About Me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've couchsurfed in Australia and through Europe, attended weekly meet-ups, festival groups and book clubs run through the CS community.


Camping with a bunch of other CSers at for a week in Sziget Festival 2013 in Budapest, which included *tent*surfing through CS. Had so many memorable experiences, including meeting a bunch of people that I'm still friends with three years later.

Informal couchsurfing experiences have been great too, especially through hitchhiking.

Music, Movies, and Books

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, Matt Corby, Tom Odell, Bonobo, Jamie MacDowell and Tom Thum, Four tet, Massive Attack

Books: My favourite author is Jeanette Winterson, especially her book 'The Passion'. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, especially Ursula Le Guin, Phillip K. Dick and William Gibson, and non-fiction.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hitchhiking the 740 km from Turin to Paris all in one day was pretty great!

Teach, Learn, Share

At this stage of my life I'm in avid learning mode! So if you have any practical skills, life wisdom or know-how to teach, I'm eager to soak it up.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can help with practising English, especially if you want to speak with precise grammar, pronunciation etc.

And most importantly, I can share my culture, my life journey so far, and my company.
