About Me


I've always been passionate about travelling and meeting people and learning from them as I get to learn about new cultures. Even when I'm not travelling I always try to find ways of connecting with people from other lands!

This year I set out to travel the world since the past 5 years I've spent getting my naturopathic nutrition diploma and the pandemic forcing us to stay in one place! So far I've been to Asia for first time (Phillipines, Korea and Japan) and then onto LA and west coast of US including San Francisco. I don't want to stop there so have accepted a job working on a cruise ship starting this summer...

I'm also an interpreter and have taught English in various countries some time ago. I always tend to choose careers which allow me to travel even more. Why stop now?!

I've been living in a small town called Perth twice now in past 5 years which is just by Edinburgh and Glasgow and Highlands ! It's really easy to get to these places and I can host up to 2 people if I do happen to be spending more time at home! I love cooking and food so maybe u could cook something from your country and share it with me and teach me the recipe! Sorry no meat whatsoever, thanks :)


Carpe diem. Live life to the full. Enjoy every day as if it were your last. Do something everyday that scares you. Live, love, share, smile and laugh. Never give up. Be thankful. Cherish those close to you.
