Join Couchsurfing to see Andrew’s full profile. It’s free!
I grew up in the small town of Griffith, NSW Australia and upgraded to the exciting metropolis of Canberra for university at 19.
After graduating and a few years working in learning and development for the federal public service, I'm currently enacting a grand plan of backpacking for several months from Iran to Europe, blowing all my savings in this worthwhile endeavor.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I haven't really used Couchsurfing since creating my profile years ago, but I love the concept of cultural exchange and reciprocity, and hope to start using it more!
History, travel, hiking, new experiences.
Music, Movies, and Books
Everything, but I have a weak spot for horror movies (Get Out), anime (Attack on Titan), and dystopian fiction (1984).
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One "amazing" thing I can really look back and laugh about - "losing" my passport in Turkey, forcing me to fly to Ankara to organise a replacement. Then, since I was still travelling, organising the passport's postage to a Turkish border town near Syria, providing the embassy with a supposed post office address I found using the at-the-time dodgy Google Translate. After the onset of torrential rain, coupled with severe sickness, I eventually located my passport, which was posted to a telecommunications provider in the border town.
Then, just before leaving Turkey, I found my "lost" and cancelled passport in a hidden compartment of my bag.
Teach, Learn, Share
I love learning about the local culture and language in each country I'm in, I'm more than happy to answer any questions about Australia as well.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Perhaps I'll have a jar of Australia's (in)famous Vegemite to share. Besides that, good chats over beverages.
