About Me


Until Jan: To finally see Norway and Sweden!


I'm generally an extremely nice, open-minded and generally a fantastic cook. However, I do have my off days and resolve these with the evil stare: hence the pic (I was running v. late, AGAIN!!!): most of the time I'm smiling or worse still...cackling. I already apologise for this esp. if you are a shy person.


There is no growth without a reaction.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Though I can't host, because of where I live I'm more than happy to show you around or meet up with anyone in London.

I've also been spreading the word about the site.


So far...one, and that was indirectly. My flatmate was hosting a girl who had very random sleeping hours: does that count?


Anything and everything. At the moment I'm really into sports: rock-climbing, walking, running, horse-riding. Though I want to start rowing or sailing - which should I choose?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

During my minor periods of mania everything is amazing. I even get excited when it starts getting dark at 4PM, you'd think after all these years it wouldn't impress me anymore!
