Trying my best not to grow up.
I have just moved back to Australia after 2 years living in Hamburg and Amsterdam with my boyfriend Moritz.
Currently back in Europe visiting my Moritz and testing my future duel citizenship. Living the life!! Chasing the summer, which is strange because I am the pastiest Aussie you will even meet.
You can make friends with salad.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
At the moment I am unable to host because i live too far from where any surfer would want to stay ... thought it is on the beach :-P.
I was a Moderator of the Melbourne group.
I organised a German Language meeting every second Wednesday in Melbourne, Recently revitalised by some new loving hosts.
I was a Co host of the Melbourne Tuesday Cs Zone meetings with Anthony, Julien and Jay and a fill in host when Jay and Anthony want some time off.
I helped Joe with the Quiz Night at The Joint bar in Melbourne with. We won once and came second twice so about $180 bucks of Free Beer was drank by surfers who attended!
Organised a EPIC clothes swap at my house.
Gave my almost my entire life's possessions to Surfers when I moved out of my house before leaving for Germany.
In November 2011 I was asked to be an Ambassador, it was a wonderful surprise and I loved being able to actively promote and encourage participation in our community.
While traveling in Munich in 2010 met two Canadians who spoke highly of couchsurfing. Initially I was horrified with the idea of sleeping in strangers houses like most people, however upon my return to Australia and the breakdown of two important friendships, I decided to give hosting a try in a bid to improve my German and make new contacts and friends around the world and in Melbourne.
Since then I have not looked back.
Through Couchsurfing I have met so many wonderful people some of who I count as good friends. Couchsurfing has helped me through a really hard time in life and still is. I love this crazy bunch of Nomads and all the pitfalls and amazing encounters it consists of. I am forever great full to the community and the wonderful people I have met most of who have added a little joy to my life and some of whom have taken a little piece of my heart back home with them.
