Treat others how you would like to be treated. Live in the moment. Work hard but always have fun!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We have hosted a person in Melbourne. We have now surfed in Amsterdam, Brussels, Hamburg, Prague, Vienna, Reykjavik. We also love to meet other CS members who can't host us but are happy to hang out in their city.

We are open minded, easy to get along with and will give anything a go.


We both love to play sport. I play hockey and Ash enjoys basketball. We are both learning slacklining. we would love to meet some other people who do this with!

Music and dance festivals are so much fun. You wouldn't be hard pressed to find us out for a dance possibly a drink or two and many laughs.
Meeting interesting people and experiencing new places.
