I come from a family of 7, I am used to and love to share with others and making the most of their company. I am Portuguese, French, Samoan and German. I've lived and worked in Sydney for 7 months. It's time I step out of my comfort and travel to a place where I know no one. I've got helping eyes and ways seem to notice and help people who need help - whether it be giving advice, giving them a ride, giving up my seat in the bus to an elder person.
Fun Fact: I really love the feeling you get from receiving and sending mail (old school style) (: I always make an effort to send a letter to my grandparents!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I made a friend in Sydney and shared with him my plans to travel to throughout Australia and New Zealand by myself and he had recommended that I take a look at couch surfing - I never knew this existed, so cool! Truth be told I want to spend my money on traveling throughout the places I travel, learn about the culture and sweet spots from the locals, and make friends that I one day hope to host in Hawaii. I'm leaving my current job in Sydney to travel and see more of Australia and the world.
I enjoy the outdoors so much! Back home (in Hawaii) I'd hike, fish, go to the beach, and enjoy any outdoor activity!
Favorite Quote - You lose sight of things.. and when you travel, everything balances out.

Music, Movies, and Books
I love almost all Adam Sandler movies. I love Jack Johnson and any local Hawaiian music - reminds me of home!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've traveled to Australia regardless of my parents objecting to the opportunity and proving to them that traveling is fun, full of learning and adventures and that it doesn't have to be seen as scary or dangerous.
