About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To move into a couch surfing house & welcome adventurers to Sydney

ABOUT ME

Things I like ...
Building sandcastles
Taking a shower under a waterfall
Cooking a mean roast
Aimlessly wandering flea markets
Foreign supermarkets
Being mesmerized by the crackle of camp fires
Singing (can be somewhat out of tune sometimes, well most of the time)
Live music
Being anonymous in big cities, but having friends too
Watching kids open pressies they really like
Mum's awesome cuddles
Challenging my brain
Tim Tams (damn good aussie chocolate biscuits)
Home improvement shows ... Weird I know
A cracking coffee - Yum
Wondering if people are coming home or coming to visit when they arrive somewhere
Collecting colourful pieces of fabric - One day soon I will have a awesome patchwork cotton blanket for surfers to love!

I don't like...
Big animals (when in the same space) Admiring from afar is just fine! Don't know how I managed an African camping safari - But I did & loved it :D
Bruised bananas

PHILOSOPHY

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have met some avid CS fans lately so am keen to get involved. I have surfed in the States & Mexico & am now looking to reciprocate the generosity I have received in hosting others.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Life changing! I surfed in a few places in the States whilst road tripping from Newfoundland to Vancouver. I camped, stayed in hostels and hotels and then couch surfed some too. I've been truly enriched, have laughed lots and have some real friends to come and visit me now! Looking back at the epic trip, the highlights have been experiences I have enjoyed through couch surfing.

Interests

Food glorious food, hiking, kayaking, yoga, photography, picnics, making jewellery. Not adverse to the odd social outing & recently caught my first Barramundi !

Music, Movies & Books

Got to love a good tune. I appreciate loads of sounds. Tom Waites, Moby, She & Him, Angus & Julia Stone, Radiohead to name a few... Soul music seems to touch that emotive spot for me.

Books - Eat, Pray, Love ... Tuesdays with Morrie, The Kite Runner

Movies - Fried green tomatoes, One Week. Love world movies & comedies (anything that get you belly giggling).

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Being invited to dance in a wedding celebration in the streets of Rajasthan, India. Quad biking in the dunes of Namibia. Sailing around Croatia's stunning Islands.
Camel riding & camping out in the Sahara Desert. Learning to make cheese on a farm in Quebec. Playing cricket with my family in the sun on Christmas Day!

Teach, Learn, Share

I know multiple card games & can make a mean smoothie!

On a serious note, I'm humbled with those unexpected joys in life right now & look forward to sharing the journey.
