About Me


pat more cats


Hi! My name is Fruzsi, pronounced froo-shee. I am a 24 year old painter currently living in Tokyo, but originally from Adelaide, South Australia.My days in Tokyo are now filled with writing, vegan/veg cooking, and bike riding. I teach English privately in local cafes and maintain my painting practice. I also love to read, paint and take analog photographs. My instagram is fruzsikenez. Much of my time is spent working on my online shop and artistic practice.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participate by spreading the good word about CS and its ability to make instant friends. I just love how sharing a meal can bring people closer.


In 2010 a friend and I visited Belgium and stayed with a super duper amazing family for three nights. They were so so lovely. They introduced us to the traditional Flemish game of sjoelbak and let us play with their three beautiful boys. I've surfed lots since and hope to have many more experience like this!

I also surfed in Montreal for a week with Katie B, who is not only a super duper host who can save your life in an emergency situation, but is also my soul sister, and champion singer/dancer :D

Then last week I surfed with Ichiro in Tokyo which was one of the best experiences ever.


I enjoy learning languages (japanese right now), cooking, baking bread, yoga, bushwalking, archery, camping, painting, massage & aromatherapy, traveling, tea, Roald Dahl books, playing classical piano, WOOFing, foreign films and documentaries, WOMADelaide music festival, longboarding, beach, speaking okka aussie slang, planning trips around the world, dancing, playing didgeridoo, making friends with cats around the world.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

sleeping in the desert
studying the stars
waking up in Indonesia and taking an enormous papaya fruit right off the tree (and eating it!)
riding bikes in Sweden
bushwalking near my home in the Adelaide Hills and seeing at least 3 koalas each time

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: Hmm.. I love to cook, especially for my friends and CS Hosts ;). I could also teach you funny linguistic things, like how to
pronounce the longest word in the Hungarian language, which is 'megkelkáposztásitottalanitottátok.' .. you know you wanna!Learn: The longest word in the languge YOU speak! And maybe some salsa dancing?
