Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have just joined the Couch Surfing community and I am hoping to meet lots of great people on my way through the Middle East. I am sure I will repay the kindness I receive by opening my own home to fellow travellers when I return to Sydney.
I have none yet but I am hoping to CouchSurf through the Middle East:)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One of the most amazing things I have seen is Milford Sound (actually a fiord). The day I was there it was sunny with just enough clouds to make it beautifully mystic. Out of nowhere a pod of 300 dolphins started flipping out of the water and playing with our boat. It was truly amazing.
Teach, Learn, Share
I am currently learning about Social Entrepreneurship and Business and would be more than happy to share what I have learnt and the great resources I have found.
I have written a thesis on Indigenous Self-Determination and I have volunteered and worked in the Indigenous Sector in Australia for three years. Happy to share what I have learnt there.
