Join Couchsurfing to see Rashmi’s full profile.
My mission is to embrace what God has for me in life, while exercising kindness, fairness and respect for all people. Which I do somewhat successfully some of the time, and manage to fail spectacularly from time to time! I love to have fun & go out, as well as nights in talking about all manner of things. I’m an emotional girl : )
I work in health care, I am fairly easy going and love a laugh. I am a KIA: a Kiwi in Australia, born in Auckland. I love travelling and meeting people; I am apparently an ambivert: someone who needs both alone time and socialising with people. I am generally a solo traveller. I believe in looking after people and helping them out as part of a communal, sharing outlook on life :)
I believe in critical thinking rather than mechanical thinking. I believe in relating to people with humanity, compassion and understanding, not just with shoulds and should nots. That tension between personal responsibility and social reality. As far as I am concerned, people's emotions are understandable and should not be judged, and we should always listen to understand, not just to reply!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I am here to meet people and couch surf, and see amazing places. I am fun loving ... but also hanging on knowing that life has many twists, turns, and ups and downs.. and it is all made ok in the end if I trust in God. I like to travel spending time exploring on my own, and then mix it in with locals to show me places. That way, I get to do it my way but also learn from others.
Was hosted in Provence, Melbourne and Firenze which were great :) I am a solo traveller so meet lots of people randomly, as it is. I also chilled out in Melbourne on someone’s couch in the amazing St Kilda.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I loved Europe, USA and the UK. Travelled solo for almost a year. Australia has been my playground the last several years and it is amazing!!
Teach, Learn, Share
I believe that listening respectfully is the key to social health. I don’t like cliques and clubs; stay open and inclusive. Quality time and kind words are the best things you can do for me. Listening non judgementally and including you is the best things I can do for you.
