About Me


Find the best place on earth to live.


So the world is a large. Huge. And There are many exciting places to visit. We are half way through our plan to find the best place to set up 'Home'

England 8 out of 10
London is the best city in the world. A leader in Entertainment and culture. Home

Vancouver 7/10
Beautiful. Like crazy Beautiful. But the people are too nice and there are too many Stabucks

Sydney Status Pending
Only just got here. It is hot though

I am an appreciator of the finer things, nice wine, good cheese, strong coffee, beautiful scenery, real theatre and long journeys. Most importantly great company.


Life must change from time to time if we are to go foward in our thinking.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I Host. I surf. I join up with other CS for dinners e.c.t
I first surfed in Canada and from then have been hocked. Also Hosted along with my house mates in Vancouver. Hosting is great, you really understand how to write a Couch request.


I could not belive the generosity and trusting nature of my first hosts. They let us stay, cooked for us and became good friends.


Aside from day to day necessities any form of live entertainment, theatre, opera, music, with a perticular liking of dance.
Of course travelling, seeing new places and meeting new people.
I like to be active and enjoy running and hiking.

Music, Movies, and Books

With music, I like almost anything and will go, if the ticket is free, to see anyone live.
I love any film with Clair Danns in, which is not many!
With books, douglas Adams is the greatest Author to have ever lived....Dont panic
