About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Smell the flowers.

ABOUT ME

Autohagiographer: One who speaks or writes in a smug or self-aggrandising way about his/her life or accomplishments (thanks to word-of-the-day calendar)

So in an unautohagiographic (is that a word??) bombshell: I'm a currently breathing, functioning (most the time), 23 year old with a lust for life and meeting new folk such as yourself.

PHILOSOPHY

Grateful Dead's "Ripple"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've just spent 1 year on constant surfing rotation around SE Asia, Europe and the States. Now that I am semi settled I'm changing roles and becoming the host.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Too little a box for such grand and memorable experiences.

Interests

Have a penchant for all things bright, colourful, textured and noisy. Music of all sorts. Black and white films, especially French New Wave, are a regular pleasure. Beer, wine, music and good company always equates to mesmerising times. Photography, reading, anthropology and drawing. Hitch-hicking and meeting new and old souls on the road. And last but not least... GARLIC!

- hearing: Stereolab, GYBE, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Sigur Ros, The Dirty Three, Deerhunter, The Velvet Underground, Serge Gainsbourg, Rowland S. Howard, Pep Laguarda, Swans.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I was walking back to my hotel in India and stumbled into what appeared to be a mobile street party. We followed and were invited into the celebrations which ended up being a massive, exuberant wedding. Food, music, dancing and a plethora of colours!!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you my Nonna's pasta sauce recipe.

Spanish practice please!

Share stories, the ones that are happy, sad, or a nondescript place in between.
