About Me


To enjoy.


I have just moved back to Perth and am not doing the couchsurfing thing for the moment because I don't have the time! Will get my profile back up and running at some point in my life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am going to hold a workshop about CS while I'm on the Peace Boat to let people know how they can participate in the project. It'll mostly be to Japanese people- I really wanna see CS grow bigger in Japan, and to have lots of local people participating!


I used CS when I was traveling alone through Korea, and had a fantastic experience. I stayed with about 3 different people, and it really made the trip for me. I hosted about half a dozen people at my place in Hyuga, Miyazaki prefecture. I have also used it in Vietnam just to meet people for a meal, and was hosted in Shanghai.


Music, hanging out... studying Japanese has taken up pretty much every spare moment of my life for the last 17 months or so, so am sort of trying to catch up on all the movies and stuff I have missed out on. I guess I listen to alot of non mainstream stuff.
