Explorations, adventure and strange food :)
I've always had itchy feet (and no, that's not a fungal infection). Spent a year travelling around Australia after uni, then moved to Africa for a couple of years with VSO. Turned consultant and travelled some more, on better pay. Returned to Rwanda in May 2014 to set up a consultancy company. Decided I'd rather write fiction. Lucky enough to have a fabulous house and happy to share what I've got.
Life is a series of choices. For every choice you make, you can always make another. Pick a direction - if you don't like it, go the other way.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
In the past I've hosted a number of people, some remain friends to this day. Always enjoy meeting new people and helping them find their feet in this wonderful country.
Always had a great time hosting people. In 2011 I couch surfed my way across Europe on a writing retreat to the Polish border. Really appreciated the hospitality.
Sign Languages (I'm fluent in British and Rwandan), horse riding, travel, food, books, reading and writing. Fact is often stranger than fiction.
- sign language
Music, Movies, and Books
Far too many to list, and they change daily :)
If I had to choose one book: The Seduction of Silence by Bem Le Hunte.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Stood next to a wild mountain gorilla. Survived an earthquake. Driven across Australia from Sydney to Perth. Stood in the centre of Armenia's Stone Henge (Karahunj)... hard to narrow it down.
