About Me


To live life!


Hey! Thanks for checking out my profile! A little about me, after many years of schooling I decided to take a short break and head to Thailand to teach English. I can not begin to tell you the doors this opportunity has opened up for me! I was fortunate to travel around the world for several years and couchsurf in over 10 countries. I am now living in Ireland and working towards obtaining my Masters in Speech and Language Therapy which is going well so far.

I consider myself an independent and adventurous person. I try to see and absorb as much as possible when I am travelling. My favourite part about travelling is getting away from the tourist attractions and meeting locals and learning about their culture. I enjoy couchsurfing and staying at hostels so that I can hear other peoples journeys. Thank you in advance to those who are kind enough to share their homes!


Live life to the fullest and don't let fear get in the way!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hard to choose just one thing. I would say it is a toss up between going to North Korea and hiking to Everest base camp. Everest base camp was definitely the hardest thing I have ever had to do both physically and mentally. I spent 18 days trekking and it was absolutely worth it! On the other hand North Korea was one of the most craziest things I have ever done. I spent 10 days "trying" to explore the unknown country. One memory that stands out is seeing the mass games with over 100,000 performers!

Teach, Learn, Share

I love the feedback I get from people from back home who have said I have inspired them to travel. I am always open to share what I liked and didn't like and help others plan their trip.
