About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Network in Euorope, canada, america, grab life, grip it and rip it, experience as much as I can in my travels.

ABOUT ME

Hello world!

I'm an easy-going, laid-back Australian, pretty non-descript except for the shoulder-length dreadlocks, the colour of which varies, as do the rings, beads, clips, wool, and varius dingle dangles that decorate them. Oh, and they don't smell and are washed regularly (i know you were thinking it!)

Aaanyways I guess you could just look at the photos to realize all that. I'd write more about myself but I already filled out the fields below and that doesnt leave me with much!

PHILOSOPHY

The past few years since graduating I feel like I havent achieved anything, so I just want to break out of the daily grind and I'm hungry to just live life, get out there and experience things I normally wouldn't, different people, places, cultures. If lifes what you make it, I want to start making it happen. I'm hoping my travels in 2009 will help with abit of soulsearching, put things in perspective, decide what I want to do with my life, where I'm headed etc.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I only just joined CS, and im keen on meeting some people in other countries, as I plan a trip to Europ-Canada-America next year and would love to meet up with some people.

UPDATE:
CS seems pretty awesome, decided to donate for the cause and become a verified member in the process!

Interests

Books, sport, movies, PARTIES, clubs, PUBS, sightseeing, travel, girls, friends, drinking, exercise, b.s. conversations about nothing at all, conversations about anything important, beliefs,life, the world etc.

Ive played soccer for about 12 years with my local club, and while i dont follow any compeitions I'm always up for watching a game no matter whos playing, or any sport for that matter.

I did Tae-kwon-do for 8 years and achieved a black belt ranking, but to be honest I gave it up a few years ago so would be more than a little rusty. My KungFu is not strong.

Took up guitar last year, I teach myself though so its more of a hobby, I'm not very good but hey, practice practice, i'll gladly play it/sing for anyone as long as they are tone deaf like me.
