About Me


it's a secret mission. shhhh.


Language nerd, ESL tutor, arts background, writer. I love nature and outdoor activities - hiking, cycling, cycle touring, camping, etc.

I am from Sydney, Australia, where my partner currently resides. I/we have been in Europe for two years, and I'm currently exploring Turkey for awhile before heading back home.

I love to cook, share food, and learn about people's favourite cuisine - it's one of the best ways of bonding with anyone.

I can be a little quiet on first meeting you, but I warm up in time :)


Most problems can be solved by breathing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At the moment I am just looking to meet people to hang out with and share experiences in the places I visit. When I have a permanent home again, I'll think about hosting :)


I'm new here, that's why I don't have any friends and references! Many of my friends have had incredible experiences and met roommates, lovers, etc on this site.


Language, books, history, politics, gardening, permaculture, humans.

Music, Movies, and Books

At the moment I am travelling with The Complete Cosmicomics by Italo Calvino. Short stories are good for intermittent reading at bus stations, etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Cycling up and over the Gotthard alpine pass in Switzerland last summer, en route from Paris to Milan on the bike.
