About Me

Hi! I'm Lee, an Austrian Australian. I spend my time living in different countries around the world, never being too settled or too comfortable. There is always something new to learn about life when in unfamiliar places.

I manage the online world for an elephant sanctuary in Cambodia which allows me to work remotely, giving me the chance to keep on wandering the planet. I also teach conversational English online which allows me to experience the world thru the eyes of my students.

As a person I am quiet and considerate. I enjoy socialising with small groups of people and really like the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences. Hobbies are eating, walking, swimming and reading.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love the idea of connecting with locals and other travellers to share experiences and stories.

Staying in hotels, hostels and air bnb's does not compare with accepting the kindness of a stranger to let me stay at their home and giving us both the opportunity to make a new friend.
