New cities, new experiences
I am fortunate that my bizarre career means that I get to travel a lot and live where I want. I sometimes forget how lucky this makes me.
I wear hats. I play cards. I eat cheese. I listen to post punk and electronic music. I still haven't been to the gym. I eat pies in North Bar. I like primary colours. I am seduced by the beauty of televised bowls.
Fortunately I rarely need to get up before noon.
I'm really quite taken by this whole couchsurfing thing. I've met some lovely people and had my travel experiences greatly enriched. I still feel like I'm in karma debt, so if you are in my city and need a hand with something or want to say hi, then send me a message. I'll try and answer everything as long as it isn't a copy/paste job. My forthcoming biography will be entitled 'I sold my fridge to a Rastafarian Meatloaf fan'

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've surfed quite a few places. I've hosted. I organised a CS event attended by over 50 people and I've sublet CSers apartments several times.
