Doing something crazy significant as often as possible
I am a very easy going person who gets on with almost all types of people. Kiwis are relaxed people and we have an awesome accent!! When im travelling i like to see as much of the local cultures as possible and do something crazy there. A great way to start is to meet some of the other people living and travelling in a place. I work in the outdoors, last job was a zodiac driver/guide on a cruise ship going to Antarctica!
If you would like to know more about me look at my adventure travelling website www.wildkiwi.org
I take life as it comes and love new experience/challenges. Dont hold a grudge...let it go
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Ive done a lot of surfing and a bit of hosting the only time i had a chance. I try to meet other travellers in places so people don't go lonely. I try to inspire people around the world of possibilities they never knew existed.
I couch surfed across 20 countrys in Europe, ofen just going to couch surfing party's and meeting people just to hang out and explore city's. I met my girlfriend in Istanbul at a couch surfing party. Ive couch surfed in my home country in New Zealand, in Hawaii, Hosted in Alaska and surfed in Panama. One day i would like the chance to host more when i have a place to do so.
