About Me


live, love and learn


I am a little wandering wonderer.
Currently based in Melbourne (in the outer suburbs) as I am studying full time at Monash, but always seeking new adventures with travelers. There is always a new experience waiting to be shared :)
I live to learn and learn to live along the way. My traveling experience is about learning from experiences, meeting people and discovering wonders far and wide which help me grow.


I live a simple life, I prefer not to have too many unnecessary things which I do not need. I am not a very existential person, simple beautiful things in life make me smile.. like a blooming flower or random acts of kindness. I often smile at people in the street just to spread my happiness, because happiness is contagious!!
Also.. Take the stairs! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfing, hosting, spontaneous gatherings and sporadic adventures!


Couchsurfed through Europe and met lots of wonderful, free spirited open minded and open hearted people.


Ecological sustainability, spiritual growth, Yoga, Vegetarianism, Traveling..(!!), fire twirling, juggling, gymnastics, music, playing the flute, eating wild-berries, frolicking in the wilderness, shouting at the sky in city streets at night, star gazing, ULTIMATE FRISBEE! Freeganism, Dumpster diving (skipping), climbing, caving, pondering, being vague-an (vaguely vegan), consent, opening your mind, colours, kinesthesia, mindfulness, Buddhism, laughing, laughing and frolicking until your abs hurt and your weekly excercise is done.
Meeting like minded people, meeting people who challenge my view of the world (who is to say my views/understanding of the world is correct.. who decides the reality which is real anyway!!)

Music, Movies, and Books

Minilogue, Afro Celt Sound System, Vienna Teng, Tuung, Iron and Wine, The Barons of Tang, Faren Khan, Air, Portishead, the Beatles, ermmm sure I have missed lots!

An eclectic mix of music, anything which appeals to the rhythm of my soul.. Or which makes me get up and dance!!
