About Me

Hi there,

I joined couchsurfing last year for my 6 month travel around Ghana and Europe after taking a year long break from my studies. During that time I stayed with 11 amazing couchsurfing hosts, all of whom I had incredibly unique experiences! Now back in Melbourne studying again I’ve decided to give back and host people in my humble little unit in suburbia.

I’m a very busy currently studying medicine full time and working part time but in an ideal world with lots of free time I would spend it outdoors hiking, swimming, beaching and picnicking. I’ve lived in Melbourne for three years now and have done my fair share of traveling around Australia.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I hope that couchsurfing can provide the opportunity to learn about life in these countries in relation to culture and history

I have had many experiences with cultural exchange both formally through CS and other. And I love how varied and surprising they can be. It makes my travels so much more exciting being able to use this app and I hope to offer the same to other travellers with similar perspectives.
