About Me


surviving a gap year in Oz!


19 year old who wants to live, learn and explore. I am constantly finding out new things about myself, and you will probably experience the same when getting to know me.

Currently living/working/partying in Australia and hopefully will be for a good few months more. Best self learning experience to date and recommend it to everyone who is thinking about it.

So far, I see myself as fairly open minded and easy going, though usually a bit bipolar about most things haha - love adventurous nights out and also quiet relaxing movie nights with a good friend. Feel best around laughter and tend to connect easily with people who surround me with it.

I'm awkward at times and can make little sense when I have a lot to talk about. But I reckon it's worth sticking through the mess that is my brain!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Traveling and surfing at the moment but will definitely look into hosting when I return back home.


My first couchsurfing trip was done summer of 2011 where i was hosted twice in Copenhagen and once for a longer stay in Budapest. Amazing trip and a way of traveling i've never experienced before. Also my first trip on my own which only that was very exciting!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

As I said, easily impressed, and cherish a lot of small, simple things shared/experienced with people I like and love.

Going to Australia for possibly a year have been the greatest decision of my life however. And enjoying all the ups and downs that comes with it!

Teach, Learn, Share

Extraordinarily, useful tongue skills including making a clover tongue and tying a cherry stem into a knot with it!...

I do know how to knit and crochet if you are more into that.
Also practicing my newly gained juggling skills and could teach you to get started on that.

But I'm in need of learning to cook simple, tasty meals from all over the world preferably! I'm easily impressed haha
