About Me


To visit Humanity & the Earth - as much of both as I can


Simon - is in the eye of the beholder.

i am a human who loves travelling & sharing life's moments with other earthlings.

This link shows how i move around the planet:

i am Travelling by Gift ... and it is AMAZING!!!

I am discovering that as I journey, and every encounter helps me define it further.

I definitely was an existentialist nihilist at some point, but maybe now I believe in the universe and purpose .... i believe in being "good" regardless.

The only thing that I can be certain of is, I experience ... beyond that, I can't be certain of anything.

Reality is in the eye of the beholder!

I live my life to be happy & wherever possible, add to the happiness of others.

I am a member of one tribe of 7 billion.

I am solely responsible for my happiness.

I endeavour to "Be the change I wish to see"

I am passionate about Human Rights and Animal Rights

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


A flatmate & I hosted a couple of years ago. Now I'm travelling for 7-8 years and will host again (can't wait) upon my return to Australia.
At the moment I participate by surfing or meeting up with other CSers - my favourite way to really visit a place.


Hosted some amazing humans in Brisbane in 2009, I am now surfing the world, sharing peace with CS Hosts, which are some of the best humans our species has to offer. CS is a heart touching way to travel & I've made friendships that will last a lifetime.


My nieces & nephews!!
Watching a sunrise, a sunset, a moonrise.
I'm very interested in conversation with interesting humans from all over the planet and meeting as many new perspectives as possible.
I love life & every experience it can offer!
I also love animals!
& evidently, I love the use of an exclamation mark! :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Love music - I like to let the universe decide the soundtrack to my life. So the universe usually works through my Hosts & their playlists :)

Love books - "a picture paints a thousand words", true, and equally, a word paints a thousand pictures. I generally read non-fiction and the focus is on whatever I am trying to learn about at the time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Many - my life has been pretty blessed. Whether it has been with work, on holidays, or just sharing time with high calibre humans; my journey continues to be filled with amazing experiences.
just some of the highlights are;
holding my god son Conner
hugging my friend dying from cancer
watching the sunset in Dubrovnik on 12 May 2012 and seeing a sunspot!! (That was mind blowing!!)
gazing at the Milky Way on a gorgeous night at Cabarita Beach
But again, "it is not what you do in the moment, but who you share the moment with"

Teach, Learn, Share

I have everything still to learn, will share all that I have & hope that if there is anything I teach, it is positive for humanity.
