About Me

Hi Im Fergus. Im an Irishman living in Iceland. I'm a traveller at heart and I like to connect with other travellers when I'm settled.
I'm fascinated by the diversity of life and I want in some way to try and appreciate as much of it as I can before the sun sets.
I really like languages and the doors they can open. I hope to pick up some more over the years.
Im a big lover of food. One of the great pleasures in life. If you can cook you can stay :D
But really just trying to make sense of and find the balance in this wild ride we're on.


Carpe Diem; Try anything once, Don't judge a book by its cover, 2nd chances but not 3rd, One thing leads to another so get busy...;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I wanna connect with people and enjoy life in ways that don't exist in 'normal' life. It's a beautiful thing to be offered a room with no expectations and complete trust. I stayed with a few people between Colombia, Brazil and Bolivia. I also stayed in a couples VW campervan in Biarritz.
Last year Ispent 2 nights in Nashville and 2 nights in New Orleans.

I've hosted a lot of people over the years both on Couchsurfing and Airbnb. I love being a host. It's a real pleasure. Would love to open a hostel with a bar someday
