About Me

PLEASE NOTE: I will not accept couch requests from people that clearly haven't read my profile. This includes copy and pasted messages. I receive multiple requests per day and I give preference to those who send thoughtful and personalised couch requests.

“The secret of adventure, then, is not to carefully seek it out but to travel in such a way that it finds you."
- Rolf Potts.

I am vegan.

I am queer.

I love all creatures great and small.

My spirit longs for a life in the woods.

I am at my truest and happiest when travelling.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I truly believe couch surfing is the best way to explore a country and to really connect with a culture and it's people. It opened me up to a world of possibility and adventure. So many things I have seen and experienced simply would not have been possible if it was not for this incredible community.

1. By hosting lovely folk
2. By sleeping on couches, floors, beds, in tents or vans of those who are kind enough to let me
3. By meeting up with travellers, both locally and international, to share stories, experiences and connections

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

While travelling in Canada I was lucky enough to spend one night lying on a rooftop watching the Northern Lights dance across the sky. I was staying out on an acreage in Alberta with the great aunt and uncle of a friend of mine. I scaled a satellite pole and managed a meter's leap across to the roof of their two story house. My friends great uncle, well into his 70's joined me. We were both like two kids, unable to contain our excitement. I still don't know how the two of us managed to get up there, must have been adrenaline. But the lights, the lights were truly one of the most beautiful things I have ever witnessed.

Teach, Learn, Share

Share my home if you need a roof, my food if your hungry, my blankets if you are cold, my umbrella if its raining, my stories if your bored.

I would like to learn a Bahasa Indonesia.

I can teach you how to hula hoop, how to play Chinese Checkers and how to live/travel on a shoe string in Melbourne.
