Join Couchsurfing to see Alex’s full profile. It’s free!
I am here to share in adventures with people and enrich my future travelling experiences. I work a full time job but like to invest my free time into exploring new places, either in the wilderness or in cities.
I really want to see more of the world, and will be starting by visiting more European cities. I look forward to meeting lots of new and interesting people.
I've lived in Southampton since I moved from London seven years ago for university. I enjoy living in a student town, and find it a fun and vibrant place to live. Being close to the coast and countryside is also a nice bonus, I don't think I could move back to London!
I really enjoy having guests and welcome anybody who wants to see the South coast of England. I have a spacious flat with a couple of big sofa's, near to the centre of Southampton.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I have hosted a number of couch surfers in Southampton and have found it to be a great way to meet people from all over the world. I studied history whilst at university, which has given me a real passion for learning about different cultures, and seeing different people's perspectives on the world.
I am keen to travel more around the world and would like to do so by staying with people from the places that I visit. Rather than meeting other travellers at hostels etc.
It's a great way to get to know the true essence of the place that you are visiting.
I lead an active lifestyle and enjoy cycling and outdoor pursuits, for example hiking and sailing. Although I like spending time with my friends and going out in town; I also appreciate a weekend on a boat or camping in the country.
One of my ambitions in life is stand on top of a mountain on every continent, and so far I have only done Europe, so I have a lot more adventuring to do!
I enjoy learning to cook new dishes, and about cuisine from around the world.
I also enjoy playing music, I have played bass guitar for most of my life.

What I Can Share with Hosts
I like to see myself as a tidy and considerate house guest. I also love cooking for people so will happily help out in the kitchen!
The main reason I like to couch surf is because of the opportunity to meet people who live in the countries I am staying in. I hope that I can share some of my culture with them too.
