Join Couchsurfing to see Monique’s full profile. It’s free!
Live life to the full and expand my mind through the versatile things I experience. I have already learnt so much about myself and want to grow on this.
I am an honest person who enjoys the simple things in life. I love pulling silly faces, making funny sounds and having a bit of a giggle. I also enjoy the smell after it rains, the feeling of walking barefoot through water, and the moments where the sun appears when you least expect it to. I am very open minded and am always down for a good conversation and experiencing new things. I am a vegan and enjoy cooking vegan . I like to share experiences with people and enjoy moments of unity and total respect. I love nature and I love feeling free! Life is too short not to give it all you have.
Everything that has ever happened to you has led to where you are now. What is happening to you now is leading you to where you need to go. Have total faith in the universe and you will never be disappointed.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I was travelling and after having most of my funds stolen I was forced to look for free alternatives instead of hostels etc so I could continue through Europe. I have couch surfed informally in the past after talking to people, making new friends etc. But when I was in a time of need I started using the couch surfing website as a tool. It honestly saved me. I enjoy what couch surfing has opened me to. I have met some beautiful people and have seen things I would not have been able to see if not for this experience. In return I have hosted when possible. I understand what an amazing experience it is and would love to offer this experience to others when I can.
At home I had mainly just helped out friends or friends of friends when they were in a tricky situation. At the time I wasnt aware of what couch surfing actually was. Then I set off travelling and have surfed at houses of people I had met or known prior, then decided to make use of this site. I have surfed informally in Sydney, Melbourne, Leeds, Dundee, Hamburg and Ljubljana. Through the site I have surfed in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Rijeka and Ljubliana. It has been an amazing journey and I am loving every moment!

I'm open to most music but these kinds of bands and musicians make me happiest :-)
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Jumping into the freezing waters of Iceland at 5am in the morning with 50 or so drunk people at eistnaflug festival. Iceland in general.meeting so many of my idols. Having roger merit come up to me after an agnostic front show to give me a hug and make sure i was okay after he saw me go metal in the moshpit ha ha. These are just a few but my life is filled with amazing and breathtaking moments. Gotta live it to the full and not hold back from opportunities that could lead you to the best things you've ever experienced.
Teach, Learn, Share
If you stay positive, things will always work out for you. I have been on the street with no place to go in a place i'd never been and knew no one. Still, I sat there and smiled at the people who passed me by. next thing people are giving me money, food, a jacket and a place to stay with out me even having to ask for anything. Stay positive, love yourself and the world, and things will come to you.
