About Me


Peter Pan! To see as much of the world as I can before I have to grow up.


I am from Australia but will be traveling Europe for most of 2012. I am pretty easy going, can sleep almost anywhere, and am keen to meet local people and get off the tourist track.
After finishing 7 years of university and a couple of years of work, I decided to head overseas before I got too comfortable.


Rather regret something I did than something I didnt do!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am new to couch surfing, but not new to traveling as I have been in Europe since October 2011.


I have couchsurfed extensively, and had a lot of couchsurfers onn my own couch, but only joined couchsurfing recently. So far, the experience has been overwhelmingly positive.


Music, meeting people, movies.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Working at a womens shelter in Thailand, living with a local family and building facilities for women and their children. Working with the local workers to make a new building for the women to live in, as well as farming and cooking. Was an amazing experience.
