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.
