About Me

Hi! I'm a 23 year old art history student soon to be graduated, with a passion for traveling and meeting people. I've been working as a barmaid in my hometown for 2 years. Though I'm not as extraverted as I'd like to be, if I catch a common interest I'm sure we'll get along! Those interests, as stated below, are mainly made up of music, games, directors I really like or any art form really. This is my first time backpacking alone and I would love to get to know different cultures and learn from locals along with meeting other backpackers throughout my journey! Don't hesitate messaging me about anything!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm on my very first backpacking journey alone! Therefore it might be a struggle to find places to stay briefly. I've couchsurfed in Paris, Toulouse and Vienna all being great experiences. I love exchanging knowledge about music and culture. Would love to meet with locals, chat, maybe get a few drinks, learn about the language, get tips on visiting nearby countrysides for hiking and get to know the city I'm staying in as a local! Hope I can be of good company :)

I'll start hosting from September on.
