About Me

ABOUT ME

Back from a Scandanavian summer and ready for hosting or meet-ups!

So, I'm easy going, up for a laugh, excitable, sociable, love sharing good things, smiling and don't take things too seriously!

I've been around a bit over the last year or so, barely a few weeks have gone by without me packing my backpack or panniers and journeying about.

I'm based in London now working as a translator and some other bits and bobs. Potentially can host but also up for adventures or tea or cycling or whatever!

PHILOSOPHY

If you go to a country as a conqueror you are going to get shot at.

If you go as a tourist you are going to get ripped off.

But if you go as a friend chances are that you will be welcomed as a friend.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host when I can, get hosted when I'm welcome and try to spread this wonderful idea and open some minds :)

I'm more than happy to meet up for some tea or whatever and have a chat!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My first experience of hosting was helping out Ken, a japanese music student who stumbled into the bar where i worked, soaking wet, missed his train and unable to find a hotel. He joined in our staff party, we took him out and he crashed at mine. This trust and openness that I have experienced from complete strangers through CS has helped be more carefree and spontaneous!

I properly got into it in 2009 when I studied in Spain and got put up by fantastic folk whilst I got settled. I had the luck of living in an amazing international flat and it was rude not to fill the space we had with wonderful people!

I've met some fantastic people, ran into some mind blowing coincidences and been totally inspired from this idea and the people I've come across.

Interests

travel, surfing, messing about, learning languages, cooking, music (in any form :p), hockey, tents, guitar, didgeridoo, busking, hitchhiking, cycle touring.

I love music first and foremost, playing, listening, jamming, watching, busking...all of it. I love to cook and even more so to share the fruits of my labour. I'm a social creature and enjoy to be around humanity. Country boy at heart, enjoy the greenery and the mountains, especially the beach and the ocean. Couldn't be happier than cosy in a tent with some good friends.

Music, Movies & Books

Music, so I'm rarely seen without a guitar in my hand. I play didgeridoo, harmonica and banjo as well, so if you're up for a jam then so am I!

There's a fair few instruments knocking about my room, bring some more and we'll have a play about.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

hitched a ride in a dumper truck in morocco

couchsurfed a cave with some truly inspiring people!

Cycled form the UK to Morocco in August 2011 with 11 other bloody crazy nutters.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some guitar, how to circular breathe and play the didgeridoo and harmonica.

I would love to learn more music so if you have any crazy instruments you are more than welcome in my house!

Also i'd love to hear if anyones been busking or hitching round europe as thats my summer plan, would love to hear some tips!

I always love to practice spanish so if you fancy a chat en español then I would love that!
