About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explore Australia

ABOUT ME

I am a Canadian, currently backpacking in Australia. I enjoy exploring both cities and nature. In the outdoors, I like backcountry skiing, hiking, biking, and photographing nature. When I'm in cities, I like visiting museums, eating local cuisine, and wandering around. Occasionally, I like going for a fun night out.

PHILOSOPHY

Traveling and meeting new people is a great way to learn and become better connected in the world that we live in.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am currently traveling in Australia, so I don't have a couch to share at the moment and will mostly be surfing. Nevertheless, I participate with CS by sharing my experiences and travel stories with those who are interested in listening. When I return home to Canada, I will be interested in hosting and helping show people around.

Interests

Skiing, basketball, hiking, biking, photography, understanding different cultural, museums, wandering around cities, trying local cuisine
