Kia Ora from New Zealand, Aotearoa... I am sorry all you avid travllers but times are changing and I am now having to charge for accommodation in my home. This is out of neccessity and will be unable to host Couch Surfers for Free. I wish you well on your Journey. Im passionate about people and different cultures. I begin my Round the World journey on the 30 July 2010 starting in Chile. My first language is English and Ive been trying to learn un poquito Espanol. Espanol is a beautiful language and has the same vowels as Maori so my pronounciation is bueno. Im sure speaking different languages doesnt have to be a barrier to communication, it would be fun making ourselves understood! Im on a journey of the heart, willing to follow synchronistic signs to places I need to go to learn more about myself and what I have to offer others. Couch surfing will take me into a new world, a brave world of like minded travellers and new friends of different cultures.Being a positive person I love to chat and learn about other people. Its good to face a few fears otherwise Id stop 'growing'. I love dancing and would be excited to learn some Latin American dance."Friends are like stars, you cant always see them but you know they're always there" I hope to make many more friends through CS. as they say "strangers are only friends you havnt met yet".UPDATE!.........I was in South America for 3 months arrived in the UK Beginning November 2010. I visited a friend in the Czech Republic for a two weeks. Back to the UK on 4 Dec for two weeks before going back to New Zealand for a month, due to sick family member :(.
