About Me


to have a blast travelling through the USA with my best friend


I am a fun loving, easy going Australian girl who is spending all of May '09 in the USA. I love music, arts and culture, literature, going out dancing & drinking, 80's nostalgia, asian food, good wine and good company. I am passionate, excitable, and really thrilled to be going to the USA for the first time.


There's nothing that can't be fixed by good music and a glass of gin.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've just joined the community, and am thinking about writing about my couch experiences for some magazines in Australia to promote the site. I'll also be offering up my couch in beautiful Sydney when I get back to Australia.


At this stage none...


Watching live music, going out dancing, making new friends, having a laugh...
