About Me


I am passionate about new experiences, and about doing things differently to everyone else. That's why I packed up my life in sunny South Africa, and moved to Poland, where I didn't know a soul, and started afresh just for the hell of it!


I live my life by doing the following:
I picture myself when I'm old and grey, talking to my grandkids about the adventures I had, and the life I lived. If I can see them being amazed and proud of their old gran, wishing that they could live a similar life, then I know that I made the right choices. I want to inspire others to take steps that are brave and scary!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have just signed up so still need to figure out what my options are here...!


Nothing yet, but looking forward to the adventure!


New exciting places, fascinating people who make me see the world differently, music, dancing, anything that makes me smile and laugh!

Music, Movies, and Books

Shawshank Redemption - best movie ever! Love Actually also a classic. I wish I could be more into movies, to know directors better, etc. But to be honest, I love movies and books for what they give to me. I love how I'm able to relax, switch off from the world, and just get lost in a good book or film. They are entertainment for me, they're there to make me happy, and that's exactly what they do!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The most amazing thing I witnessed was my dad's life long dream of owning a Harley Davidson come true. It's incredible to hear someone you love talk about something so adoringly for so many years, and then witness the moment when it actually becomes a reality.

Personally, most amazing thing I've done is move to Poland! It's such a different culture, and I didn't know anyone when I arrived. That was an amazing experience!

I'm an adventure seeker, so I've bungy jumped (highest in the world!), white water rafted, rap jumped, sky dived, etc.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach Pole dancing, although I don't think that's the type of knowledge which this aims to share!
