About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To travel, learn, grow, meet people.

ABOUT ME

I grew up in a sort of country town, rural Western Australia. The thought of travelling didn't even cross my mind until about four years ago,when I went to New Zealand, East Australia and worked in a ski resort in the one trip - now I am addicted. I did my first solo travel, going over to the other side of the world for exchange in Canada, which was an amazing experience! I think I am a pretty friendly, outgoing sort of person. I love trying challenging new things, especially physically, like rock climbing, paragliding, snowbording, etc. Recently I have been longing for mountain climbing and roller coasters. I really enjoy having a laugh, and just being my happy, silly self.

PHILOSOPHY

Live to be happy. If you're happy, everything is good. =)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have couchsurfed in New York and Buffalo, NY, in the states and Toronto in Canada. It was an amazing experience and something I want to do more of. I have also used the groups to meet up with people in cities where I don't know anyone.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I was just amazed at the generosity of everyone I couchsurfed with, and i felt inspired to think that there is actually an abundance of 'good' people in the world, if you know where to find them!

Interests

TRAVEL! Fitness and health is my way of life. Also surfing, snowboarding, rock climbing/bouldering, hanging out with friends...reading, writing, painting, drawing. I long to be musically talented, so I try to play my ukulele.

Music, Movies & Books

Almost all books. Though I prefer fiction. crime, drama, comedy, romance, action. Anything goes, books and films.
I love easy listening, blues and roots music, but can't resist a bit of dance music from time to time.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I am constantly amazed by the human body and brain, and the amazing things they do while we sit back and don't even notice. Perhaps why I enjoy studying them!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you lots of interesting facts and tips about bodies and also about how to use them effectively when you are exercising. or injured. I want to learn French!! I can also teach people about the ways of cooking fresh and gluten and dairy free :)
