About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be, and to be happy just being but also taking a little break from CS whilst i try to get settled back in the UK. Will be back soon.

ABOUT ME

I am crap at describing myself as I am a bit of a contradiction (but isn't that all women?). Here goes - I'm an energetic person, who has many interests and gets bored easily when I have nothing to do! But when I am lazy, I'm very lazy!

I love to travel and learn about other cultures,I like to try and scratch beneath the surface and see what I can find.

I prefer going to where the concept of tourist information has not yet been discovered and where you have to find out about bus times from the neighbour of the mother of the fruit seller whose brother works in the hotel or where nobody has an idea where the nearest airport isetc etc

PHILOSOPHY

Smile and enjoy. Live in the moment (very hard) Never assume anything.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Meeting other CSers for drinks, tea, walks with no specific destination, ice cream, laughing, picnics, dancing and most importantly enjoying Sundays together. I can cook - if you have the kitchen.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Just meeting amazing, lively, generous couch surfers in both New York and Spain, who are willing to share their time and friends with you, and help you forget what being lonely in a new country is. :)

Interests

Photography - i like mooching around Cities taking pics of anything that catches my eye.

Dancing - i know how to salsa (more or less) and now it is time for bollywood, zouk lambada, belly dancing, flamenco......

Hats

Shadow yoga

Randomness - just going with the flow and seeing what life throws at me. I have to plan a lot at work, and i enjoy this but it's nice to meet random people outside of that and have little adventures. I guess this is also a reason of why i like travelling too.

Food - eating and cooking it! Especially anything Asian.

Films - There is nothing better than sitting in a cinema far away from other people and watching a film on a grey, wet Saturday afternoon or curling up on the sofa with a cup of tea and a 3 hour bollywood DVD! I am so interesting!

Cups of tea - it's what my soul needs on a 3 times a day basis!

Pyjamas

Favourite sight: the pink sky of magic hour Favourite smell: olbas oil Favourite sound: the ocean hitting the shore Favourite taste: granny's curry Favourite feel! (sensation): water on the back of my head/neck

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Life is full of many amazing things - big and small, ordinary and extraordinary.

The most beautiful magic hour in Halong Bay, Vietnam. Ferral dogs stealing travellers sandals and leaving them in front of other shops in Thailand.
