About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to offer the same hospitality I'd love to get in a foreign country and make someone's visit a little easier.

ABOUT ME

Grew up in some beautiful places around WA & the NT and was also lucky enough to have some great family holidays. Thanks Mum and Dad. I moved to Perth from Kalgoorlie a couple of years ago, now I'm in Melbourne.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to start hosting people and show them a few things I've been lucky enough to have some locals show me since I moved here. If you can say one thing for Melbourne, it's that it's definitely not short of things to see and do. They have one of if not the best live music scene in Australia, full of coffee lovers, yum food, and a great mix of cultures.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have couchsurfed once (London) but hosted a few times now, and they have all been good experiences.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

snowboarding in Finland when the only slope open that day was the steepest one so the 3 of us, 2 who had never even SEEN snow before, had to learn pretty quickly... The bruises were impressive.

Teach, Learn, Share

So honestly, I'm terrible with direction and you may have to double check any advice I give you if you surf with me. But I can share with you some legit info about Melbourne and getting around- Sky Bushttp://www.skybus.com.au/skybus-service/Is a super awesome service from the airport to Southern Cross Station in the city. It leaves every ten minutes, tickets are about 15.00, you can book online but it's easy grabbing it after you stroll off the plane.Public Transport http://www.metlinkmelbourne.com.au/ In Victoria THEY LOVE TO FINE YOU. They don't care if you have a 30-kilo backpack on and look like you just got off a 20 hour flight. They will fine you. Because they have no souls. This includes trams. On-the-spot $220.00 fine is not fun. Bitches.Flinders Backpackershttp://www.flindersbackpackers.com.au/I stayed here when I first arrived- for its location it's one of the cheaper ones. Right in the city, by Flinders St train station and Federation Square, it's super convenient. Unless it's had some sort of magical bathroom refurbishment since March 2011, I wouldn't quite trust the pictures, but it's one of the better ones. Free breakfast!Free Tourist Shuttle Bushttp://www.thatsmelbourne.com.au/gettingaroundthecity/visitorassistance/pages/touristshuttle.aspxIt's a bit daggy but a nice drive around the city and most importantly, free. This website also has some good information about what's on.
