About Me


To save the world from myself


Officially, I'm the world's only Living Saint. Though I look like an angel, I'm not. I'm actually a High Priest in the Church of Hypocrisy preaching water while drinking wine. When not practising heavy drinking for journalists, I am working on a bestseller which will re-write the history of WWII. After that I will re-write the Bible, the Kamasutra and correct errors in Einstein's Theory of Relativity.

STRENGTHS: as an ex-fighter pilot, multiple Nobel Prize winner and Olympic gold medallist in all disciplines, I AM SICK AND TIRED OF BULLSHIT ARTISTS.

WEAKNESSES (if any): too modest, too shy, too humble.

Now if that ain't practising what I preach.


"What good I can do, therefore let me do it, for I shall not pass this way again." French Quaker missionary Stephen Grellet.

"What we know is a drop, what we don't know is an ocean." Sir Isaac Newton

Right thoughts; respect; non-violence and non-materialism. Siddharta Guatama (Buddha)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Recruiting for Alcoholics Anonymous


Have not got my wings yet.


Drinking Earl Grey tea in the morning after a hard night's reading, drinking, talking, relaxing, dreaming, sleeping, making mistakes, learning, etc etc.

Music, Movies, and Books


- Great voices (Harry Secombe's arias! Maddy Prior, Elvis etc). Calming classical music. Steppenwolf's "Get your motor running." Bagpipes. The sound of railway locomotives.

- Great speeches/rhetoric (Churchill, Kennedy et al).

- Great movies ( Chaplin's "The Great Dictator").

- Great writing (Bertrand Russell on religion, Marc Aurel's "Self Reflections"; Viktor Klemperer's "LTI" (misuse of the German language in the Third Reich) etc etc

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbing Mt Everest in a wheelchair with no brakes and a broken arm in 15 kilos of plaster.

Discovering the spice chile in Mexico. With a tad of this atomic herb, I can eat boots, truck tyres and concrete pylons. Chile eyedrops are great too.

Teach, Learn, Share

Great Gurus: Lech Walesa.

I once interviewed Lech Walesa in Gdansk. I asked the great Solidarity leader what he thought of prostitution after his son had been caught in Gdansk's magnificent/infamous three-storey "Bodega" brothel: "We must fight good with evil," said Walesa. Walesa's non-stop barrage of legendary homespun wisdoms had so confused the translator she got his reply back-to-front. But Walesa even confuses himself. As President of Poland, Walesa promised to cut the cost of living by 100%. Against Walesa, communism never stood a chance.
