I am from Singapore and live and work in Perth, Australia for the past 8 years. I work as a hydrogeologist and love to travel. I lived in Barcelona for 4 months during part of my 1year round the world trip and it was the best time in my life. I love the outdoors, love the nature, love climbing mountains.
I've made many great friends through Couchsurfing and love staying in hostels as well as couchsurf. Backpacking is the way to go for travelling, won't have it any other way. I used to stay in nice hotels and all because I was a flight attendant for Singapore Airlines but nothing beats backpacking - it spells Adventure!
