About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Hitchiking from England to South America by land and sea

ABOUT ME

I've been told I'm outgoing, a natural conversationalist, and have a positive outlook on life.

PHILOSOPHY

Left Libertarian fighting for a better world.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” (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.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Stayed with some lovely Polish ladies in Cadiz, Spain.
Stayed with a kind local man in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

Interests

Dancing, chilling, walking, eating, meeting new people, seeing amazing places, thrill seeking, finding out about different cultures and political landscapes.

Music, Movies & Books

So many to name... Brazil, Fight Club, Garden State, Snatch, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, A Beautiful Mind, Amelie, Anchorman, City of God, all Michael Moore documentaries, Mulholland Drive... love watching films!

Will listen to pretty much anything other than minimal techno which I find really boring. Play mainly Beirut, Bonobo, Kings of Leon, the Kooks, MGMT, the Klaxons, Cinematic Orchestra, Zero 7, James Brown, Dinah Washington, Louis Armstrong, High Contrast, Bob Marley, Carlos Vives, Jose Gonzalez, Mr Scruff, Chinese Man...

Trainspotting, A Clockwork Orange, The Shock Doctrine, all of Mark Thomas' books, The War of Don Emmanuel's Nether Parts, Harry Potter, His Dark Materials Series...

One Amazing Thing I've Done
