About Me

DISCLAIMER: for some reason when they updated their website to look the way it does now my couch response rate dropped to 0%. I did not have 100% but I can assure you I do respond!

CURRENT MISSION

Hmmm, living - really living!

ABOUT ME

Hey! Wel the first thing I can say is I hate filling in these "about you" bits. I never know how to condense myself and my life into these little boxes! But I guess you could say I'm always looking for fun! Dont believe the hype of success in the modern world, I believe happieness is far more important.

I'm quite political so will probably bore you with questions about wherever your from.

I'm interested in all interesting things and want to expand my knowledge of everything including other cultures and countries! Always good to meet new, like minded people! Erm... you can ask me anything else you wish!

PHILOSOPHY

To try and remember to live as I know I should but sometimes seem to forget.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have to apologise for the fact I am not verified but to be honest I dont really want to pay for that privilege! If you feel you need to find out more about me just message me and i'll send you some links to verify i'm not a psychopath. (well not the dangerous kind anyway! haha!)

My house has always been open to everyone. Until I joined CS its mainly been friends and friends of friends visiting from other countries but now after being hosted and also hosting people in London this shall be for life!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Being hosted on my extremely disorganised and wonderful hitching trip through Europe! (lost passports and money always add to the adventure?! Right?!)

And MEXICO. Met some friends for life through couchsurfing in Mexico.

Before couchsurfin i'd pretty much been doing that anyway! I'd stayed with friends of friends in barcelona, milan, berlin, oslo and new york. All have been great fun and I've met some amazing friends through it. Always grand to have a locals guide of the city!!
