About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to speak better Italian

ABOUT ME

I love Chilli!! I am culturally adventurous. I come from a mixed Italian and Sri Lankan background, but I was born and raised in Melbourne. I constantly suffer from travellers envy! I have spent 22 months travelling around the world. But I still have a hopeless sense of direction. I like to wander aimlessly...I suffer from the travel bug...and it is painful as I have finally putting two feet down and settling into my home town Melbourne! My brother calls me a banana....whatever that meansI miss my braids....

I'm afraid of bees

PHILOSOPHY

From my Fortune Cookie: "A clever person turns great troubles into little ones and little ones into none at all"

May all beings be happy...

Marmite and Promite are alright, but vegemite is the best!

I don't trust people that don't like olives!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I couch surfed around India, Sri Lanka and Italy. I loved to share and exchange experiences, cultures, food, laughs through Couchsurfing.

I intend on continuing my dream of traveling from Melbourne by hosting and getting more involved in the CS community here. I get travel envy, but I love hearing about other peoples adventures!

I like to go to CS events here in Melbourne to meet other travelers visiting my town, its good karma for all the hospitality i have received whilst traveling!

I've hosted a couple of big CS parties!
