Serious case of the adventure and travel bug.

I am an ENFP who just loves to travel, see amazing places, meet incredible people and have fun all the time!

I have started to compile my experiences on oisinhoy.com check it out and let me know what you think, I'd love to hear your feedback :)

What better way to go about travelling than by staying with locals and residents of the city. Everyone has their own story and is unique. I give everybody a chance. The only time you should look down at someone is when you are helping them up.

My travel goal is to visit 50 countries by the age of 25! (52/50)

Speak 10 languages (3/10)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love humans. I believe in humans. We are all great people. I want to meet some incredible people and experience the kindness of fellow humans from all over our wonderful planet.

Having a stranger stay in your house and seeing them have a great time is such a wonderful experience and reminds us that we should share more with others.

I want you to experience this heartwarming act too. I will bring a smile to your face and share many stories and experiences with you. Let's have fun and chill out

Music, Movies, and Books

Movie: Arrival - first time I'd seen a film that left me questioning so many things we do as humans.
Music: Open to most types - loving alt-pop at the moment. Also acoustic, alternative, reggaeton, tropical house, rock, traditional Irish, D&B, and even some opera and classical from time to time!
Books: When I read I tend to go for non-fiction. Self-development and biographies would be my type
