About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Exploration of the 3rd rock from the sun

ABOUT ME

I'm an avid traveller, who loves to meet all kinds of people. I will try anything at least once (well almost anything)
I have grown up learning to appreciate life an never to take the basics for granted. I've slept in some remote places, from snow caves to forests to 6ft under the ground (the tunnel that filled with water overnight)

PHILOSOPHY

No regrets... its not worth kicking yourself over it later....

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I like to host where ever I can between working commitments and generally hang out on the weekends. I am also happy to get involved in local activities, once I stop moving around the country so often and settle down for more than a year,

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Met some great people with CS while travelling in the US with friends. Have couchsurfed in throughout Europe with some awesome hosts, and I have hosted a few people here and there whereever I have had a spare couch to offer.

Interests

Extreme sports, football, mountain biking, wakeboarding, snowboarding, 4x4 driving, pub crawling, seeing live sports, body surfing, rugby, and most things that involve the outdoors plus anything else that involves good times and good people.
