Hitchhiking from the western tip of Europe to Turkey
I'm a Tasmanian, which, if you're an Australian, you'll give me shit about. Grew up in a tiny town an hour south of Hobart.
I've been living in Sydney for about 4 years and recently moved to Melbourne for work.
I've recently come back from spending a 5 weeks in New York City, which was incredible.
I love random stupid adventures...I'm into rock climbing, fire twirling, jazz, good theatre and travelling. I recently learnt how to pick locks so I could more easily break into rooftops - it's wicked being up so high in a place you shouldn't be...the perspective and rush that it gives you is awesome.
I get along with pretty much anyone that's open to anything
I just take life as it comes. No bullshit or fluff, just love to have fun
Im following my dream with my work, and meeting some really cool people in my travels
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Surf, host and hang out with awesome people
It's given me an amazing perspective on life and how kind and generous random strangers can be.
The most fun I've ever had has been through couch surfing experiences.
Gaming - I have a very daggy gamer side. I've got a PS3 and MacBook Pro
Waffles - Just a generally awesome anytime food (try eating them for breakfast with ice-cream, in the shower...it's awesome...an experience you won't forget!)
Live Entertainment - It's my work, but also a love of mine. Good theatre, jazz, cabaret or musicals are awesome
Wine & Coffee - I'm not a snob, just think both liquids are totally tasty
- rock climbing
Music, Movies, and Books
Swordfish, Angels in America, The Matrix, Requiem for a Dream, American Beauty, Unknown, My Neighbour Totoro, Spirited Away, The Fountain, Shortbus, Fight Club, heaps more
Tear Drop by Massive Attack is my all-time favourite song (not because it's now the theme song for House!)
Other than that, Sia, Pear, Pendulum, Fat Boy Slim, Regina Spektor, Kate Miller-Heidki, Seal, Savage Garden, Gyroscope, Tiger Lou
The Tibetan Book of Living & Dying, The Hours
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Threw a full-scale dance party on a NYC subway train with a bunch of other surfers. We had music, drinks, streamers, and we blacked out some of the lights. We tasked a burley russian surfer with the job of security guard....so every time we stopped at a station, he'd get outside the train and look imposing, asking new passengers for ID when they tried to get on
Watched a spanish evangelical gospel concert (imagine the musical numbers from Sister Act in spanish)
Collected pet tortoises in Turkey
Went to collect some friends on a little fijian fishing boat and got stuck ont he reef at about 2 in the afternoon. By the time the tide came back up it was 11pm. We just chilled in the boat with these fijian dudes all afternoon. You have the most awesome deep and meaningfuls with old dudes who speak with broken english
