About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see the world through it's people and cultures.

ABOUT ME

We are both easy going, friendly and enjoy a good laugh! I grew up in a small country town in Victoria, Australia so I am extremely curious about different cultures and new places. We are looking forward to experiencing places from a locals perspective as well as a tourists and would love to be shown around or even just pointed in the right direction!

We prefer a nice little bar with some live music rather than a raging nightclub. Although, there's always a time and a place!

PHILOSOPHY

You know all those things you've always wanted to do? You should go do them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm new to couch surfing, but I want to use it as an opportunity to meet new and interesting people and have them show me their cities/towns/villages!

When I return to Australia from my trip I hope to get a house with a spare bedroom so I can return the favour to all the CSers I stay with!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Like I mentioned above, I'm brand new to couch surfing. I hope to add more information to this part very soon!

Interests

Here in my regular day to day life I enjoy spending time with friends and family, film/television, video games and also dabble in a bit of (very amatuer!) photography here and there.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love film & television. Some of my favourite TV shows that come to mind are: Futurama, Arrested Development, True Blood, Game of Thrones - ah, the list goes on!

I also love reading and need to do more of it!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of my stand out moments while travelling was when I visited my boyfriends family in Bali. We all spent a day praying at various temples within Besakih and in the early evening we headed to the highest temple. Now I'm not religous and can hardly speak Indonesian so I didn't know what to expect at all. Once we got to the top there were hundreds of people kneeling and praying together. I had no idea what was happening but I found this a fantastic and beautiful experience to share with my boyfriend and his family and I'm grateful for the chance!

Another moment I have been awestruck would have been hot air ballooning over the Yarra Valley in Victoria, Australia which I just did recently!
