About Me


To love and be loved with lots of laughs along the way!


Optimistic, fun-loving, passionate, willing to get involved, enthusiastic, generous, open, full of laughs and always ready for a good time. I love finding out about new cultures and meeting new people. I feel happiest when outdoors and love camping and hiking. Environmentalism is a big part of my life.


I try not to worry about things, I just make the most of the here and now. I try to live sustainably and make conscious choices about what I consume. I make sure I stay optimistic and try to laugh in all situations. I love the quote "be kind to strangers lest they be angels in disguise" and I always make an effort to smile at people I haven't yet met as one day we might be best friends!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've been involved with couch surfing the last few years, both hosting and surfing.


Moving to Santiago a few years, couch surfing was a great way to make new friends.


I love bike riding around Melbourne, reading the newspaper on a sunday morning, drinking tea in the sun, trawling through markets and opshops in order to find bargains, swimming at the beach with friends, nights out dancing, listening to great music, singing outloud and baking chocolate brownie.
