About Me


I am a 29 year old Kiwi from the South Island of New Zealand, so love being outside and wandering around in the mountains whenever I get a chance. That being said, as is often the case among my country-men, I also love to chat with friends over a drink or two.
I've been a travel-junkie from a young age when my parents shipped us off to Tonga, a tiny Pacific Island, for a couple of years. Since then I've lived in Italy, Sweden, the UK and Indonesia, passing my time either studying or working, and have been lucky enough to travel around a bit in between those spots.
I've just moved to Oldenburg with my fiancè and am now madly trying to learn German while hunting for a job. Looking forward to meeting new people in this lovely city, travelling around Germany and hopefully hosting some people once we get a little more settled!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sadly no real couchsurfing experience to date, but have heard enough fantastic stories from friends to think it sounds like something right up my street.


Travelling (unsurprisingly), socialising with friends, singing, dancing, meeting new people, learning languages, camping, nature, getting out and about outside, playing various sports socially... but sadly not very well.
