About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To explore and experience the world before I am 30

ABOUT ME

I was born as a bird with yellow feathers... you may know me for my work on Sesame Street.

My current dream is to travel the world and take in as much as possible. I believe there is no such thing as the best country in the world, all are unique and amazing in their own ways. I don't just want to travel the globe... I want to experience the world!

I'm a social, fun and professional 29 year old male. I enjoy socialising with friends and meeting new people, usually this involves one or two alcoholic beverages. I regularly play sport and I enjoy running. I enjoy my job and have fun at work... my old job... my new job is traveling, I guess I enjoy that too.

I love life!

I left Australia on 24 June 2013 to travel the world for 3 years (due to money it will now be only 2 years). This is the end for me... my trip France, London, France, Spain, Portugal, Spain, Portugal, Spain, France, Monaco, France, Spain, France, Australia, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Chile, Australia, USA, Canada, USA, Canada, Mexico, USA, Australia.

PHILOSOPHY

Have fun, continually learn and progress in all aspects of life.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've had fun with many amazing people on CS, I've shared my life & culture, and learnt about their life and culture.

I'm offering my lounge, personality and local knowledge... At the end of your stay you can keep the latter two but the lounge stays.

I'm am also happy to meet up with people for coffee/drink/meal to share my local knowledge with. Or play weekend tour guide.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've met some of the most awesome people through couch surfing!

I have hosted a CouchSurfing NYE party in my house and organised a few meet ups. I have been on a few amazing road trips and weekends away. I have also hosted BBQs in local park, over 60 CouchSurfers attended one of these.

Interests

I regularly play sport (tennis, soccer, touch football and boxing)
I enjoy running
I love music festivals
I love traveling and want to do looooootttttttssssss more!

Music, Movies & Books

All music

I like comedy/action movies but unpredictable movies with unexpected twists are best.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I believe it is the little things that make up life and not the big events... Everyday is special!

Highlights:
Hiking Torres del Paine, Chile (The most beautiful national I've ever seen).
Hitchhiking the Atlantic coast of France without speaking French.
Cycling Death Road, Bolivia.
Ice Climbing out of a glacier's crevasse (Glaciar Viedma, Argentina).
Conquering a 6,088m mountain (Huayna Potosi, Bolivia).

Road Tripping California, Nevada, Utah & Arizona, USA.
The Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu, Peru.
