About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see as much as I can, wherever I am

ABOUT ME

I just moved to Australia to go to school, after working in and around Japan with my boyfriend for the past four years. I love to cook, sing karaoke, and go on lonnnng bike trips (when we have the holiday). I would say that I'm rather laid back, but I think my boyfriend takes the cake on that one.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We hosted in Japan, and I surfed when I first got to Australia...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have only surfed a little, but I have done my share of couch hopping in university (trading cooking skills for sheets and such). I've met some great people on my trips who have put me up in their homes. I hope that I can do the same for others.

Interests

I'm working on planting our scruffy backyard with some veggies and exploring Melbourne on my bike. I hope to get some camping in before the end of summer :) I love photography (esp. the old school kind with fixer), cooking anything, dancing, making up children's songs, learning languages, fixing my bike.

Music, Movies & Books

I've been reading a lot of books about nutrition and food production lately. um, top three other books? Shantaram, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Everything is Illuminated. I'm also a sucker for Harold and Maude, Moulin Rouge, and Pulp Fiction.

Music is an everything goes sort of route. Lots of Stars and Cat Empire lately.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Met a stranger on a train to Jakarta who took me into her house for a few days. I met the family, went to the mosque, road motor cycles, ate durian, and made friends with a group of people--despite knowing perhaps 20 Indonesian words.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: gardening, cooking, art, bicycle maintenance.
Learn: anything. I dabble a lot. If you happen to have worked with inner city food access and/or urban gardening...well.

Countries I've Visited

Cambodia, Germany, Indonesia, South Korea, Thailand, Viet Nam

Countries I've Lived In

Australia, India, Japan
