I have been described as quirky, animated and awestruck (about the world at large). I'll take their word for it. I live to discover, meet new ppl, travel to new places, try unknown food. I've lived in Wellington for almost 4 years and I love city, especially the harbour and the vibrant coffee culture.
I have been living in Melbourne since October 2008 which has been a blast. I lived in a hostel for 2 months called 'The Nunnery' which was an interesting experience and full on.
At the moment I'm taking sailing lessons which I love to bits.
My favourite snack is fresh butter on warm bread. I love the taste of cooked bananas.
Aug 2010 - I'm now living back in Wellington. I really need to update my profile.
"Remember, no human condition is ever permanent. Then you will not be overjoyed in good fortune nor too scornful in misfortune."
"He is rich who is content with the least; for contentment is the wealth of nature."
Live in the present. Don't hold on to the constraints of your past. Don't be disgruntled because you are NOT traveling right now. Feel the sense of freedom and ongoing fulfillment.
I am as I am
whats the point in living if u can't feel alive
win some, lose some

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have joined in to 3 events. Two were a Texas-holdem poker evening in Wellington. Another was a 20/20 cricket match at the MCG. There were really nice people. Have hosted 2 couch surfers.
I couchsurfed in Adelaide with Carolyne. Thanks Carolyne!! It was cool
My interests tend to change often but the mainstays would be dancing. I did Salsa dancing in 2006 it was a lot of fun. This year i wish to undergo Ceroc dancing at The Performing Arts Centre. I like the sea, sky and sun. I like drinking tea, tea ceremonies and visiting plantations of tea.
I'm really into toastmasters this year (2010)
