About Me


Put myself out of my comfort zone and come out the other end unscathed.


I'm an open friendly person that enjoys meeting new people and experiencing new cultures.
I'm very respectful of others beliefs and I always make every effort to "Do as the Romans do" so to speak, whilst present in other countries.


Treat others the way you would like to be treated yourself - first and foremost!!

Take the money and run! - There is an actual story behind this but the hidden meaning is to "take an opportunity" when it presents itself otherwise you could be too late.

If you're going to have regrets, regret doing! rather than not doing! This way you learn from your experiences.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm new here - but aim yo surf, host and meet new and exciting people. :-)


Complete beginner, go easy on me.


Well until very recently my hobbies were very limited to the monotonous slow drag of the London rat race; That is until I decided to pack it all in and apply for a 12 month working holiday visa in NZ.
Now I can pursue my hobbies of going on hikes, improving my triathlon fitness and invest sometime in my childhood interest of astronomy. I also enjoy a good book, preferably factual and I love hitting the dance floor regardless of the type of music that is playing. :-)
