About Me


live every day like its my first and every night like its my last


I have been travelling since I was 15. Right now I live between London and Berlin, but am based in Berlin.

I travel a lot, most of the time. I love to show people around my cities, and love being shown the local sides of cities I visit. Am happy to share advice on where to go and what to do.

I love meeting people, hearing people's stories, seeing new places, and eating new food.

Travel is about people and food.

I currently live in Berlin, and am an academic in the UK, as well as some work in Croatia.. so I travel a lot still.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love meeting people and I go out a lot, so if you're in Berlin and want to meet up please ask. I do travel a lot, but if I'm there I'll invite you out to join in whatever I'm doing. I also enjoy showing people my neighbourhood in Berlin, which is the new cool part (south Neukolln).

I love to meet up with people when I'm travelling - meeting someone local is always better than being a tourist. I'm low maintenance, and am happy to tag along with whatever is going along. I don't need to be looked after, and don't make a mess. I like to cook at people's homes, or meet their friends, but can also go out on my own if you're busy.


am loving meeting people as i travel... had a great time in Kiev and St Petersburg with some lovely, hospitable people...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

archaeology in Israel, Portgual, France, and the UK; driving across the Crimea in a taxi, leaving Venice by boat at dawn, driving through the rainforest in Tobago... oh, sorry... one thing... ah well
