Back to Europe in 2013... motorcycle tour!
Married to Penny who also comes from England (Kent), we have three great kids Joseph 20, Heidi 19 (Future Surgeon) and Richard who is 16. Heidi is back from France Now ... Stayed in Macon and Paris. Couch surfing has shown me the best of the world!
We have been a bit absent at late and would love to get back into it! That's what happens when you travel and send kids to Uni
I Love to have a glass of wine and watch the sun set from our front lawn, sometimes the kangaroos will be in the paddock. Penny is a Midwife who works in Neo Natal Intensive care so she really values her down time.
I Love collecting Militaria... and if you get me started I wont stop talking about it.... Anyone for dress ups?
If you like cooking or learning to cook - I will show you some great recipes - the captains cooking school is open!
Ramsey can cook but... I'm a better Cook! and i don't swear as much, actually I'm lying now, about the swearing
This Life turned out nothing that I had planned... It just gets better!
we are hitting Europe in 2014 again... 3 months, France, Belgium, Austria, Spain, Germany, Switzerland,Italy and them back to France and on to England... looking for Culinary hosts!
In fact any hosts!
Live today,,,,, avoid work as much as I can... In fact to avoid all work... I don't have a work philosophy... Sleep, eat and Travel. Continue with my weight loss!. I want to host as much as I can, don't take advantage of my hospitality.... embrace it!, its not free B&B, you have to contribute, your culture,your food, your life and your experiences!
We occupy less than a second on the history of the planet,,, leave a mark!, make a imprint! be remembered for something good
Life moves pretty fast.If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
As much as I can ...
retired from The Army (Captain in the Res) (50), proud of Adelaide and would love to show it off!
Australian and South East Asia Moderator for "Family Welcome Group".... and that's what it means Kids/ family are welcome!
We will nearly always let you surf, and show you around Adelaide.
Keen to be a host.... share a evening(s) of great conversation, great food and good wine.
If You have a motorcycle license.... I MAY lend you the Daytona or the Thruxton ..... MAY!!!!!!!
Only if you are a true Rocker Ton Up Boy!
Failing that.... Hang ON!... I will take you for A Ride!... High speed!, well probably slow speed
seriously... come for a ride in the Adelaide Hills...Lost of Fun (road rules observed at all times)
We have Hosted people from all over Europe,Asia, Canada and the United States and we have loved every minute of it, there is so much to share.We have developed so many strong Friendships that will continue. I know we are great hosts (Modest) so why not surf..... if you are evil and nasty.... goodbye
