About Me


to meet people from all walks of life and travel around the world :)

I like to think that I'm very down to earth and easy going, I'm pretty spontaneous and always up for trying new things. I'm a Nurse and absolutely love my job but quit because I want to travel around South America.

I love going out and partying, but will also just as happily stay in and play board games and cards all night. I have also been told I have a talent for falling asleep ridiculously fast. Yes, it's a talent.


I try to live life with no regrets, as I think that no matter what happens the best thing is to learn from life's experiences and move on. I also think laughter is one of life's best medicines... If everyone laughed every day the world would be a much happier place!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have had some great experiences couchsurfing and am continuously amazed at how awesome it is. I love the idea of meeting people and sharing cultures, ideas and experiences and am blown away at how lovely people can be!


I love the outdoors and being in nature. I'm also a bit of an adrenalin junkie - I love any sort of "extreme" activity, like skydiving or bungee jumping. I am very interested in learning about photography but am yet to do anything properly about this interest. I also enjoy watching stand up comedy and most sports. I play netball, which for those who don't know is basically basketball with much less running - it's more fun that it sounds I swear.

Music, Movies, and Books

There are too many to name, but I enjoy almost everything, as broad as that sounds. I particularly love 70's, 80's and 90's music... think I was born in the wrong decade. I'm also terrible with music/book/movie titles - So even if I had favorites I probably wouldn't remember their names

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Skydiving over the beach... twice!

Teach, Learn, Share

I don't have any particular talents... but can perhaps teach you some Croatian, or otherwise tell you about Australian culture (beware of the dropbears!). I can teach you some card games, and otherwise just share great conversations about anything and everything
