See the world: Meet new ppl, learn different cultures... Right now Australia will be my focus;)
I'm a little French Canadian (although bilingual-English/French)! Back in Canada, I was working in the emergency at the hospital and my life was quite uneventful-12hr shift work urk. Although I did the occasional little trip here and there it was time to leave (again) and continue my travels around the world and head to kanga land aka down under (with a stop to Europe prior... for a 3rd time lol).
Who I am: I'm a little traveler! Very passionate into learning different cultures, meeting new ppl, I absolutely looooooove new adventures. Ppl would describe me as a social butterfly but I also like my alone time and pretty down to earth.
As for now, I unfortunately do not have a couch available BUT I am willing to meet for a coffee or visit landmarks around the city. I moved from Brisbane a few months ago and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! Its cold but good! Weeow! Always up for a new adventure! I eventually would love to head up North into the rain forest hike and snorkel, dive ok and maybe party a little ;) I'd also like to finish the Great Ocean Road. Been camping there and its absolutely stunning! Even go back to Sydney and Adelaide! Would LOVE to hit up Alice Springs and Ayers Rock, Darwin and many many more! I do have friends around the country as well. Oh and Vineyards, anyone want to visit those I'm down for anything really! hahaha If you're looking for a travel buddy to explore the city, visit landmarks, fun times I'm the girl you want to contact!
My hobbies would consist of planning new trips (even weekend trips), camping when I can, working out, hiking, read, cooking, listen to music, meet up friends for coffees or drinks. Oh! And I love my occasional glass of red hihi or beer if I'm with the boys or in the presence of great nachos :P
My idea of traveling is backpacking!!!!!!
Look forward to hear from you :)
The world is at your feet!!!!
I sometimes hear people say, why don't you focus on your career, buy a house, buy a car, why don't you focus on 'important' things, don't you want kids?... just travel later when you're old (that's a popular one).... My philosophy is why wait to travel... I have air in my lungs, two legs, two eyes, two arms... who knows what will happen in 10, 15, 20 years... hell next year? You learn HEAPS when you travel, it pushes you to things you thought you'd never do in a million year! And guess what, you come back with great stories... Just do it!

Music, Movies, and Books
Oh boy... Music: I love all kinds of music! From country when I'm camping (only when I'm camping or road trips) to a nice dubstep festival or even Metal concert :P. I prefer house, dubstep, hip hop, electronica
Movies... I can't think of any names right now but I do like action, comedy, occasional romantic comedy, def not a horror :P
Books? I'm a big fan of lonely planets but an actual novel... Mmm The Price by Natalie Mclennan (very interesting lol)
