About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Wine & Photography

ABOUT ME

I am 26 years old and grew up in the south of New Zealand in Christchurch. I lived on a small farm for many years before moving north to live in Wellington where I studied Management and Marketing.
I graduated from university two years ago and have been saving to travel to France to study wine since then. I am an amatuer photographer and enjoy hiking and the outdoors.
My greatest love is wine and I intend to travel around France learning more about its origins and the 'old world'.

PHILOSOPHY

Try everything once except cocaine & heroin...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

While in New Zealand my flat was a registered CS host as we had a spare room and enjoyed meeting new people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

While back in New Zealand, my flatmates and I took in couchsurfers. We loved the experience of meeting new people from around the world, sharing travel stories and attempting to speak new languages.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have spent much time hiking and climbing in the mountains in NZ but the most memorable time was sleeping above the Meuler Glacier in a blizzard and waking up the next morning to 3 feet of new snow and views of Mount Cook.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a lot about wine and I love to share this knowledge when people are interested. I am an avid scholar and so love learning about anything new.
