Join Couchsurfing to see Christine’s full profile. It’s free!
To live, love and travel the world.
I love to laugh, I love to dance and be spontaneous...go anywhere I've never been before. At the same time I'm very contemplative and love interesting, intelligent conversation.
I am a journalist but have another hat as a ballet teacher, which I'm not wearing at the moment.
Until recently I presented the Saturday Breakfast program on ABC radio in my region (Central Queensland) and was a part-time news reporter during the week. Now I work as senior reporter with CQ's largest newspaper.
I love travelling and having the freedom to go with the wind.
My children are adults and living their own lives so my life is mine again.
Hmm - that's big.
You have one life, go live it.
I believe in God and the bible, but never been that good at going to church every week. I love contemplating the great mysteries of life and the universe and the so many things we don't understand.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I first Couchsurfed in California early 2009 with my 3 teenage boys. Had a fantastic time and met some truly great people. We hosted quite a few coushsurfers in Victoria and it's been great fun.
I haven't been able to host for the past few years but have just reconnected with the Couchsurfing world.
Had a brilliant time couchsurfing in USA and although I thought there wouldn't be too many visitors to Corryong we had quite a few from Australia and around the world.
Classical ballet and contemporary dance.
Backgammon - I always play white.
Dogs, I have two. One is very, very big and a gentle kind hearted soul. The other thinks he's big.
Renovating my house.

Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: Loved The Dish, Educating Rita, The Departed, Kenny, Muriel's Wedding (bit of a fan of Aussie movies), The Usual Suspects, The Turning Point, The Posiedon Adventure (original), loved Shrek.
Music: Everything from classical and contemporary country to rock, blues, 80s, soul and ...... so much. Hate techno. Was once the world's biggest Kiss fan but that was a long time ago.
