About Me


To travel the world!!!! I want to experience as many cultures as I can. A city is no good without the people who make it live!!


I'm from a small country town in Australia and now I'm out to see the world.
I am traveling with my girlfriend, her name is Sarah and she is from Singapore.
I really like seeing how different cultures work. Touristy things are ok, but they aren't what makes a city LIVE. SO i like to see the locals and what they do.
You can learn so much from other peoples lives.


I think life is all about giving out positive energy, a smile and a compliment take little effort and give so much to the people around you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to meet up with people and show them around if I can. Not usually in a position to offer a couch, I will if i can though.

I like to spread the good word whenever I can!


Officialy only a few surfs (Italyx2, Englandx2, Portugal, Romaniax2), however I think it says alot that all my surfing experiences have led me to catch up with those people again and again, Ive just not bothered with the 'official' web site process.
Never had any problems with anyone!!!!
