest hobby is travelling and the outdoors. I've lived in Canada and the US and would like to add many more countries to that list. While traveling or at home I enjoy being outside, hiking, cliff jumping, climbing and eating good food!

Lastly I also read a lot and like to watch movies, lately a lot of Science Fiction.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Went to the North Cape in Norway with three friends in winter 2009/2010 with a city car in only 3 days (3500 km) best roadtrip ever!

Teach, Learn, Share

I love cooking and all kinds of crafty things. I can share how to make soap and would love to improve my pottery skills.
If you here in the winter we can also go skiing on some of the nearby mountains!
