About Me


Find out for myself what this world is all about, and have a heap of fun doing it!


I'm Megan. Some people call me Megs, Meg, Megaroo or Goldie. I enjoy meeting people whose lives, stories and cultures are extremely foreign to me, but then discovering that, really, we're all the same. I love to travel, to meet the people, to discover their stories, to learn from them, to take photos filled with memories, to experience things in a completely new way, to grow. I like learning about other people's cultures and what else is going on around the world. I like being outdoors and I love to dance; the combination of the two makes me extremely happy but I am always up for a good dance at a club or in someone's living room. New things and people are very welcome in my life so bring yourself in all it's uniqueness and quirkiness.
On the serious side - I'm an engineer. I do flood studies of rural and urban towns to assess where high risk areas are. I work full time so weekends are best if you want some company!


Don't try to plan every minute of your life - you can't control everything, sometimes you have to just go with it because inevitably you'll be steered off course by something out of your control. But I think off-course is a good place to be

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surf and I host and I spread the word to those who I know will appreciate the existence of such a wonderful community


Surfed my way through parts of Switzerland, Holland, Poland, Czech Republic and Iceland and LOVED it. It 100% is the reason for having such an amazing experience in each place I stayed at. Now hosting back in Melbs and thus far enjoying returning the favour :)


Music - Anything with a good drumline to dance to. I love dancing (although not that great), live gigs are the best and Melbourne has A LOT
Sports - love the water, I'm a sailor at heart and can maybe take you out, but keen to give everything a shot. Love rollerblading/skiing/snowboarding/bushwalking whatever! as long as I'm getting out of the house
I also love photography but have a lot to learn, so if you can teach me something PLEASE DO!

Music, Movies, and Books

Books - Pride and Prejudice, Da Vinci Code, Harry Potter,
Movies - Shawshank Redemption, Love Actually
Music - way too many to list, but anything that i can dance to, anything that i can chill to, anything that makes me happy. To name a few to keep those who want names happy: Phoenix, Mumford and Sons, Florence and the Machine, Death Cab for Cutie, She & Him, Regina Spektor, Lisa Mitchell, Paul Dempsey, Bon Iver, Adele, Angus & Julia Stone, Dresden Dolls, The Postal Service

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Most amazing thing I've seen would have to be the Galapagos Islands - Truly remarkable, the only place where you'll find such a diverse selection of unique breeds of animals; and the Aurora Borealis in Norway - beautiful

Teach, Learn, Share

I have many things that I am partly accomplished in and very few that I have mastered. But I can confidently say that I am a very good sailor and willing to teach anyone who wants to learn.
I would love to learn the guitar
