About Me

Hello! I'm Anna. I'm originally from Perth, Australia and have spent the last six years traveling and living in Scotland and New Zealand. I was recently in North America for their Summer and have just moved back to Wellington, NZ where I'm looking to return the kindness exhibited to me during my time there! :)

I play the ukulele, am learning the accordion and love listening to records, going to shows, dancing and jamming.
I'm vegan and love cooking with folk, sitting on porches outside and picnics.
I adore spending time in nature. Hiking, camping, swimming and exploring.
I'm an artist and love creating and consuming by whatever means.

I love meeting people and adore travelling.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want a free place to stay and to steal all your food...

When I first started travelling at 20, I discovered couchsurfing and it changed my life! Over the last six years I've slept on over 100 couches across the world. I've had once in a lifetime experiences, newfound friends, lifelong friends, amazing connections and warm memories. Couchsurfing taught me so much about trust, openness and respect.
