About Me


Work, study, save, play


Ergh. Nerdy (as in bookish, not star trek), introverted (as in philosophical, not goth) , quirky (as in "what the hell is he on about this time?").
I like dinosaurs and other petrified things.
I have a telescope.
I spend too much time on computers.
I keep getting suckered into going up mountains.


It should be fun. It might be a bit hard at first - but if it's not fun, you should do it different, or just stop. Go do something else.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Errr.... I just signed up here.


I'm a complete newbie at this.


Oh what? I said that in the All about you bit! Fine fine. Mountain biking, hiking, diving, hiking, swimming in (warm!) natural bodies of water, hiking.
THE SUN! I looooove the SUN!
