About Me

I moved to Mount Gambier, South Australia, for work in January 2016.

I work full-time as a Store Manager in a local business, and live in an apartment in the middle of town - walking distance to the Blue Lake and Cave Gardens, and shops, cafes and restaurants. I like to spend my days off exploring country South Australia and Victoria, and can recommend plenty of places in and around Mt Gambier to enjoy while you're visiting.

My partner lives in Adelaide, so I spend at least one weekend a month away from home, but if I am around, you're welcome to come and stay!!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

After couch surfing around Europe, Africa, Asia, the U.S. and South America, I am lucky enough to be able to host people back in Australia!

I have had so many wonderful couch surfing experiences around the world. Couchsurfing has allowed me to see some of the most interesting, off the beaten track, and exciting locations and have some of my most memorable and funny experiences - I even got to yacht-surf on Lake Balaton, Hungary.

Back in Australia, I have hosted some of the most interesting and exciting people the world has to offer, and am looking forward to welcoming more people into my place.
