Hi! Keep it Simple! I'm Leon. My partner Victoria (Tori) and I decided that life was too boring in our bubble and spontaneously decided to accept a position Tori was offered through her work to live in Wellington, New Zealand. Aware that it's just 'across the ditch', but it's a start of our dream to travel together and challenge ourselves...And all you need in life is to take that first step!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
My mates have an awesome setup back home on the Gold Coast, as a massive party house and close to university we'd have couchsurfers dropping in from time to time to share in the experience (mainly around festival season).
This is how i've learnt how awesome it is being able to have such a great resource for so many reasons! Whether needing a place to crash when desperate or meeting new people and learning about new cultures and ways of life or helping someone out in desperate times!... Why not couchsurf!
Water sports, football (rugby league and the real football), live sport, outdoor activities, law, new media, travel...
- outdoor activities
Music, Movies, and Books
- Dallas Green, City and Colour - he is the man! So hand-in-glove, goes without saying Alexisonfire! Recently read Anthony Keidis' biography, so starting a newfound love for the chili peppers. Anything and everything as long as it's got an awesome beat.
- Some of the best film I've seen lately is 'The Intouchables' and Sebastião Salgado's documentary 'The Salt of the Earth'. My favorite movie of all time is The Count of Monte Cristo (2004). I enjoy Quentin Tarantino films and interested in a variety of other documentaries.
- I enjoy the Stegg Larson series, and am looking forward to the release of the 4th book by his estate. I am currently reading Geoffrey Robertson's 'Crimes Against Humanity'. 'The Hobbit' was probably one of my favorite books as I enjoy the imagination and adventure that goes along with reading it. 'Musashi' is also another favorite. One of the most enjoyable books i've ever read woud probably be 'Memoirs of a Geisha'.
