About Me

Living right now in a situation where I can only host females. Thank you for your understanding.


To find unexplainable moments


I love life~
friendly, happy, outgoing free-spirit
vegetarian (animals are my friends and I don't like eating my friends)

I left New Zealand on 4th April 2013 with a one-way ticket to Croatia and now am riding the journey to wherever it takes me...

after all, home for me is the place next to my backpack where I take off my shoes and rest my head

Instead of travelling like a tourist, I prefer to be really inside the culture, more of a helping hand to anyone whose face I can bring a smile, I don't care about famous places, I don't mind if my shoes get dirty and as a general rule I am up for almost anything...


I live my life by the quote - 'the only thing you truly own is your story'

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


How, when, where I can =)


I have had THE most amazing experiences with couchsurfing!

- singing/ humming/ drum circles/ being around music
- giving and receiving massages
- fire (outdoors/indoors/in tipis)
- spinning poi (especially fire poi)
- spontaneous crazy adventures
- the outdoors/ nature/ beach/ forests/ grassy fields
- eating marmite!
- hitchhiking on a beautiful day or with someone very optimistic
- dancing with my eyes closed (for hours)
- giving and receiving unconditional love
- swimming in ridiculously cold water
- playing board games/yahtzee/ pool/ table tennis
- drinking smoothies (homemade the best)
- sleeping in the middle of the day
- having conversations with no words
- taking pictures of Tibetan prayer flags
- running around with bare feet
- volunteering, for peace and happiness
- bubbles/ tattoos/ edible weeds
- rolling around on the floor/ or amongst lots of fluffy things
