About Me


stop wondering and just do it


hey all you out there! Hmm where to start...my name is Leah and I am 23 yrs old living Melbourne. I'm pretty easygoing, active, love eating food and trying new things. Most recently developing my beer palete due to a new job at a beer brewery/dining hall. Yum!

Have hosted a few couchsurfers, mainly from Europe, and am looking to experience surfing myself when I go to New York this June.

As well as traveling, I'm passionate about choreography and dance, as a maker and performer. I'm pretty much up for seeing any sort of performance, I also love seeing and discussing film, sculpture, performance art, books, and good old storytelling.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My housemates and I have hosted a number of people and have loved it! I haven't surfed yet, but am looking forward to it


I've hosted a few people from Germany, and from Austria. One couchsurfing couple (Jo and dennis) stayed with us for a couple of days, which turned into weeks and then they rented out one of the rooms for 2 months. They had been backpacking with a group of french guys around australia, who we got to know as well.

That's a couchsurfing experience I really like - you don't know what's going to happen, and the number of new, interesting people i got to know grew and grew.


I like:

- learning about new things - beekeeping and rockclimbing are my next tings!

- kitchen frisbee

- making pastry

- hiking

- i love going to gigs, especially hip hop and country! and swing dancing! big bands

- camping

- swimming

- drinking, dancing, chillin out by the fire, reading stories and making

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

seeing the Himalayas, I will never forget that!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you yoga and dance skillz! My friend span taught me how to weave so that too!

I also really like talking to people about what they are making, in any field. If you are painting or drawing, writing somethin, planning something...I'm good at being an outside eye, saying what I see.
