To have the best summer ever!
Born and raised in New Zealand, I am currently enrolled at the University of Otago in Dunedin (which, if you're not so familiar with NZ geography, is near the bottom). For 2011 I'm on exchange at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada. Right now I'm looking forward to a summer of travelling around eastern Canada and the US, and working at a summer camp in Maine.
Study what interests you. Become passionate about what you're learning. Sort out that minor detail of a career later.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Connected with Couch Surfers to get local advice about new places and share discussion about travel opportunities.
Hiking, rock climbing, seeing new places, being educated and inspired about the world, and watching sunrises/sunsets.
- rock climbing
