About Me


To learn French :)


I am heading out to a remote part of Australia to teach a year 1 class. I am looking forward to this whole new experinece. I am a positive person and enjoy simple pleasures.


Be kind and generous.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have met a couple of people through couchsurfing and surfed in France. Every time it has been great and I have made soem great friends. I am not in the position to host at the moment, but hope to in the future.


Last year, I was lucky enough to meet a couple of great people through couch surfing, so I look forward to doing it again this year.


I love traveling, delicious food, shopping, meeting new people, the beach, cinema, reading, anything picturesque in nature, little villages, big cities, different cultures, different languages.
If I could have one wish - it would be to speak and understand all the languages in the world.

Music, Movies, and Books

French films, Friends, How I Met Your Mother.
Most music, not that stuff where they scream though, or rap.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Well anything David Attemborough really covers it.
But for real life experiences, meeting people in Vietnam who still live their traditional life in Sapa was pretty up there, and I thought it was hilarious when a woman in traditional costume whipped out her Nokia mobile phone, haha. Definately not what you expect.

I love cooking, so I can definitely cook something for you :)
