Hey all, Ive just moved to safety beach, a week ago, from England. Im working long hours as a nanny and i dont drive, so as you can expect my socialising so far has been nil!! If anybody fancies meeting up for a coffee or doing something, either evenings or weekends, it would be great, much love, Linsey

Hey!!
We're Newbies too...more or less (six months). We posted here when we first arrived but didnt get much of a response. I dont think there are too many CS'ers out this way. We would love to catch up some time and we dont have a car but live round the corner and have two bikes so we can definitely work something out :)
We finish up around five in the arvo most days. This friday arvo we are headed to the city to catch up (cycling) with another couchsurfer but if you have afternoons/evenings free during the week drop us a line and we might be able to meet up somewhere and share our lack of knowledge about the Peninsula :P
cheers, keep in touch
Robin and Pepix

As for no car...well I've never had one so for me its nto too bad....I mean there is always a lot to see if you look hard enough...and we have the bikes:)

yeah its great to hear you can get around here without a car... i would struggle with that here but whilst living OS i never needed one and found it a lot easier most of the time ...


Well looks like a get together is in due order considering everyone is all up for the idea ...

Hey its good to hear your enjoying the area it is a lovely area with a lot in it ... as for melbourne you should probably check out the wiki melbourne page because there is soo much to do ... http://wiki.couchsurfing.com/en/Melbourne
my favourites are the arcades and cup of truth for your coffee but there is much stuff like ACMI..

Well if you want to go out for a glass of red or coffee on sunday night im free ... maybe the brass razu in mornington just message me ... good luck
