"A single journey can change the course of a lifetime"...and I'm interested to see where I end up!
I'm an optimistic, fun loving, energetic wee sole from Scotland! I'm currently travelling around NZ after having a year in Australia and drifting through asia.
I love hiking, rock climbing, diving, surfing (or at least trying!) and am always up to try new weird and wonderful things! I really want to try wakeboarding, kite surfing and basically any other water sport...so if you're up for giving me a lesson give me a shout :) Also had a taste of mountaineering in New Zealand and now I'm hooked!
I've met SO many awesome, spiritual, MENTAL people through couchsurfing and am always looking to meet new groovy people and dive head first into different cultures and experience other ways of living....and new foods!
Happiness is only real when shared - hence why I'm always on the lookout for new friends!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've not done any hosting yet as I never have a fixed home....but I've surfed a lot in Oz and NZ - all of which have been amazing experiences and I've met so many lovely, crazy people who I still keep in touch with and will no doubt meet again somewhere on the dusty road
I like to surf when there's a bed/couch/floor/cupboard available and meet up with locals. Also fond of a cheeky CS picnic or meeting up for a few drinks and swapping stories with fellow travellers when passing through towns. Found some excellent hiking partners through here too!
MEETING NEW PEOPLE!

Drinking - I'm Scottish so love an occasional dram!
Hiking - getting lost in remote jungles is a favourite
Walking - with no particular aim

Singing - loudly. Especially when no-one else is around!
Climbing - mountains, rocks and trees ;)
