About Me


Currently living in Hamilton, New Zealand.


I'm Jonathan. I'm 30 keen to travel. Returned home from living in Germany in 2019 - planning to return one day - once covid goes away! Making the most of my time in my beautiful home country! I'm a Kiwi who likes being on the move, meeting people, going out, food, and having fun.

In 2014 I finished university and went backpacking 6months around Mexico, USA, Iceland, Europe, Morocco, and Bangkok. Back in Cambridge, NZ, hosting.

Asking that the New Zealand greeting, Morena, is included in messages to me is my way of filtering out people who have not taken time to read my couchsurfing profile.
