About Me


ALL COUCH PHOTOS ARE OF MY PREVIOUS HOME.... New place is luxury appartment with indoor pool, spa and sauna. But I only have limited space... So you will have a comfortable camping mattress in small utility room.

International Ambassador. Scottish Australian love meeting people from different countries.

If you are looking for a true couch surfing experience, sharing, having fun, enjoying food and wine, and making new friends, you will enjoy my relaxing home, with amazing views of Story Bridge and Brisbane river. City cbd location. You may even find that I'm having one of my famous international parties perhaps Colombian or Italian or Argentinian. And of course there is my Christmas Orphans party for travellers, with amazing food, movies, photographer, music and Latin dancing.

If you are in a hurry and are simply looking for a place to sleep, then a hostel would suit you better.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Love meeting people. And enjoy surfers cooking in exchange for accommodation.
