About Me

My husband Tom and I went on our first backpacking trip in 2007 and loved every minute of it and it inspired us to continue travelling. We have just finished our second round the world trip, going through India, SE Asia, Central Asia and Europe.

On our last round of travels we headed to Eastern Europe, Middle East, North America, Central America and South America. Next up? We want to do an epic road trip from Alaska to Mexico!

To read more about our travels check out our blog: http://www.thetravelators.com.

We enjoy living in Melbourne when we are not travelling, checking out the art, food and sport trying to save money for our next adventure :)


Work to live, not live to work!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We have hosted and met a few travellers for drinks back in Adelaide and while travelling were lucky enough to surf other people's couches. Every experience we have had with CS has been extremely positive.


Travelling, meeting new people, trying local food, beer and wine, playing and watching all types of sport but especially rugby, AFL and basketball, and planning our next adventure.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music - grunge/rock/heavy metal, but will pretty much listen to anything. We did go to the Lady Gaga concert in Tallinn!
Movies - this is totally more Tom's area than mine, but fans of a couple of oldies like Gladiator and Forrest Gump, but will watch pretty much anything.
TV - love English and Irish comedy especially Father Ted and Black Books. Love Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Wire, Walking Dead, Under the Dome and Homeland.
Books - Game of Thrones, Tolkien, Stephen King, whatever I can find at the hostel book swap. Also a bit of modern history (especially international relations) and travel books too when we are feeling like being a bit more serious

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seeing our seventh wonder of the world together - the Taj Mahal. Absolutely spectacular!

Teach, Learn, Share

We can teach you all about rugby and Australian football - it's like a religion over here!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Perhaps a few Australian meals/desserts like pavlova, roast meat and veg, steak and chips, sausages in bread... And maybe even some vego options!
