About Me

I feel all the time the need to move around from place to incredible place and love that many people I meet whilst running around will party/talk nonsense/share their stories with me.

I'm a Laid back softy who just starting travelling after years of exams and I'm having adventures everyday now just by living so far from home and exploring Australia. I will always be drifty and chilled which works well for travelling, I don't get too worried about the little things!

My life mission is to change the worlds impression of English tourists and drink all the tea I can find ( it's a little paradoxical but heyho).

When it's time to recharge I do some yoga, draw some peculiar things and then blob with my mates. Blobbing is my profession and my love. Maybe now you know something about me, maybe not, we'll have to find out when we meet!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's an awesome idea. I couldn't believe it when a friend told me about how all these people are friendly and trusting as hell (then again I am a Londoner ) I want to meet some people who know Melbourne and all its nooks whilst I'm living in this city.

TEA! at least 8 cups a day...

Music, Movies, and Books

The good the bad and the ugly, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind, donnie darko, run Lola run, planet terror and true romance

Books - something like 100 years of solitude or anything by Murakami, scar tissue too ( I'm a wee bit of a chili peppers fanatic )

My taste is broad and sporadic - Bonobo, a tribe called quest ,patti smith, desert dwellers, tracy chapman and rhcp and young fathers...anything powerful and full of soul

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Raved for 3 days straight in an abandoned mansion

Spooned a kangaroo

Sand boarded

Hiked the hills of Wales for 7 glorious days with m'lovely buds

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you a little yoga and how to draw a pretty good nose. Are these things anyone wants to learn? That I do not know.. I want to learn everything! I realise this is a grand ambition but I'm greedy!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am a friendly, friendly woman who cleans up after herself and hates conflict. I will help out around the house where I can and be respectful of my hosts. I consider it a total honour to be let into someone's home and I ways hope to respect that.
