About Me

I will NOT stay with unverified hosts/hosts with very few references for safety reasons, so please do not contact me if that is your situation. Also, this is not Tinder.


To have one last hurrah in Europe and visit as many countries I missed the first time 'round as possible, before heading back to Tasmania in August to create a grounded home where I will grow my own food and create


I'm almost always smiling and I have a real thirst for going new places, it could even be as simple as a new street in a city I've lived or a corner of a park I haven't set foot in before. I'm not religious but I do believe everything and everyone has a common connection. I'm currently eating a pescatarian diet as I wanted to reduce my meat consumption but I don't care if you eat meat and would never lecture anybody. I equally enjoy being alone and spending time with people; I love to talk but at the same time the silence doesn't always have to be filled. I want to learn from you.


Always live in this moment

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love meeting diverse people and have currently stayed with two hosts an participated in a hang out. I've not yet hosted due to having lived overseas myself for years although I'll be thrilled to one day very soon (September 2017!!!) be able to host surfers at my house in Stanley, Tasmania!


Even though I've been a member for 7 years, I've only recently successfully surfed in Helsinki and now in Turku too. Couldn't be enjoying it more! I'm looking at rapidly growing my experience over the next two sun-filled months in Europe
