Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

New to couchsurfing! Currenly have a big heart in which people can reside…and a futon and blow up mattress for the lounge :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Travelled around Europe and met mostly Australians...
Want to meet locals and figured the best place would be at your house!

Interests

It occurred to me at Splendour in the Grass that I may in fact be a hippy- I am an artist, have dreadlocks, care about the environment, talk about love and peace, practice yoga and meditate and at the time hadn't showered and was ok with that.
It was the same kind of shock realisation as if someone were to point out now that I am a lesbian after being in relationships with women for the past twelve years, but not knowing the title fit.

So being a hippy, I can describe myself to you using the printout from my aura photograph which I believe sums me up pretty well.
Joy and creativity are what I wish to focus on at this point in time. Friendship, socializing, having fun, and being myself are present goals most important to me now. I make my work and chores a pleasure and strive to enjoy every moment. I have a great sense of humor and laugh easily. My life is a fun, creative project.

I have gotten my aura photographed for the past nine years and it has consistently been orange which is a mixture of active red and intellectual yellow and indicates a creative future for me and apparently opportunities to enjoy the sensual pleasures in life ;)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Was embarrassed about how little of Australia I had seen when travelling around Europe a couple of years back and decided to take in more of my own country before jetting off again. Have been nursing in the outback with mostly indigenous patients and have learnt so much about this amazing country and feel I can represent a little better this time round!

Countries I've Visited
