Planning a trip to follow the 2013 Tour de France + Global Gathering 2013
26yo working full time in Auckland for an independent movie company (Madman Entertainment - check us out at www.madman.co.nz). Love movies to the point of obsession, and have only ever worked jobs related to the movie industry since leaving high school. So if you're a big movie fan I'm sure we'll get along!
That's not to say we won't if you're not though! I'm very open minded and warm to most people :)
Also big into my cycling, surfing, swimming & gaming (currently playing Fifa 13 and Assassins Creed).
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Looking to host and be hosted! I work full time so hosting would almost always be weekends only. Ideally i need a week or two notice.
Heading to Europe for 5 1/2 weeks next year and hoping some friendly Couch Surfers will take me in. At the moment I'm definitely going to Corsica, France, Italy, Germany with other countries to be added. Also going to Global Gathering 2013 in Stratford Upon Avon.
Have met many of the couch surfers my friend Rey (Crey014) has taken in - including Jonathan from Lyon, Adam from Adelaide and Kai from Germany. All of them were super friendly and interesting.
Hosted two Canadian girls in Feb 2013 - broke my CS virginity! They were both very friendly and was glad I met them.
Hosted Peter and Marie from Austria in April for three nights and became good friends. They are coming back to stay again at the end of their trip in May.
