About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be forever young.

ABOUT ME

To combat my travel withdrawels I would love for some funloving backpackers to come stay with me and bring the travelling spirit to my home :) I love meeting new and intersting people that are doing inspiring things with their life. My work is in nutrition so my favourite thing to do is share a delicious meal and discuss ways we can better the world :)

PHILOSOPHY

Eat to live and live to eat!

deep I know

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've hosted some amazing people in my home in Krakow Poland while I was on exchange there. It was so much fun exploring that beautiful city with other travellers but at the same time being able to recommend the best places for dumplings and beer. During my stay there I couchsurfed on the weekends in surrounding countries and got to experience the real European couchsurfing culture! Amazing!

I also hosted in our small surf town of Forster NSW in Australia and met some awesome people travelling up and down the east coast.

I have just recently moved back to my home country and settled in Victoria BC. Its so beautiful here and I would love to share it with some new couchsurfers!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

When i was in Iraq people invited me to stay in their houses, so i got to experience 'CS' without yet using it. Now i know what its like and want to continue to do so. I also want to invite other travellers into my house and show them the same amazing time that I experienced when i was travelling!

When I was living in Krakow, Poland I had the opportunity to open my house to other travellers and every weekend was an adventure! I also travelled through Europe this way and met some amazing people that I will never forget!

Now I have hosted some great people in Forster, keeps things around here interesting

Interests

Travel and food travel!

I studied food and health and hope to one day expand that into doing humanitarian work or delve into the field of sustainable nutrition which is something I feel we will all soon have to live by, sooner rather then later.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: the shins, arcade fire and the yeah yeah yeahs

Books: kite runner, house of spirits, god of small things (would love any recommendations!)
