About Me

I'm a student from Melbourne who adores nature and travel, and is currently living in Norway for studies. At home my life consists of uni, working in hospitality, and playing team sports including basketball and Australian football, if you haven't heard of it, google it! Best sport in the world. I've been a keen backpacker for many years now. I started my adventures by taking a gap year after high school and spending six months in South America. I've since spent time around New Zealand and am now enjoying my time exploring Europe!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My favourite part of travelling is meeting and connecting with new people, and couch surfing is another awesome opportunity to do so. I love that people are willing to open up their homes to strangers, I think it's a beautiful thing. These are exactly the kind of people I want to meet and chat with, and also the kind of person that I want to be.


I love taking long hikes into the mountains. Having hiked in the Andes, altitude doesn't scare me! I love wandering around new cities and taking in all the sights by foot. I like to try the local food wherever I go. Also, I really love Australian football! Google it, seriously.
