About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To get our tourism company working well help out with some volunteering.

ABOUT ME

Grew up 17kms from a very small town 1hr drive from the nearest supermarket. Moved to a much bigger town 800 PEOPLE! Worked in the beautiful town of Mallacoota in far east gippsland, went to university in Hobart, Tasmania and also a one semester in the bible belt of the US Springfield, Missouri. Met lots of mates from all round the world wanted to travel to visit them discovered couchsurfing.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is too short to wonder what if. I will continue to do things that throw me out of my comfort zone because I found in this way I can get the most out of all types of experiences. My grandfather is my biggest inspiration because when you are old and frail the stories of your younger days are all you are left with and I want the best damn stories I can find.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have a flat in the thriving metropolis of Gympie. Ok well thriving town. Ok completely dead town but I have a car and we can go exploring if you come to stay with me on the weekend visit some of the beautiful countryside around Gympie Rainbow Beach, Noosa and plenty of lovely rolling hills around too.
