About Me

Hi, my name is Kate and I'm travelling the world for a year with my partner Naomi. I'm Australian, Naomi is English and we have been living in Australia the last two years, including Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

We have recently quit our jobs as an engineer and a vet to travel but we hope to open a gin distillery after our travels! Looking forward to meeting lots of people around the world from Central America, South America and Europe.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am on couchsurfing to meet lots of awesome locals and experience the local culture of all the places I visit (and brush up on my spanish!)


Love eating and cooking food, going to cafes, restaurants and watching Masterchef; expanding my spirit and beer knowledge and doing research of the local gin, whisky, rum, beer available in all of the places I travel to; travel photography and attempting to learn Spanish for my year of travelling.
