About Me

ABOUT ME

I think my friends would describe me as approachable, friendly, honest, loyal, funny, a good listener, laid-back, and fun to be around!

PHILOSOPHY

Your worst day travelling is still better than a good day at the office!

We work to live, not live to work.

A stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet.

To move, to breathe, to fly, to float. To gain all while you give. To roam the roads of lands remote. To travel, is to live. [Hans Christian Andersen]

Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've surfed a few couches & met people for a drink/city exploring but as I'm currently travelling I haven't been able to host yet. I'm still interested in meeting fellow travellers & CouchSurfing users, making friends & experiencing different ways of living as well as learning about other places and cultures. Most of all - I'm here to have fun!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I'm glad to say that thus far all of my CouchSurfing experiences have been very positive ones. I've received such warm, welcoming hospitality & generosity. It's been great to meet different people from all around the world & share parts of our lives with each other. Who doesn't want friends from all corners of the Earth?

Interests

Meeting new people, socialising, reading, writing, photography, nature, wildlife, walking, hiking, scuba diving, swimming, cooking, food, drink, movies, television, music

Music, Movies & Books

I love watching films, & especially going to the cinema! I am a geek for classic Disney, but my favourite film/s would be the LotR trilogy. I like adventure/sci-fi,romcoms/chick flicks, & especially horror.
My music taste is quite varied. I love folk/acoustic/soul/blues music the most. Quite easy listening. However I am also into chart music - pop, electro, R&B, indie/rock, dance & so on!
I also love to read. The His Dark Materials trilogy, & also the Harry Potter books are my favourites. I also really like a book called The Life of Pi by Yann Martel, which I would highly recommend to any traveller. Recently, I also really enjoyed the Hunger Games trilogy.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Currently on a RTW trip, I'll have to update this when I've had a bit more time to reflect but honestly the whole experience has been pretty amazing through good & bad!
