About Me

CURRENT MISSION

"A single journey can change the course of a lifetime"...and I'm interested to see where I end up!

ABOUT ME

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!

PHILOSOPHY

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

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

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!

Interests

MEETING NEW PEOPLE! Music - listening, playing and learning new instruments Exploring new places - hot & cold Reading - for education & pleasure Drinking - I'm Scottish so love an occasional dram! Hiking - getting lost in remote jungles is a favourite Walking - with no particular aim Culture - immersing myself in others' Swimming - in seas, lochs, pools & puddles :) Singing - loudly. Especially when no-one else is around! Climbing - mountains, rocks and trees ;) Chasing waterfalls Surfing - couches and waves

Music, Movies & Books

BOOKS: Love reading some classics, although I still have a lot to get through! A friend recently introduced me to Bill Bryson, and I haven't looked back since.

MUSIC: A big eclectic mix including: The Doors, Yann Tiersen, Bob Marley, Jefferson Airplane (not a huge fan of the Starship era though), Bach (from my piano playing days), Johnny Cash, Devendra Banhart, Angus and Julia Stone, The Kinks, 2manydjs, Elizabeth Cotton, The Beatles, Fat Freddys Drop, Janis Joplin, MSTRKRFT, Django Reinhardt, Justice, The Coral, Bonobo, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Daft Punk (2007 best gig I've ever been to!), Stone Roses, Frank Fairfield, Laura Marling, Nina Simone, Credence Clearwater, Edward Sharpe, Porithead, The Amorphous Androgynous, Velvet Underground, Little Joy, Bob Dylan, Radiohead, The Band, Melanie Safka, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Otis Redding and The Balladeers - a friend's band who you should definitely check out!
