Explore the world
I'm friendly, outgoing and spontaneous. I love exploring new places, trying different food and meeting new people. I love summer and have always lived by the beach. However, I love snowboarding more than any other hobby or sport I've ever tried. I have been snowboarding in Australia and Japan and although I would love to go more, there are too many other places in the world I need to explore first. I believe that life isn't that serious and that people should be careful not to act out habits or rituals that turn them into a conditioned robot. Therefore, I seize new opportunities and embrace uncertainty.
Life is about growing and evolving spiritually. I think that we have a sixth sense which is our intuition which we should follow. I think there is a force which connects us all and we our thoughts can influence our reality similar to "The Secret", although I think the authors take it too far. I really like Eckhart Tolles "Power of Now" and Buddist Philosophy's by the Dalai Lama so my own personal philosophy has developed from reading books by them, psychology and my own personal experience. Russell Brand shares similar beliefs which surprised me. He is actually a very spiritual and interesting person.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
New to coach surfing so no experiences yet
Beach, surfing, snowboarding, camping, reading, baking, painting, watching docco's, festivals
Music, Movies, and Books
I like all different movies and music depending on mood. I can only read books if they are really well written or I get distracted easily. I like books that are different to the norm such as "perks of being a wall flower" by Stephen Chbosky which is written in letter format and also books that teach wisdom such as "eat, pray, love" by Elizabeth Gilbert. Harry Potter is of course possibly the best book series ever written!

Teach, Learn, Share
I have a lot of psychology knowledge? I tend to always be trying new things rather than mastering a particular talent, so I'm more often the student rather than the teacher.
