About Me


To make memories and friends in Africa & India!


Adventurous, kind, patient, spontaneous.


One life, live it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Between June-September I'm travelling from Cape Town-Nairobi-Mumbai-Delhi, with many stops inbetween. I hope to meet local Couchsurfers to have fun with, who can share with me their local knowledge and tips.

I can host people in Norwich, depending on schedule/ exams. Next year I will be living in Manchester and probably will have a couch free.


MUSIC - gigs, podcasts, festivals or just exchanging new tracks with friends. To give you an idea of my taste, some of the DJs and bands I saw recently: Hot Chip, Avicii, Swedish House Mafia (in Milton Keynes and Paris), Nicky Romero, Alesso, Redlight, Bombay Bicycle Club.

PHOTOGRAPHY - definitely one of my passions. You'll often find me climbing/ leaning/ crouching down looking for a new angle.

FOOD - eating it, cooking it, sharing food with friends, trying new things.

SPORT - I like keeping fit by going running and working out. I love to play tennis and recently started yoga classes- I really like it and would like to practice this when I'm in India in August.

TRAVELLING - absolutely love exploring new places. I am adventurous by nature and love immersing myself in a new place. The place I have been to recently I would most recommend must be Ha Long Bay in Vietnam. A breathtaking place to spend a few days.

ADVENTURES - last summer I cycled from Barcelona to Rome with my best friend. It was a spur of the moment thing- had an amazing time.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'll keep this broad.
MOVIES - thrillers, comedies and drama.

BOOKS - mainly text books are all I get to read at the moment! But I love reading all sorts of fiction.
