About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To search out interesting perspectives.

I have just completed a grad dip in Psychology, so i thought i would take a break to celebrate in europe. I purchased a second hand dutch bike with three gears, a plastic crate and flowers intertwined in the crate. I then cycled with the amazing generiosity of couch surfers and my leg muscles from amsterdam to Copenhagen, the two biggest bicycle friendly cities in the world, then down to Berlin. It was the most amazing adventure, now all future travels will need a bicycle. You see and experience so much more on a bicycle.

BEFORE REQUESTING
Look guys, I love couch surfing cause I like meeting like minded people from around the world. I enjoy talking about philosophy, politics both local and global, gender, environment and history. I am a bit of a Marxist and definitely a feminist! I want to experience a cultural exchange on these topics, this isn't likely to happen if your below 20 years old. If you want to prove me wrong, I would be delighted to receive your email.

If your interested in analytical conversations on any topic and want to see my perspective of Melbourne then request away.

I can only host one surfer at a time.

Also if you want me to accept your request, please find something we have in similar and included it in the email. Only saying we have travelling in common isn't suffent to send a couch request.

ABOUT ME

I like to think outside the box, I like to understand what's inside the box from outside the box and inside the box, I like to move the box around. I enjoy a challenge.

I guess I am a complicated mess who enjoys the open road. I like the immediacy that travelling has, it hits you. You need to be open and on your guard, friendly but not naive and engaged with the surrounding mayhem ,spells, smalls,sounds and tastes and then you will have left 'normality' behind and hopefully with that be able to put life into perspective.

The openness about travelers, drives me to the airport. Open to new ideas, people, experience and adventures.

PHILOSOPHY

Treat ever moment as if its your last, and as if the moment will last forever.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To have out of the ordinary conversations with people I would have otherwise never met.

Amazing project!

Interests

Exploring the human psyche - when I am not working on paying the rent. I am a big fan of reading in parks, adventures in parks, irony splashed with truth, isolating myself in my music while traversing Melbourne's' public transport system, eating raw vegetables and long meandering conversations about the human psyche, of course.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: there are so many i don't know where to start. i like independent and foreign movies. everything from science of sleep, Fire, eternal sunshine of a spotless mind, YES, look both ways, good bye lenin, into the wild, the edge of heaven.

TV shows: west wing, black books, the wire.

Books: to be honest i have had problems finishing books lately, my masters thesis has monopolised all of my time. now that i have finished, i can't wait to dive into all my unfinished books. i have the name of the rose, jump cuts, atomised, Wuthering heights and kant and the platypus, stacked next to my bed.

Some very interesting non fiction authorise that i have read lately include: Peter Gowan, Benjamin Cohen, Seabrooke, Triffin, Eichengreen. ok i will stop now before i bore you.

Music: eclectic, currently listening to florence and the machine, alt j, fiona apple, bob dylan, sound track from Amelie, Camile and MIA and Tracy Chapman. ooohhh also the Eagles. To be honest the music that i listen to changes with my mood. I like everything from jazz to country music, drum and base to classical, rape to r and b, soul and funk.
