About Me


live happily


After 2 years' travel I've had to reapproach Canberra with a new edge and a little more comprehension of how little a public service job matters. The travel bug remains and I'm now doing irrational things like going to Darwin for my friend's birthday weekend.

I have a new nephew who I love and a bunch of beautiful friends who keep getting married all around me. Dropping like flies :)

I like cats, people who smile a lot and food, lots of food.

I have been wwoofing in Germany, Italy and Portugal which I loved as I was able to get into some serious cow feeding, strawberry picking, tofu making and a mini wine harvest.

Love reading, movies, people and learning about all types of music, whether it's inuit throat music or edith piaf, or just bit of the old fave folky stuff.


If things go wrong, don't blame others

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


So far, I've managed to couch surf a few times, and since I've been travelling with no real home for the past year and a half, I've managed to show some couch surfers around London and meet up for drinks. But when I move home in October this year I'll be keen to get more involved from the hosting perspective.


I've couch surfed a few times now and absolutely love it and the friends I've made along the way.


Reading, swimming, travelling and chilling out with friends with a movie.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies...girly ones
Music..the Shins, Joni Mitchell, Fat Freddy's Drop, Florence and Mumford, Jose Gonazales and Buddy Holly. And lots of other things.

Books...silly to choose a favourite when there's so many I haven't read.
