Hitchiking from England to South America by land and sea
I've been told I'm outgoing, a natural conversationalist, and have a positive outlook on life.
Left Libertarian fighting for a better world.
ÃÂ¢Ãâ¬ÃÅNever doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.ÃÂ¢Ãâ¬ÃÂ (Margaret Mead)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Couchsurfing in South America. Will try and host as much as possible when I get back.
Stayed with some lovely Polish ladies in Cadiz, Spain.
Stayed with a kind local man in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
Dancing, chilling, walking, eating, meeting new people, seeing amazing places, thrill seeking, finding out about different cultures and political landscapes.
