About Me




Lived on both sides of the Indian Ocean; moved from Durban to Perth in 1996. Love my family, love my pets, love my friends, love trying new food, and OBVIOUSLY love traveling.



Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Half of the travel experience is experiencing new things and the other half is making new friends! and I find staying with a local is the best way to get the best out of the city. Then I can then pass on the pearls of wisdom I have learned from my host to my fellow travelers I meet along the way.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbing a Mayan temple at Coba was very fulfilling - once at the top the jungle just went forever. While in Egypt I went inside tombs and pyramids, and that was pretty surreal. One of my first travel experiences was ice skating on the 2nd level of the Eiffel Tower, which was super fun and romantic, and I will always remember that... I have also been blessed to go experience Burning Man; and I believe the values of BM are very connected to the values of Couch Surfing :)
