About Me


To share knowledge and give positive energy back to the world


I love to do new things and get involved in whats going on. Bubbly, friendly character. Shy of future derived questions. Love to dance and play. Happy to cook, clean and contribute to the day to day goings. Fairly organised. I don't mind a mess, but I'll probably tidy it up anyway. Really enjoy having real conversations, which I can uncover more, going deeper into the psychology of relationships...with ourselves, with others, with things around us.

I love food! Was born vegetarian, spent 12 months trying some meat....and then have retreated back to the clean, environmentally sound way of no meat.


Live life free of fear and with intent. Let go of existing expectations. Freedom of attachment. The body is a temple. Love and compassion.

"By daily endeavour, one discovers that life is simply a journey in levels of self".

I try to understand the other side of the story before making judgement. I try not to make judgement.
I'm can be indecisive - have been known to be easily persuaded

May all beings be happy!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed a lot and hosted a couple of times.
I've been to many meetings, activities, dinners and things. And also to find fellow travellers to join me on some of my up coming travels.

I'm interested in making lifetime friendships and I need more girls in my life!


My experience - very successful. During race week in Galway, mayhem. Was lucky enough to find a willing host, who opened his house to more than 3 of us single surfers. We all sprawled out on the lounge floor, bags and clothes everywhere. One of the best weeks in Galway, meet some awesome people, who hopefully will travel with in future, and still have existing friendships here now because of it. Perfect.


Travel, dance, music, creative activities, outdoor festivals, sewing, good food, laughing, singing, real conversation...., walking, driving, biking, baking, making, swimming, squash, skiing, camping, friends, learning, puzzles in the winter & mulled wine mmm. Learnt basic Turkish, now learning basic Bahasa Indonesian....I want to learn French & Mandarin!

I would really love the opportunity to try Rally Car Driving - or a Track racing car.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A month in Nepal. I would happily go back to tomorrow if I could. The most amazing travel experience so far.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm learning more about myself everyday. I love to share thoughts, and hear what others make of themselves.

Past few months I've realised how uneducated I am in the scheme of things...I plan to make some changes about that.

Good conversation, advice on the places I've visited, possible host in the place where I live....
