Join Couchsurfing to see Gareth’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm a fairly easy going guy. I can be a bit shy at the beginning, but can be fairly talkative after introductions are made. I like to talk about films, books, TV, history and cities. And many other topics of the day.
I really enjoy travelling, I've studied on semester in Havana and Lausanne. Then I took some time to see the US, Canada, Mexico, Greece and Israel.
I lived in Cape Town - for me it's the best place in the world.
I live and teach in Paris. I spend three nights a week there and the rest of the time I'm traveling in Europe.
I'm currently seeing more of Europe (Germany, France, Belgiun) and in the future I'd like to travel to Australia.
I think you should treat others in the way you would want to be treated yourself.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've couchsurfed in Lausanne and I've met some cool people through couch surfing parties, in Spain and in Montreal.
I really enjoy checking out a good movie, swimming, current events and hearing new music.
