Big ambitions, Just Winging it.
I joined CS while travelling around Europe on a 4 month trip. I was lucky enough to be hosted a couple of times, meet so many fantastic people (CS commmunity and outside CS)
I'm a Free Spirit!
I am very open-minded. I enjoy meeting others from all over & understand that we are all shaped by our past so you cant judge someone for their decisions unless you have identical life experiences...
As much as I love travelling and getting new experiences, "I still call Australia home!"
I am an Aussie, but I have never been to the outback or been surfing. May be surprised to know I have been skiing in Australia!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I HOST, I SURF, I pay the fee!
I recommend others pay the fee, if you stay one night in a hostel it comes out the same price, except for one thing. If you stay in a hostel, hotel, apartment what ever you miss out on the opportunity of meeting a really awesome local! I can't wait to do a CS holiday where I only surf!!
Thinking about hosting, DO IT! It's as much fun as travelling, then you can go to work the next day or what ever your plans are.
COUCH SURFING is proof that for some people, the open-minded, genuine, honest people, we can make friends with anyone! I am confident if I meet someone through CS, it doesn't matter what their background is they will be awesome!!!
A funny story,
I hosted a young British girl who was desperate for accommodation. Waited 2.5 hours at a hostel while she was out partying. She turned up drunk at 1am.
She spewed in my kitchen, broke my towel rail in my bathroom and offered no apology.
However, if this is the worst experience I have on CS I am happy to be part of it!
EVERYONE ELSE I'VE MET HAVE BEEN TOTALLY AWESOME!!!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
4 day yacht cruise through the Mediterranean on a traditional Turkish yacht. Recommended!
Gone to Finnish sauna (about 300 degrees) and afterwards jumped in freezing cold water (about -273 degrees).
Jumped off Macau Tower, the highest bungee site in the world at 233 metres.
Being strictly disciplined by Russian military after putting my hands in my pockets while viewing the Lenin mausoleum in Moscow
Better yet to come!
Teach, Learn, Share
Can teach you to cook. I can teach you to cook some basic dishes to perfection!
