About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Please come to shropshire !! its lovelly!!!

ABOUT ME

Enthusiastic Easygoing Outgoing, the glass is half full kind of guy. Most of this comes from being raised by two hippy parents. Travelled independently to many places in the world roughing it with my dad. I love the outdoors, really into my photography. I Love music and can play guitar (Gibson SG with Bigsby whammy bar), I use to be a really good but when I got my job about 7 years ago I pretty much totally stooped playing so I'm barley an amateur now. I'm a keen runner and try my best to run 5K every weekday night.

PHILOSOPHY

Speak your mind!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

-Organize outings in a nomadic kind of way as i have been traveling for 8 months and its impossible to get any couchsurfers into Shropshire
-Attending as many meetings as possible!
-Surfing peoples couches and trying to leave behind as many tatty gifts from the last country i was in as a thank you!
-Converting travelers i feel are worthy enough to join our lovely CS Community
-i seam to be the hub of Trans Siberian information so if u need info on visas, tickets, routes etc then ask away!

-spending two weeks with sabina and her friends in the gobi desert in Monglia and having to go into a -30'c snowstorm to use the toilet, and also learning if someone has more bad references than good ones does not mean its a bad idea to meet up with them!! WE LOVE YOU SABINA!!!!
