About Me


To travel the world and live every day as it's my last...


My name is Barrie, I was born in London, England. When I was 12 I moved to Oxford, England with my family. For the last 2 years I have been traveling. I enjoy making new friends and taking in different cultures. In England I was working self employed trading on the internet. I love playing football and really enjoy being outside exploring.


My philosophy is that you only get what you work for in life. If your unhappy with your life the only person that can change it is you. Live life to the max as you never know which day will be your last. Treat others in the way you wish to be treated and give everyone the level of respect that they deserve. Never judge a book by it's cover, were all individuals with different backgrounds, morals and beliefs. The world we live in is nowhere near perfect, but if it was then there would be no point in living...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have no Couch Surfing experience as I have only just found out that "Couch Surfing" exists. On my return to the UK I would love to be a host as I think it would be great to show a new friend around my city.

Music, Movies, and Books

Blood Diamond, Gladiator, Troy, 300, Braveheart, Lord of the Rings, The Shining, The Beach, True Romance, The Deer Hunter, Limitless, James Bond, All World Cinema, This list could go on for years. I love all types of music, soundtracks especially! I hate to admit it but I don't actually read books. I prefer watching films and documentaries as this is the only way I actually take the information in.
