  • About KoalaGirl:

    I've travelled a fair bit and am not very good at the "normal" life. I thrive on change and new challenges, particularly if they involve new places, new people and new cultures. I am naturally curious and hunger to learn more about others and the world around me...

    I'm adventurous and love anything that involves an adrenoline rush... snow boarding, bungy jumping, sky-diving, scuba-diving, white water rafting, abseiling, caving.... whatever comes along I'm up for it!

  • Hobbies:

    Travel! (Of course)
    Scuba Diving
    Outdoor Adventure Sports
    Wining & Dining
    Live Theatre
    Dancing

  • Favourite places:

    There's such great things about so many places - how can you decide? Top 10 would have to include:
    - Foz de Iguassu, Brazil
    - Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland
    - NY City
    - Florence, Italy
    - Banff, Canada
