About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To meet people from all walks of life.... and learn Spanish.

ABOUT ME

I'm a 26yr old gal from a small town in Australia. For the next few years I'll be travelling around the world teaching English and exploring new places and cultures. I love teaching because it's so rewarding! I hope to go back to Australia after a few years or so and settle down. But while I'm young I want to visit as many places as possible, but I want the company of fun people to share my experiences with :)

For hosts, things you should know about me is that I'm super chill and responsible. I'm clean and quiet, but also out-going. I do my best to work around YOUR schedule :D I'm really good with sticking to house rules too! I have only recently joined CS and this will be the first time I'm surfing. While I have no references yet, I'm more than happy to send you references from people I have rented with/ stayed with. It's not problem!

PHILOSOPHY

It's all good mate.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I use CS for meeting locals and going to nearby neighborhoods and events. I'm about to start surfing too!! Wish me luck!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have not yet couch surfed or hosted, but I have met many people through this website for the purpose of having a buddy to accompany me on little adventures.

Interests

Food, especially vegan/raw Movies... omg ANYTHING!!! I love all kinds of movies! I'm trying to become more cultured by watching more foreign films, but occasionally I'll skip those for a good old fashion "Die Hard" film. Fitness and exercise (love weight training) Horse riding and animals Nutrition Bike riding Sleeping Talking about the environment, sometimes politics, gender equality, war, sex, psychology The workplace - group behaviour and processes English - love the structure of English!! Learning about other cultures and their languages (comes with the territory of being an English language teacher)

Music, Movies & Books

Music... to be honest, I don't have a favourite genre. I'll listen to anything. Books... fiction! Nothing with vampires... sorry. Movies: anything that isn't a romantic comedy. Some top movies: Step brothers Notes on a Scandal All the Scream movies Anything that's Horror (Graves Encounters was awesome!) Julia's Eyes (Spanish) Billy Madison Bridesmaids

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The best thing I've seen/done was when I went to Cambodia and stayed on an island off the south coast. The sunset was spectacular! Because I'm Australian I've seen the Aussie outback, which is really beautiful, and out rain forests and beaches are something so unique!

The best person I ever met was a Korean girl named Ashley. She's a personal trainer at a few gyms in South Korea. She was so cool and offered me so much insight into Korean culture and the language. She's now one of my best friends :D

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: Horse riding and equine care English Australia and its people How to make a sandwhich

Learn: I want to know more about health and nutrition Politics Travel stories Cultures, countries

Share: A bottle of white wine (reds give me headaches... sad) A good joke
