Sobre mí

I am a primary school teacher living in Kaikoura, a wonderful seaside town on the east coast of Te Wai Pounamu, famous for crayfish, whales and earthquakes! I live within walking distance of town and the beach.

Por qué estoy en Couchsurfing

I was introduced to couchsurfing while travelling around Australia waaay back in 2008. It just made so much sense to me and I loved meeting locals and sharing meals, stories and advice with them. Since then I have hosted many travelers in my homes and I'm also part of (its like couchsurfing for cycle tourists, check it out!). I'm here to continually be part of the hospitality that is vital for a healthy travelling community.


Art & music of almost every type, acrobatics, travel, getting off the beaten track, hiking, cycling, learning Te Reo Maori, organic gardening, yoga and meditation keep me sane. I play ukulele and love jamming with others. I used to read a lot but not so much any more, I like drinking cups of tea with interesting folk...

Música, películas y libros

Lately I have been reading 'The Energy of Prayer' by Thich Nhat Hanh, I love his writing. I don't read many novels, I enjoy non-fiction in the science/psychology/spirituality realms. My taste in music and movies is too varied to list, but at the moment I'm really enjoying the tunes of Cloud Cult.

Algo increíble que he hecho

Most recently, a 10 day tramp through Kahurangi National Park, where we spent our days walking down rivers, through forests and over mountains without seeing any other humans - utterly magical.

Enseña, aprende, comparte

I have devoted a lot of time to learning to draw and paint, so I'd love to share these skills! Also yoga ,meditation, nonviolent communication, bread baking and other vegetarian cooking, gardening knowledge.

I love learning new dance moves, and how to play uke and guitar...

Qué puedo ofrecer a los anfitriones

I appreciate taking time to connect with my hosts/surfers, however it happens - sharing a meal, chatting over a cup of tea, or doing yoga together in the garden. Taking time to share our stories, knowledge and experience is what makes couchsurfing awesome!
