Join Couchsurfing to see Elle’s full profile.
Elle. 28-years-old. Love traveling. I also love that my profile has barely been updated over the past 9 years of being on this site. I just change my age and the hobbies a little from time to time!
Ultimately found out that every moment should be appreciated. I like saying 'yes' to as many opportunities as possible throughout my day.
My most recent travel to Lucknow, India to work for social enterprise Pollinate Energy. Currently back in Australia and am keen to meet up with travellers and locals.
I'm a fan of yoga, music (from instrumental hip-hop and funk rock to house to Hindi music), learning language, sustainability and resilience, travel, reading and socialising.
To say I love languages would probably be a massive understatement. Although I can only really speak German and a little Hindi and English, loads other languages and cultures fascinate me. Keen to meet up to practice!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
The whole concept of trusting strangers to let you into their lives is pretty cool.
Travelling, languages, philosophy, partying, yoga, deep conversations, meditation, cooking, photography, the environment, sleeping in, music festivals.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Being swarmed by little Indian kids in an Indian slum, all yelling 'Aunty, aunty!' and throwing their arms around me.
A party in Berlin in a falling down castle thingy with acrobats and an open mic and artwork everywhere.
Seeing Angela Merkel speak while hungover, wearing the same clothes from the night before.
