About Me

I'm a wellness/travel journalist in NZ on a 12-month work/holiday visa (aren't we all?). I want to see all the things!

I'm tramping and moutain biking all over both islands - and writing about it. Here's my landing page; stalk up a storm: http://about.me/emilyahill

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love any chance to share, grow, and collaborate. Please contact me to grab a coffee, a drink, or take a stroll around an Atlanta neighborhood; meeting new minds, exchanging experiences, and sharing laughs makes me the happiest.

Plus, I am constantly searching for people who can give me insight into my current city search, so let's talk!

keep a journal.
like to skip the small talk.
change my hairstyle often.
love boardgames.
am a feminist.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I learned to bake bread in a French boulangerie. I was taught by a fourth-generation baker. We would get to eat the croissants that were too ugly to sell in the window :) Waking up at 3:30 am has never been so rewarding.
