Give me adventure!
My name's Petina and I love to explore new places, new ideas and meet new open-minded people. Love to CREATE! Always up for an adventure.
Design and travel are my two favourite things in the world.
I currently work in marketing for an online handmade fashion company.
Languages really fascinate me and I am keen to learn French, Mandarin, Spanish and Arabic.
I believe in doing things with HEART and love meeting passionate, inspiring people that feel the same.
"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn.."
- Jack Kerouac
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Always happy to meet up with people in Melbourne and show them around the city. I know lots of great hidden laneway bars in the city and love going to galleries to check out some art.
Would love to host but haven't got the space to host at the moment.
Couchsurfed and met a lot of great people at CS events in NYC in 2010. I'm now back in NYC for christmas/ NYC 2012/ 2013 and looking forward to meeting and hanging out with more people here. :)
I love coffee, music, art, film, food, books, tattoos, street art, good design, music + design blogs, typography, cooking, exploring and travelling.

Teach, Learn, Share
Learn: anything that helps me be a better person. Society, languages, nature, history, film, design. Everything.
Share: If you're into design, music, food or fashion we could share + exchange our favourite artists, books, music and blogs. Interested in a tour of some cool Melbourne shops? let me know! Always interested in discovering new music. We could do a music playlist swap.
