About Me

Hey My Name is leif. Im 32 from Byron Bay in australia.
Its a really special region, dripping in incredible nature and rich in alternative culture. I decided to live here after exploring the world continuously for about 5 years. I really love to travel, and while exotic places and different lands are really fun, I think that it is the internal growth that occurs when you are outside of your comfort zone that keeps bringing me back for more.
I have been In 40 plus countries, and now have a beautiful home base from which to explore the world, which I like to open up to other like minded travellers to keep the vibes flowing!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Im interested in connecting deeply with the places I visit, and the best way to do this is by hanging with the people who live there. I am respectful, abundant, generous and have little expectations, open to the moment, as you must be when travelling.
I am really not very interested in hostels or hotels, as I find this sterilises the experience.

likewise I open my home to the right travellers to reciprocate the amazing generosity and hospitality that I have been shown around the world.


I have my own business working with medicinal plants and health products that I design, formulate and market myself. I play music -bass, percussion and sitar. I love nature, especially mountains and forests. I like festivals and am always interested in expanding my networks and meeting people in different areas of life. And I like to learn- always reading history, biology, philosophy etc.
