About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to keep going

ABOUT ME

I'm 25, from the UK and have taken a break from the London Underground for a year or so. I've been on my travels since the end of march and have taken in some of South east Asia and New Zealand. At the moment I'm in Melbourne, working in a crazy cool cafe called Retro. I will be off to the West coast at the end of the month to enjoy some sun and help out a couple of woofing hosts. I am a happy, open and kind person who enjoys the outdoors and also the bustle of a big city. I'm very active and generally enjoy anything I have a go at!

PHILOSOPHY

I am a firm believer in karma- what goes around comes around.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I haven't had a any couch surfing experiences to date, but after having lived abroad a few times and being blown away by the hospitality of friends and strangers, I wanted to get involved too.

Interests

Cycling, walking, swimming, reading and seeing new and random places.
Food and wine- 2 of life's greatest pleasures.
The outdoors, the environment and trying to do my bit.
