About Me


To Travel & See as many parts of the World as possible.


I am a very outgoing, lively, easy to get along with, honest young man. I can easly talk to new people & love to make new friends. I love to be in the Sea/Water as I am a professional Scuba diver (fully Certified) and have been for quite some time, over 10 years in fact. I have traveled a lot in the last three years mainly in Turkey. I would say approximately 75% of the last three years I have been in Turkey. I travelled Thailand for 3 Months last year & had the bigest adventure of my life, meeting some amazing friends along the way which i will never forget! I hope to travel/backpack Thailand/Asia again this year once i finish work in Turkey. I obviously hope to do some more coachsurfing along the way.!!


I live life to the full & dont regret anything i have done, I have made mistakes in the past & learnd by them thats the main thing. I feel i have to travel to see some of the world & discover places I never expected to ever get too, i am young free & single with no kids so why not!
