About Me


To host travelers who wish to stay 20 MINUTES NORTH OF CAIRNS at TRINITY BEACH. I plan to spend 3 months every year in a different country, living life to the full and giving a helping hand along the way ; )


"Carpe Diem"
After a long battle with cancer I am fit, healthy and loving every second of life. I surfed and backpacked through Asia in 2010 on my own (At my age).... My life's goal is to really live, travel for 3 months every year, learn about other countries, and cultures. I will also try to give a little something of myself along the way.
My house is 20 minutes from Cairns and 15 from the Airport by car. A 10 minute walk to the beach and 2 minute walk to public transport.


To live...

Too many to choose.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Swimming with dolphins in the wild just after sunrise at my beach. It was surreal, I was on a natural high for days.

Climbed the alps in Austria, I was on top of the world.
