About Me


Love Life, Live Life, Be Happy


A fun loving Australian guy who loves to travel and socialise.

I have always been a traveller, I'm not a tourist.
I spent 11 years hitch-hiking Australia, from 1976 at the age of 16 to 1987 when I went back to school. I had some great experiences.

Now I'm travelling a different way. although I did hitch-hike New Zealand for 3 months at the age of 44.

My hitch-hiking days are not over yet. I've just been way-laid in Hefei for the last 8 years. Sometimes you find a place in your travels that is really difficult to leave.


Love Life, Live Life, Be Happy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Just like to help fellow travellers live there experiences. Helping is sharing new and wonderful experiences.


I guess I couch surfed before it was known as a concept. Sort of spontanious couchsurfing because I never knew who I was going to meet or where I was going to end up. Often on the side of the road for the entire night hoping for a lift but many times you get a lift with someone and end up being hosted for a few days.


Anything that doesn't bore me. Most of all I love to socialise and meet new people.

One of my interests is being part of the team. Check it out, I'm Aussie Mike.

Music, Movies, and Books

I have over 2000 DVD's of every type of movie and documentaries.

I grew up with the Beatles, Stones, Meatloaf and developed an appreciation for ROCK & ROLL, especially live music and concerts.

When you visit, you can always leave a book behind, or take one with you.
