About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To get to amsterdam! Whoop whoop! Oh, and to also get back. Iiiif possible.

ABOUT ME

I am a 21 yr old british girl and am currently living in the beautiful city of Granada, in the heart of Andalucia, Spain. I'm a Spanish and English lit student on my year abroad, studying Spanish in Granada Uni. Im quite tiny, but feels this goes far in helping my immersion within Spanish culture. I am travel-obsessed. Seriously, I have ryanair wrapped around my finger.

PHILOSOPHY

I think it is important to be open to life's diversity and to feel free to go down a path you've chosen for yourself, rather than one imposed on you by society. With that said, I believe hindsight is a wonderful and useless thing. I believe in travel and all the benefits of it. I believe in children and making a better world for them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Well, I am currently living in a part of Spain which I absolutely adore and very much enjoying showing off to whoever is willing to listen!

Granada is a city with a diverse culture; being the last region in Spain to be occupied by North Africa, Granada retains many aspects that refect its exotic background, the Alhambra being only one of them.

Ahem, it also has free tapas, yes FREEEE tapas. Enough said!

Interests

I enjoy alll sorts of things, but my main interests include: Reading (or rather i HAVE to say that because im a lit student), travelling, photography, dancing, cooking (and eating), languages, socialising and meeting new people, volunteering, relaxing, sunshine, trying new things...
