  • About DownUnder81:

    My main focuses in life are: health, studies in linguistics, exploring and learning about the world, and learning languages. At this stage I am having a two semester break from my studies, before I throw myself into my thesis for my Master. In my free time, I like to explore Tasmania, read, laze in bed, go camping and trekking, getting nude in nature, do winter sports, jump online, and enjoy the company of my friends.

    I am a firm believer in language diversity, protection of the environment, social welfare, renewable energies, sustainable farming and mining, public education and health, rights and support to the Indigenous population of Australia, and a world without borders.

    Previously, I have cycled around Europe over two and a half years, working and learning languages. The goal now is to gain experience in linguistics and to travel Australia, exploring its natural, linguistic and cultural diversity.
