About Me


To travel to everywhere on earth,stopping for a beer and a chat occasionally.12 countries done ,couple of hundred to go .


Hi, Im a free spirited sort of guy who lives to experience new adventures. ive spent the last few years popping around the globe on the regular tourist trails and am planning to visit nepal in January 2012 and go where the winds blow me from there.Im a pretty handy sort of guy and like to try my hand at just about anything.I like to learn new languages as I go but dont seem to that good at it but practice will eventually make perfect .


I believe the world is an amazing place full of interesting people and places and and I like to focus on the positives of life.I believe in helping people whenever i can and learning as much as can about other peoples experiences.I dont believe in being scared of the unknown.I actually get excited by just turning up and finding out as I go.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Ive done some woofing work in Greece and Laos and Cambodia and enjoyed the experience of working and staying with a multitude of cultures.Id like to be part of the volunteer network in every country I go to as it is a hugely rewarding experience.


First time as a couch surfer but woofing and staying in many dorms over the years has prepared me i think.. i carry an abundant supply of aircraft quality earplugs in preparation for the inevitable snorefest..

Music, Movies, and Books

Books" True stories or anything like Bill Bryson
Clive Cussler,Matthew Reilly,jack De Brul,George Orwell
and many others.
Music"I have very eclectic tastes and enjoy pretty much
all music dependant on my mood.
Movies" not much of a TV watcher but the occasional action splatterfest is ok but a good travel doco sets me right.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Countries travelled to so far.
Australia extensively.
Maylasia especially Perhentienne Islands.
Thailand and particularly during the songkran festivals
Cambodia and sihanoukville and working on the islands
Laos was just amazing throughout.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to share my travel experiences with others including the perils n pitfalls as well as the amazing offbeat things ive seen n done. i believe that you never stop learning and its kinda fun anyway..I love this quote " It wasnt until I knew everything,that I started to learn anything" not sure who said it but I love it
