its time to return the favour.
while i am saving up for my next plane ticket, i am living vicariously through other travellers and their adventures, and trying to be as open and accommodating to guests as possible.
i am a fun loving, laid back 27 years old, who grew up a little bit south of Bunbury (in the south west corner of Western Australia).
i like travelling and exploring new places, and there is always new adventures to be had.
i spent approximately 24 amazing months living in the rocky mountains of canada riding mountain bikes, and snowbording as much as possible.
i am now living back in Bunbury, western australia
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
i have had great experiences with couchsurfing,
in 2010 i spent about four months travelling around the USA, staying on many great couches. i spent the first five weeks of the trip touring around on a bike.
one time in particular i remember travelling through missoula (a city in montana) and staying there for a of couple of nights, and after sharing stories with the guys i was staying with, i found out that one of them had recently returned from a bicycle touring adventure of his own in New Zealand, and the other guy went to the same university as me, as an exchange student, living very near to where i lived... that made me realise it is a very small world we live in.
i am interested in;
- sports (pretty much all of them)
- living a sustainable lifestyle, with minimal waste
- my dog
Music, Movies, and Books
my favourite book used to be Lance Armstrong 'its not about the bike' ... until i found out it was all a lie...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
growing up in Bunbury, Western Auatralia, seeing dolphins in the water is a very regular occurance,
however the other day while i was canoeing in the river i managed to be in the right place at the right time, and for about 45 minutes i sat and watched approximately 20 dolphins swim under and around me as they were in a feeding frenzy. it was incredible, i was expecting David Attenborough to magically appear and start narrating the whole thing.
