Join Couchsurfing to see Arlene’s full profile. It’s free!
see the world and find the best place to live :-)
At the moment I'm on my second WHV in Australia. I'm based in Melbourne and work in hospitality.
I am a very easy going, open, optimistic and friendly girl.
I enjoy being outside, be active and hang out with friends or meet new people. Game nights specially drinking games ;-) are a great opportunity to fill some boring evenings during the week.
Somehow I lost my passion for food. But I already started cooking new recipes. And I have this great idea of making my own bread, spread, pesto and crackers. And hopefully my passion will come back one day.
My Plan for the next years is to finish my time in Australia, save up a bit of money. Make my way around Asia, maybe find a volunteer position in teaching English. And one day I would love to volunteer on a turtle farm in Costa Rica.
Just be yourself! Have fun and please always have a smile on your face :-D
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I had a really great Party on New Year's Eve with CouchSurfers in Düsseldorf.
I met many nice people on the weekly CS meeting in Frankfurt and Wellington.
Most of the nights on our India trip we could stay with CS and it was just an amazing experience.
In New Zealand I met a few Couchsurfers. The weekly CS meeting was my first opportunity to make new friends.
swimming, hiking, yoga, travelling, good books, friends, camping, playing games, hacky sack, shopping, dancing, healthy lifestyle, poetry slams, piercings and tattoos, retro, exploring new cities, meeting new people
Projects for my next year are knit my own scarf and learn how to play a guitar.
