About Me


To absorb the languages of the world and become friends with the people who speak them.


I enjoy the simple things in life. Drinking wine with friends, cycling, gardening, knitting, reading, laughing. I love spending time with my best friend in the whole world, my husband. I like to sing, play guitar, capture beauty in any medium possible. Languages are my second love. I discovered my passion for them when I was living in Thailand and studying.
I am an outgoing person, and have been considered somewhat crazy at times, but only because I love having fun!


I totally believe in treating people the way you want to be treated.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have only just joined, but our huge, mint couch is up for use, as well as a newly 'cosy-fied' guest room. Seriously, it's so cosy that I think about staying in there sometimes!


Had a WONDERFUL time in Amsterdam with a beautiful person (love you Nienke!).
I have spent lots of time pre CS on people's couches, floors, backyards, and spare beds. Those are often people that I know or know by association, but I like the idea of staying with strangers who will become friends.


Cycling, eating good food, cooking good food, eating good food with good people, cooking good food for good people, drinking wine, drinking coffee, growing food and herbs, cooking my food and herbs, playing guitar, reading, knitting, hanging out with interesting people and learning as much as I can about other languages. FIXIES!!!!!!
