About Me

*remember...this is not a dating site please*


I'm planning a trip to Sweden mid April, any advice would be grand!


A bit about me...hmmm...I am a generally happy and friendly person, I enjoy surrounding my self with creative souls and anyone with a passion for life (pretty much everyone on this website right?) There are so many lives to live, I want to experience it all and learn from everyone in my path. I love roller skating!


Life is a playground, enjoy it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf and go to meetups.


I've been couchsurfing in Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, and's the best way to travel in my opinion! Such a fascinating experience being thrown into the middle of someones life, so much to learn and share.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Swimming in Pokhara, Nepal and watching the Himalayas appear as the clouds parted...breathtaking!

Hitch hiking on the back of an open air flour truck in Myanmar while the sun set and the stars began to shine. The combination of that feeling of complete freedom, the kindness of strangers, and the surrounding nature made it a stand out moment in my life.
