Join Couchsurfing to see Dana’s full profile. It’s free!
I am a lover of life which at the moment includes spending time in nature, with people, and drinking fruit smoothies.
Just the hard facts :) My name is Dana. Im 27 years old. Born in Australia. Work as an Osteopath. I’ve been travelling for the past 11months where I’ve done a lot of things I never thought I could do.
I’m currently at a yoga retreat so I find it very hard to answer this question. I live my life because I can. It’s my hand in life that I am human, and was born in Australia and was brought up to be well rounded and interested in many things. I appreciate how blessed my life if and would like as much as possible to share my wealth…whether in joy, information or financially.
Ultimately I’m still figuring out who I am and although it’s challenging and scary at times I’m enjoying the process.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I haven’t yet! Total newbie :)
But I’m hoping to find some hosts in my last month of travel and then host people once I return to Melbourne
I only have unofficial couch surfing experiences where I sleep on peoples couches and invite people to sleep on mine. Most recent one was a japanese body builder I met on a plane trip from Adelaide to Melbourne. It was 10pm when we landed and he didn’t have a place to sleep so I offered him my couch. Really nice guy and if i ever need a personal trainer I now have a good contact!
playing the trumpet, reading (non fiction, yoga books, osteopathy texts), watching tv series (new girl at the moment), walking/running
Music, Movies, and Books
I am extremely late when it comes to seeing movies. I only just saw the 3 terminator movies. It’s got me thinking that maybe I have evolved enough to enjoy action movies. So then I saw the matrix and it just blew my mind!! Now I’m thinking Indiana Jones will be next. Previously I was a heavily into chic flicks and true stories.
I love non-fiction with adventure and also autobiographies. This past year i’ve read Steve Jobs biography, Nelson Mandela’s biography, The elephant whisperer, Wild.
Music is a tricky one because I will generally enjoy anything that isn’t trance or heavy metal. I do go slightly wild when hearing gypsy music and also love to hear live jazz
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I was cycling very fast down a hill in Cambodia and saw a baboon casually crossing the road. He stopped, so I stopped and we just had a moment of acknowledging one another. Then he continued on his path into the jungle.
Teach, Learn, Share
Osteopathy - treatments, philosophy, anatomy and physiology
Yoga - meditation, asanas
Cooking - well it’s raw cooking so it’s more like preparing.
Baking - breads and desserts
Would love to learn origami, or more yoga/meditation practises.
