About Me



Lover of the outdoors, simplicity and the unconventional.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Having had the greatest time couchsurfing around the world, I am now looking forward to returning the love and living vicariously through other travellers as I settle back into routine.

I hope to meet people who are spontaneous, curious and as hungry as I am to discover life. I don't see CS as an opportunity for cheap travel but as a way to meet authentic people who can show me their country and lifestyle, including their family and friends. For me, travelling is meeting the people who define a land and its beauties.


People, art, surfing/long-boarding, photography, yoga, social projects/charities, festivals, philosophy, off the beaten track exploration/tramping, taking my time eating breakfast wondering who I am and coming to no real conclusion....

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: I enjoy eclectic, indie, folk, jazz, or ethnic sounds.
Ali Farka Toure, Bon Iver, Nas, Alt-J, Kendrick Lamar, K'naan, Manu Chao, Bonobo, Eddie Vedder, Chet Faker, Amadou & Mariam, Beirut, Xavier Rudd, Goldroom, Erykah Badu to name a few.

Movies: I love art films (Water by Deepa Mehta, Amelie, Into the Wild) or generally films by Tarantino, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Woody Allen, Francis Ford Coppolla.

Books: Leo Tolstoy, Rudyard Kipling, Guy de Maupassant, George Orwell, Pablo Neruda are a few of my favourites.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Travelling and becoming a story teller in the process.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can cook vegetarian dishes for you, share my tips on hitchhiking and travelling on a shoestring, teach you how to cruise on a board, how to speak New Zealand-ish or if I am tipsy enough, I have some rocking salsa moves!

In exchange: Teach me about your culture, language, outlooks, unique city or if able how to play the harmonica!
