About Me


2 year break


I'm always looking forwards to meeting new people. I've had the chance to do quite a bit of traveling to different regions in the world due to work or holidays I've taken. Traveling is by far the thing I enjoy doing the most and personal experience shows that getting to know places through locals gives travelling a whole different perspective.


Live and let live.
Never miss out on a good opportunity.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I've travelled CS style before actually joining the community, so I guess I have some experience in the whole meaning of it. Unfortunately I was unable to host last year because I wasn't living in my flat. Right now I'm participating in as much CS events I can in Sydney, been having a blast.
