About Me

I am Australian but currently attending university in Kuching, Malaysian Borneo. I have a huge apartment with lots of space, so it would be my pleasure to have you stay!

I like to travel around South East Asia on weekends, so if you have an amazing city that I must see while I'm here, please let me know! :)

I haven't used Couch Surfing before but enjoy hosting people I meet on my travels, so I thought I'd extend the invitation to the CS community.

I am fairly new to the city, so I will be just as excited as you to get out and explore!

About me:

Three years ago I decided I wanted something more from my life so I dropped everything and booked a one way ticket to India. I left behind my friends and family, my studies and my job in order to discover more about the world, and more about myself.

I love to immerse myself in new cultures, meet new people and give back to the global community. I also enjoy a gin and tonic on a balmy summers afternoon!

I'm a very laid back person and like to live stress free. Last minute plans are the best kind of plans in my opinion! I enjoy decent conversation and having a laugh, so if you can provide either then my door is open.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I believe that people are at the heart of any place, and I love to see the world from the perspective of others. Spending time with locals is, for me, the only meaningful way to learn about a culture.


I'm really outdoorsy so I pull on the hiking boots at every opportunity! Nothing beats a day on the trail.

Music, Movies, and Books

I can't get enough of books and I tend to lug around way too many. I enjoy novels, historical fiction, non-fiction, classics - anything really!
I've also recently jumped on the podcast train, so I love recommendations!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

How do you pick just one? The Sahara, the Taj Mahal, Dome of the Rock.. all amazing!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love to have a laugh and share stories, as well as indulge in discussions, debates and conversations.
I'm a pretty good cook and an expert dish washer/bathroom scrubber/floor mopper.
