About Me


to be who i am in every situation


what you see is what you get. i`m open, honest and uncensored. not for the faint-hearted, but find that most people tend to appreciate my free spirit. travel, music and laughter are my medicine, as well as dancing, singing and meeting people from different cultures.
i wear a little too much lipstick for most people`s liking, but guarantee a permanent smile painted on my face at all times.


well-behaved women rarely make history

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i have made some wonderful friends through the couchsurfing site, although have so far only actually surfed once, in rio de janeiro.
it was a great experience, and certainly wont be my last.
