About Me


Ecstatic Peace!


Hello jolly children of the universe. My name is Benjamin Howard and I was born in the spring of the summer of love.


Freedom! Independence! Visions!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I enjoy meeting interesting people home and away. Couch/inflatable double bed available, depending on my work shifts. Also available for coffees, meet ups, nights out again depending on shifts working at the time.


New to CouchSurfing website but extensive experience of sleeping on couches, sofas, setees, divans, floors and also beds.


Thinking, daydreaming, having ideas, writing but not finishing novels, sitcoms, children's books. Stand up comedy (beginner level), photography, Liverpool Football Club. Recreational conversation and adventures, new cities, futuristic airports, mountains, the woods, road trips, swimming in the sea, running around bookshops on coffee, learning new things, googling. Sleep in all forms, fresh sheets, a through breeze and a lie in on a Sunday morning. Intimate gigs and small festivals (ATP, End of the Road, Green Man, Pitchfork Paris, Airwaves Iceland). I love running, swimming, football, tennis and snowboarding but these days prefer to consult acupuncturists on a wide range of sports injuries that do not repair. Nature and the cosmos.

Music, Movies & Books

Motion pictures: Michel Gondry, Wes Anderson, Vinyl records: The Beatles and The Stones, Bjork, Animal Collective, Dylan, Efterklang, PIxies, King Tubby, The Smiths, Aphex Twin, Flaming Lips.
