About Me

Hey all! I'm Bec, relocating to Dunedin, so hoping to find somewhere to stay for a few nights, safe and rad. I am hoping to finish my degree and make art. I embrace diversity, love dogs, creating through writing and painting, meeting interesting people, gardening. Trying to live more minimalist, sustainably and try new things this year. LGBTIQ friendly, sensitive to social justice, advocating for positive mental health, gluten free, don't mind vegetarian/ vegan/ paleo etc. I don't drink. Love ink. Like children!

Into alternative healing, reiki, crystals. Love travel, but also think the grass is green where you water it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet funky new people/ make friends/ expand horizons. I think there's so much to learn from different cultures and people I wouldn't normally cross paths with, otherwise. I spent a few months woofing in Eastern Australia a few years back and met some kind hearted souls so hoping to make some long lasting connections. I believe everyone we meet can teach us or learn from us, so however quick or lasting a person is, they are important!

Music, Movies, and Books

Acoustic folk, rock, blues and jazz, reggae. Hugely moved by music. Love Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, Ben Howard...

Favourite films are Pretty Woman and Edward Scissorhands, don't often watch tv.

I'm an avid reader, love poetry, Sylvia Plath, anything gothic so Edgar Allan Poe, biographies, romanticism. Also into spirituality, books about zen living.

I love art! It's a therapeutic process. Salvador Dali, Frida Kahlo, Pollock are some of my favourites :)

Teach, Learn, Share

Cook and share a meal together, swap travel stories, connect. Explore, I'd love to try surfing or have a hiking buddy, go ocean swimming, photography mission! Clothes swap, man, I'd be keen for that. I'm trying to not look at people so much, but really see them.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Laughter! Appreciation. Chat about feminism, politics, a listening ear, I seem to be good at creating light of situations. And I have counselling training ;) I can bring my art stuff and we can paint together! And I have books to offload, so gifts of literature and organic chocolate. I'll write you a poem for sharing your home and time!
