About Me


fitting at least 3 lifetimes into this one


Umm I am completely without direction. Just left Australia after a year and have landed in Buenos Aires, I plan to see as much as I can of South America before I bust all my funds on alcohol :). Attempting to learn spanish, so far the only successful phrase i have is no ablo espanol. As a person I'm very easy going, sometimes bordering on lazy but i manage to do everything i want to... just a little slower than average ha. I like laughing, having a drink but also talking about everything under the sun. I haven't tried couch surfing yet but it sounds like a good way to meet like-minded people and get a little inside knowledge on an area you're staying in.

Right now I'm just looking for somewhere to crash while I rinse money on spanish lessons as paying for both a hostel and the lessons is expensive!

In other news, I play guitar, love reading, music and art, and can usually find something in common with anyone. Just another ant trotting the globe!


that you never stop changing, developing and learning. perfection is boring, happiness is momentary and it is up to us to define our own moments. and i live for beer!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At the moment I just want to couch surf but hopefully in the future I will be able to offer my couch to other travellers... when I eventually become stationary!

Also happy to swap skills with people I'm staying with - cook dinners, clean or just provide entertainment around the house generally :D


Nada. I have only stayed in hostels so far. I'm looking forward to finding out what it's like.


Where to begin... guitars, martial arts, actual art, reading anything from classic lit to sci fi... obviously films, nothing girly, my taste is probably more in line with a boy's..

tv shows when i have the time aka buffy, dexter, anything david attenborough, black books, south park... and many more. also enjoy just walking, getting lost since i seem to do it so well... yada yada, you get the jist!

Music, Movies, and Books

american history x, alien, terminator, blood diamond, lord of the rings. music... could be anything. little rock, little folk, little drum and bass, guilty bit of pop - i like at least something from most genres. and led zeppelin are gods!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Watching sunrise at Angkor Wat in Cambodia. I swear I almost had a religious experience purely through what i saw. Absolutely beautiful!! Coolest little country in asia, and as of yet unruined by westerners.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach guitar, bit of electric and classical. Obviously teaching english is at my disposal! I can also draw and paint if anyone is interested in that, and i have taught both karate and taekwondo previously so wouldn't mind teaching or swapping skills with someone interested in a different martial art.
