About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see as much of the world as possible, albeit on a budget.

ABOUT ME

I'm a laidback person who loves to travel. I am coming to the end of my PhD studies, and want to explore a little bit before I embark on the next phase of my life.
I am liberal in my attitude to life and enjoy having interesting conversations over coffee or beer.

PHILOSOPHY

My travel philosophy; whenever I miss visiting something in a city I have been to, I use it as an excuse to go back in the future.
My personal philosophy; take life as it comes and don't worry over the unimportant things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I'm new to this, so no experience yet, I'm hoping to meet great people! A couple of my friends have couch surfed and have always had very positive experiences.

Interests

As a hobby I enjoy photography, especially of the new places I visit. I love to attempt to speak new languages and learn from native speakers, although I apologise now for butchering your native tongue. When visiting places I like to walk, look, enjoy, generally take in the atmosphere and appreciate my surroundings.

Music, Movies, and Books

I will listen to almost any kind of music, but I am particularly into rock, punk, indie. If you can recommend new music to me I would be very grateful! Take a look at my music tastes here: last.fm/user/bazman1987

I will watch most films and will happily read a book that comes with a good recommendation.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Narrowing it down to just one is difficult. By far the eeriest thing I have done was to visit the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, a very strange and poignant place.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am distinctly rubbish at playing the guitar, I would love to learn but time has never been on my side. I am happy to learn new things, regardless of what they are, surprise me!
