About Me

Kia ora! I'm an easygoing pharmacy student from New Zealand currently living in Gothenburg, Sweden. I love to travel, and would love to knock as many countries off my bucket list as possible, one couch at a time. I love to cycle, play footy, be outdoors as much as possible, draw and I constantly have music blasting away in the background. I'll be in Gothenburg for the foreseeable future so I'd love to get in touch with people from around the world- either hosting or just cracking a cold one and having a good old chinwag.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Kyrgyzstan is easily the most impressive place I've been. Even the fermented horse milk grows on you after a while.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A good yarn or two, the world's most comfortable couch (it ain't called the Purple People Eater for nothing) and a sound knowledge of what shenanigans to get up to in Gothenburg.
