About Me


Trying to enjoy Britain after living overseas.


After a disapointing education of Leisure Managment and Tourism,I gained further knowledge in these fields and positively graduated by travelling on and off for the past 14 years or so. There's been tears, laughter, hairy moments, something for all the family.
Currently trying to find work decent work with a questionable cv is, which proving a tad awkward.
Also I'm not very tall, long hair, currently partially tanned.


If you ever feel like you are living life well and people are jealous, that's a good thing. If things aren't going so well and people are still jealous, that's good too!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Currently travelling, but when back at home like to meet up with people even though I may not be able to host them.
I travel a lot, so on occasion stay with people, but really like the meet up's, group activities as well as meeting random couch surfers.


OOdles! I believe I invented it! However using CS I've surfed in California, Western Canada, Hawaii, Eastern and Western Europe and a wee smidge in Bristol and Bath.


Too many. My top things are outdoor sports, many types of music, really like travelling and meeting people (a lot). I'm always open to new things within reason and always like a new challenge.

Music, Movies, and Books

Books, historical fiction or comedy.
Music, not country and western, spaz jazz, or most pop (haven't liked any chart music so far in the last 4 years), anything else I'm pretty open with.
Movies, anything with action, explosions and the obligatory busty women, however a story is nice too.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One special moment that jumps out is a time in Tibet, travelling alone and managed to hitchike on the wrong road for around 2 weeks! Very special.
This is a good opportunity for me to point out that if you have a short attention span, but are either pig headed, too tight with the money or just not so bright, the purchasing of maps is actually quite a good investment.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm looking for a bit of fun, meeting loads of people, always want to hear new music and maybe find a place where I would like to live, settle down, grow a beard and keep Lammas.
What I can give are teachings in complementary therapy, my head is full of jokes and I'm a dab hand at washing up. I really don't mind helping cook, however am still at an elementary school boy level.
