About Me


Living in Melbourne, exploring Italy in June


My name is Charlie, I have just turned 33 and am living in Melbourne where I make and design furniture. I am also active in the local music scene playing drums in a couple of bands. I regularly attend music events and enjoy festivals as well. This year I am heading to Italy to attend The Beaches Brew music festival in Ravenna and to explore some areas of the surrounding regions.


Live my life and have no regrets.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Currently i am just surfing couches, as i only joined up since traveling. When i am more settled i will enjoy hosting too.


New to couch surfing, introduced by other surfers but am really enjoying the experience of meeting local people and enjoying their way of life.
