Join Couchsurfing to see ARTIST.OF.VAGRANCY’s full profile. It’s free!
For those redirected here by Daniel Car, we did indeed host together for ages (until May 2015) and are hosting again now (From December 2015) so a lot of references are also his :) (in fact all of the "hosting" references are his aha). If Ii am travelling now you could try his profile, we don't always move around together.
* FULLY COUCHED UNTIL MID-FEB K THANKS*
We are hosting in a big old house that was built in the wake of WW2, so it's ant-infested, lined with fake brick, and falling apart. Welcome.
Please read the "Couch" section. We will know if you haven't !
We can't always show you around the city - sometimes we're too busy, sometimes we're very social, and other times we will literally just play Backgammon and drink tea all day. You need to be able to entertain yourself ;)
We have NO INTERNET.
We have a crazy overgrown garden, with a dead tree, and bamboo, and succulents, and zucchini, and a couch.
I will be studying Global Studies and Science this year; Daniel makes coffee for a living.
Get ready to talk about Chinese, Melbourne wanky hipster food culture, and environmental obligation.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm a part of Couchsurfing because sleeping is essentially free, and we have the space to let people crash. We love meeting new people, making new friends, and learning about other cultures and languages in small and insignificant ways, like how much coffee some people can drink. Staying in Melbourne is damn expensive, so we are happy to ease the load for the friendliest of road-wary travelers.
The Couchsurfing community is extremely diverse, but a lot of "true" couchsurfers understand the sense of interconnections and friendliness that comes with vagabond travelling. Most people we've had stay with us end up giving us really amazing, funny memories, and we've made a lot of good friends too. You can be old friends with a Couchsurfer in one day.
I'm interested in anything that interests you.
Some of my goals:
- Build things out of salvaged materials, but especially, one day, a HOUSE.
- Busk the streets of Melbourne with my trusty, travel-wary viola, or my enormous cello.
- Live in Slovenia with Daniel
- Live in Thailand teaching English or Chinese and raising a child
- Teach Chinese in rural Victoria
- Explore the forests, beaches, watering holes and bakeries of Victoria.
- Work in a mad sourdough bakery making bread all day
- Get through uni as a mature-age student

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
You do amazing things every day. Waking up in the morning, for instance, and laying eyes on the sun. Waking up in the middle of the night in the light of the full moon gazing down at you, or illuminating an entire valley of mountains in white. Swimming in a dark ocean, naked, unable to see but able to feel with a striking clarity. Climbing a waterfall rock by rock in bare feet. Watching anime for hours with my best friend, eating chocolate cake and sitting in my underwear in the sweltering Australian summer heat. Amazing.
