About Me


Saving for my next adventure


I've recently moved back to Hobart after many years away and am slowly settling back into life in this cold sleepy corner of the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm new to this website but have couch surfed my way around various bits of Australia and Asia through friends and family


I like sunsets, rooftops, treetops, libraries, markets, bookshops, rivers, mountains, beaches, islands, bicycles, meeting new people, cooking, yoga, reading, writing and adventuring
