About Me


To be even more open minded! Learn more but not be too much of a generalist. Use my degree in Zoology for conservation !


Travelling experience:

Currently I'm on the road as I trek from Fremantle back to Hobart via Alice Springs, Melbourne and the Victorian coast line.

I have travelled largely across the state of Tasmania, Australia so if anybody needs advice I am welcome to answer questions!! I have also travelled to many places across Australia (Queensland, Western Australia, New South Wales)

In 2011 I travelled to Europe. I spent most of my time in Finland, England and Germany. I also travelled to the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Austria and other minor trips.

In July 2013 I spent three weeks in Japan alone which was a really great experience (with the assistance of couchsurfing!).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I first used couchsurfing when I went to Japan in 2013 and have hosted a couple in 2014 who ended up living with us. I haven't had space or have been inundated with Uni since to be able to host again but I will!


I am interested in nature and hiking, art and listening to music.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spending Christmas in Berlin with some friends.

Visiting the Hermitage in St. Petersberg as it was the most amazing building I have been in!

Hiking in Japan and here in Tasmania!

Teach, Learn, Share

I've just crossed the nullabor with a Canadian and the whole time I had my bird book in the front seat. I'm pretty happy talking and teaching people about Australia's fauna and flora and environmental issues.
