About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Currently living in York pursuing an MA in Contemporary Literature. Couchsurfing has been put on the backseat as I cannot really host at the minute.

ABOUT ME

Current Post-grad in North of England.
Used to be part of a couch surfing trio, then it was a duo.
Now am flying solo.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing
