About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get reacquainted with Auckland.

ABOUT ME

I'm a kiwi girl who has just come back to NZ after four years living in Spain. I'm usually a little bit shy at first, but once a conversation gets rolling I lose my shyness. I love life, my friends, music, writing and meeting new people. What I love most about travelling is finding out what a country and city is all about. Not only the tourist attractions but the food, the people, the lifestyle, the culture, the music and anything else the locals may have to share.

If you want to find out more about me and my adventures, check out my blog: http://flyawaykiwi.com

PHILOSOPHY

Perhaps it's the writer in me, but I feel as though life is this big, neverending story where everyone and everything is interconnected and it all adds up to something...only I'm so small so I just can't quite see it yet...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've just moved into a place in Parnell so looking to get back into Couchsurfing events and meeting couchsurfers asap.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We have surfed in many countries in Europe and had some great experiences with some awesome couchsurfers. I've also met couchsurfers through language exchanges and groups and made some amazing friends!

Now that I'm back in NZ I hope to return the favour by showing around or hosting visitors from around the world.
