Join Couchsurfing to see Kim’s full profile. It’s free!
Too many endorphens are released in my body everyday so I want to spread the love and make everyone smile!
Hi!! I'm Kim and I'm a born and raised Melbournian! I'm half Slovak (and can speak it but I'm getting rusty so please talk to me if you can!). I'm a people person. I love meeting new people because I believe you can learn something from everyone... and I hope to meet you soon!
I'm a very driven person and am very passionate and enthusiastic about everything I do. People are often intrigued by the immense about of joy something small can give me! (This usually occurs when I arrive at work and am greeted my all my beautiful amazing friends who are just the best!!).
Caution: When I get excited, I get a huge adrenalin rush and could explode!!
I've been told I radiate a positive infectious energy that creates a room full of love! How sweet.
I'm a thrill seeker and a risk taker and will try anything once!

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have couch surfed in Canada, New Zealand, the USA and 6 countries in Europe since 2009.
From Nov 2011-Sep 2012 I have had the joy of working at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in Canada. My friend Hannes (originally met on couchsurfing) would come down from Edmonton to visit on numerous weekends and bring a couch surfing crew with him. It was my pleasure to have hosted everyone! My home is your home.

Teach, Learn, Share
Someone once told me to get out there and meet as many people as you can. That will increase your chances in meeting the right people that can bring you closer to your dream. Plus, I believe you can learn something from everyone.
