Home in sunny Nelson, enjoying the outdoors.
I returned NZ again this summer after some more time in Europe. Feels good to be back and was nice to have some time exploring my home island and catching up with friends and family. Now I've recently moved to Auckland to start a new exciting job and enjoy the city life.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
In the last few years I have travelled mostly throughout Europe but also within Africa. During this time I have stayed with a number of Couchsurfers and have always enjoyed my time meeting and staying with very kind local folk. When I finally get back 'home' (sometime...?) to New Zealand I look forward to being a host and continuing my great CS experience.
Mostly brief stays, but always positive experiences meeting people from around the world even if only for a short time. I have met some fantastic people and have made some good friends through CS.
Looking forward to some hiking and cycling around the top of the South Island. Beaches, mountains, forests, rivers, friends and family, that's home.
Music, Movies, and Books
Herman Hesse, Dostoevsky and Tolstoy lately.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
