Join Couchsurfing to see David’s full profile.
Spend a few years after school much. Since then I’ve been really enjoying life and trying to make the most of it.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I'm hoping that when I use it when I'm away I'll make friends that I can show around when they come to Ireland.
Then also the normal things like getting to know people from different cultures etc
I live by the seaside so spend a lot of time swimming, kayaking and cycling or just sitting around. I read a lot and go to gigs whenever a good one is on.
Extremely into cooking
Quite interested in bushcraft skills, spoon carving and camping. Hiking and hillwalking...anything outdoors
Always get excited when I read articles about new discoveries in space
Cooking- Vegetarian, Indian, Vietnamese, Japanese (unfortunately Ireland doesn't have much of a culinary culture)
I love cycling, it's my favourite way to travel, either commuting or going across countries. Trains second.
Want to learn freediving
- human rights
- live music
- outdoor activities
- cultural studies
Music, Movies, and Books
Books: loads, but trying to read more contemporary Irish and non-western authors.
Movies: Too many, mostly independent cinema but no problem watching Hollywood, superhero films or Disney.
Music: Joanna Newsom, Kevin Morby, Boubacar Traore, Fleet Foxes, Nick Cave, Bill Callahan, a lot of Irish traditional
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Cycled across Eastern Europe to raise money for Amnesty International. 4,000km - 10 countries - 40 days
Got 8 friends to hike up to a river with a projector, set up a screen between the trees and watched concerts while getting drunk and dancing
Teach, Learn, Share
Stories and cooking
Unfortunately I'm tone deaf and haven't been able to learn any instruments.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Have a lot of strange and funny stories (especially about Irish life)
Generally good company, always up for any active adventures
Pretty content person, and I'm told easy to be around.
Definitely can help with any cooking or eating.
