About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To have adventures

ABOUT ME

I like the Good Times

PHILOSOPHY

It's short so enjoy it while you can. Do new things, seize opportunities when they arise: any amount of crazy things could be happen if you're open to them, go with your gut feeling on everything, live bravely, appreciate things, stop and look at things, especially things that wouldn't normally catch your attention. Be kind and treat people well. Give people the benefit of the doubt. Don't bitch: focus on the good.. life can be so ugly and so beautiful and our perception of it is what makes our reality (I'm not always so good at the not bitching part, but I try..)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Surfing and hosting. We often host people we meet while on holiday who then come back and stay with us when they're passing through, rather than through Couchsurfing, but this is good too!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Mainly good, exceptional in places.

Interests

travelling, writing, learning new languages, reading, going on adventures in the middle of the night, cooking, eating, drinking, brewing.. I make my own cider, wine and beer!, meeting new people, dancing dancing, knitting, partying, climbing, walking, camping, listening to music..

Music, Movies & Books

Good ones

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I experienced some amazing hospitality in Turkey, me and my friend Pete got invited into people's houses when we were cycling around some tiny villages made out of caves. And Pete got stopped by guys in uniforms when we were cycling past a prison/military type place (I forget which it was, it just looked intimidating. I was a fair way behind because I'm an awful cyclist) and I thought something horrible was going to happen and then they gave him watermelon! I like being reminded of how kind people can be.

There's this hole in the ground that we used to go to in Sheffield (It's now been covered over) to talk and drink in. It's a tunnel about 20 feet down a manhole and we would sit around surrounded by candles and have good times aplenty. It was very lovely in there. I liked that such a cool place could exist right in the middle of the city and still be a secret.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to make your own alcohol (a good skill to have) and how to knit and how to mkae bunting. And how to find things in bins, though that's pretty self explanatory, isn't it? And I'm pretty sure I could dread your hair, with a couple of helpers and a brave scalp and lots of time on your part (a few hours)

Countries I've Visited
