About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find a new home

ABOUT ME

Where to start ? OK I'm a 34 year old guy from the inner suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. I am not too much of the party type these days, but I do like the company of friends and strangers alike. I enjoy seeing live music, going out to watch movies with friends and the odd flutter of poker at the casino.

I am very passionate about visiting Europe, Germany in particular, and plan on traveling there regularly and moving permanently one day. I am currently learning German in a hope I can get by throughout Germany without needing to speak English.

PHILOSOPHY

Live for the now and don't stress about the past or future.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have a couch available (see couch info for more detail). Alternatively I am keen on meeting up with any couch surfer visiting Melbourne for coffee, food and/or to show around. If wanting to check out some live bands - I'm the guy to seek! I drive and know of many great locations that tourists must visit.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I started hosting people from January 2010, and have since hosted a lot of surfers aswell as surfing some couches in Germany and Austria. I also enjoy going out to many of the CS events organised on the Melbourne group aswell as during my time in Germany & Austria.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

My favourite place in the world is along the Rhine. Absolutely beautiful. Staying at Kay's place near Bingen and doing car and boat trips around the Rhein was major highlights, as is the train line that runs from Koblenz to Mainz. Oktoberfest 2011 was ridiculously good fun :D

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to play poker to any level (although don't want to teach to those with an addictive personality). Also can exchange English for German.
