About Me

"It would be a shame if you did not take this opportunity to revolutionize your life and move into an entirely new realm of experience ... don't settle down & sit in one place. Move around, be nomadic, make each day a new horizon." -Alexander Supertramp

Recently a healer said to me that "one day all of your lover's will leave you and your travels will be nothing more than old postcards... and then what will you have?". She was basically tell me that I need to be focusing more of my energy inward. And that's where I am at at the moment. I have recently moved house and have been spending a lot of time nesting. Nurturing myself. Keeping busy in the garden. Sewing. Doing odd jobs to pay the bills. And hopefully in time, I will gain enough mental and emotional space to achieve some clarity and be able to tap into my inner guide to seek the answers to which direction to move in next. Travel is still very much on my agenda but for now spending some time in Melbourne, grounding myself and establishing more of a sense of self beyond the context of the open road is my main focus.

I am vegan.

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.

PHILOSOPHY: Step out of your head and into your heart

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I was only thinking about how I found out about couch surfing the other day. I bumped into an old friend at a warehouse and mentioned wanting to travel to her. She told me about a guy she knew that used this website to travel across South America. My interest was instantly sparked. A profile was created and a new world opened up to me. I often wonder how different my life would be if I hadn't have bumped into her that day. The people I wouldn't have met and the beautiful friendships that wouldn't have blossomed. The adventures I wouldn't have gone on and journeys to places I wouldn't have known existed. Couch surfing has brought such joy into my life and change the path I was walking on. I am forever grateful. I truly believe couch surfing is the best way to explore a country and to really connect with a culture and it's people.

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.
