About Me


I am a Melbourne girl who loves to meet new people, eat new food, dance to new music and look at new stuff. I live in Melbourne but study in Adelaide and am hoping to drive all around Australia as part of my studies, living the dream I suppose! (quite literally a dream at the moment).

At home I love to get crafty, go out and socialise, explore the city, watch movies and cook delicious vegetarian feasts. I'm learning to make stained glass windows from my dad, crochet from my mum and play ukulele from a friend.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't used couch surfing in a while, but when I did it was great! I hosted in Melbourne and met people in Peru, Bolivia and Stuttgart.


Ive met a couple of really nice people on my journey in South America and learned a lot of interesting stuff from them.

In Washington DC I stayed at my 2nd cousin and she had a dog who attacked people who sneeze. I am allergic to cats and they also had 3 of those so it was a funny week.

We hosted Nora the German who gave us plenty of fun times and ended up staying for months in our spare room and became a lifelong friend.

Music, Movies, and Books

I usually have about three books next to my bed at any one time, I listen to all sorts of music, and I recently finished all the Wes Anderson movies. Bottle Rocket has a killer soundtrack!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Me and my friend are in the Guinness Book of World Records for being connected to 500 other people with interlinked MP3 players singing 'All you need is love' in Amsterdam on Valentine's Day 2005.

I can offer knitting, space origami and lentil soup.
