Hi all,
I'm Kristin. I'm an exchange student here in Melbourne (Burwood) and am craving some outdoor activity after all this city life.

I like to hike, swim, kayak, snorkel, etc... and try everything new.

I was recently inspired by my 10 day trip to Cape Tribulation to visit my friend who is working up at a zip line canopy tour and reef operator. Reminded me that I need to get to know my own outdoor activity around Melbourne. It seems there are plenty of jewels around Victoria, so let's get out and enjoy 'em!

I'm basically free from Wednesday until Sundays.... so any sort of trip that is coming round trip to Melbourne, I'm in for tagging along and pitching in.

Let me know my friends, and I sincerely hope that we can make something happen.

Hey Kristin!

I study here, too at Swinburne University. Same as you I'm really into outdoor activities, also like diving and sailing.

It's a pitty that I'm gonna be free from Fridays until Wednesdays! But probably we can start something at weekends. I'm excited about exploring everything!!
