About Me

My wife (Nicola) and I got married on the 19th of July 2014 and left the UK on the 26th of December to embark on our 6 and half month honeymoon. As part of our trip we have/will be travelling New Zealand, Australia and South East Asia.

We both studied sport and exercise science at undergraduate and postgraduate level at the University of Chester and, unsurprisingly, have a keen interest in sport and physical activity. We also enjoy socialising and have already met some great people on our travels.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing is something that we would like to try as it seems like a great way to travel and meet new (local) people.
