About Me

Hi. South African teacher/entrepreneur. Taught English in South Korea for 6 years, travelled as much as I could, then returned to beautiful Cape Town and started a business.

I am a very silly person and travelling brings me intense joy. I cannot stand to travel with anyone who can find it within themselves to be in a bad mood for any reason whatsoever while travelling.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

While living in Korea, I was introduced to couchsurfing by my girlfriend, who had done it over a 100 times. I was able to host one person before I left Korea and since then I have not lived in a house/apartment that was able to host anyone, but a surfed a few couches and had wonderful experiences every time.

After 3 years of no travels, I am in Europe again, mainly visiting friends I have made over the years and working on my laptop for a few hours a day and sightseeing. I will be visiting a couple of cities where I do not know people so I might try couchsurfing again for the first time in a few years!
