Join Couchsurfing to see Michelle’s full profile. It’s free!
Enjoy and explore the world with the people I meet!
I want to have fun whilst searching to learn and discover more about the way the world works. I think it's incredible how much you can learn from the different ways people consider the worlds they live in!
I'm ridiculously easygoing. There really isn't much I won't put up with or smile about. I am happiest being around people, although I guess I'm sometimes kind of pensive...in a good contemplative-conversation-inducing way c:
I'd also like to think I'm fairly adventurous, and as a result I'll give anything a go at least once!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Hosting when I'm at home... sharing as much as I can when I'm abroad!
I signed up to the CS Project because I love more than anything to learn about other peoples' thoughts, ideas and views of the world.
And because I believe the best music and adventures are had with the locals...
So far I've met up with a few couchsurfers at home and couchsurfed a a fair bit myself...it's been great! It is inspiring to meet so many beautiful people! I so love having people round!

Music, Movies, and Books
Movies? I prefer films that catch my mind or smile... otherwise I don't have the attention span ha! Beasts of the Southern Wild, Café de Flore, La Via è Bella, The Grand Budapest Hotel are some favourites off the top of my head.
Music ?! I love music. I love music so much. All sorts of music... please don't put me in a category! I have a capricious assortment of music passions, and a bad memory so you'll probably have to sing, strum, souffler ...
Books? Just like watching movies, I don't get a chance to get into reading books to often. And just like listening to music, it depends on what I fancy at the time... I only like books I can learn from though!
I dig autobiographies, books on natural science (particularly anything to do with weather), dystopic fantasies, gothic dramas... Amongst my favourite authors sit Tim Winton, George Orwell, John Steinbeck, Margaret Atwood, John Irving, Roald Dahl and Aldous Huxley.
My impending reading list includes:
1. Immortality - Milan Kundera
2. Everything is Illuminated - Jonathon Safran Foer
3. The History of Love - Nicole Krauss (married to Jonathon Safran Foer)
4. Midnight's Children - Salman Rushdie
5. 100 years of solitude - Gabriel Garcia Marquez
6. The Wind Up Bird Chronicle - Haruki Murakami
7. American Gods - Neil Gaiman
8. The Latin trilogy by Louis de Bernieres - The War of Don Emmanuel's Nether Parts, Señor Vivo and the Coca Lord and The Troublesome Offspring of Cardinal Guzman
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you to surf,
I can make a decent coffee.
I can teach you to pull a decent (Australian) beer
Or learn some 'Aussie lingo'
I can teach you to read the clouds,
And forage for weird and wonderful wild food.
Or I can teach you to slowly fold a paper crane (I'm working on my emu!)
Or play the violoncello? and maybe a little piano...
And I know you will teach me a thing or two as well!
I'm keen to share and learn just about anything... and I love languages...j'ai besoin de practiquer mon français! Or maybe 日本語を話しますか。¿Habla usted español? Italiano? or a few jokes in English...
