About Me


Classified....but can be interrogated with beer and tequila


An English guy who fed up with a mundane accountant's life in London, decided to embark on an 8 month round-the-world trip in late-2010.
I then developed a travel addiction and went back to Asia for 3 months, before and doing a 6 month trip around the US, Canada and Central America.
Hoping to do 3 moths around Southern Africa in 2015.

I'd describe myself as easy-going, ambitious, fun to be around and always willing to try new experiences...a typical Leo.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Always happy to have people stay, ideally ones with amazing culinary skills.
While travelling am keen to meet people for drinks, meals and adventure activities.


I have met quite a few couch-surfers while travelling, including attending a few house-parties, hosting and surfing.
Was a great way to get advice on the area and share a few beers in a relaxed environment.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: mostly thrillers and horror movies.,
Books: Lonely Planet is a life-saver. Otherwise I don't really read a great deal

Mountain biked down Death Road Bolivia, 4 day jungle trek in Colombia, white-water rafting in Argentina (ok, that's 3 but everyone else posts loads so why not....)
