About Me

I'm currently on a round the world journey travelling by motorcycle.
In my former life I worked in the IT field but decided for a bit of a change and sold all (well most of) my possessions and decided to see a bit more of the world. I have always enjoyed travelling, meeting new people and cultures and generally trying to experience the way the rest of the world lives. But this time wanted to do it differently and not have a time limit and have to go back to a job.
So in September of 2014 left my home town of Melbourne and set off on my bike. Initially my goal was to get to the UK but now I intend to do the full circuit and head eventually back home via the Americas.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet up with true locals of the countries that I travel through. I find that by meeting up with ordinary every day people from different cultures you learn so much about that country.
