About Me


My mission to meet some great interesting ordinary whatever people


I love travel and experiencing a place through its people ..and hate "the see the sights" thing of "doing places."..which so often is missing in the most important element, people.
Have lived outside my native Australia for so many years I often feel stateless. lol

I'm a serious type but quite friendly and open. I am perhaps more of an intellectual type. Like to talk about politics and ideas and ideals. I'm allergic to CATS.


I want to remember that death is coming and that my life is more than security and money and going to work and coming home!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have to confess I'm ulterior in motive in that I'm in travel mode and not settled.


The times I travel I always look for opportunities to meet people. Nothing like actually meeting the locals!


Travel, seeing new places and things. Documentaries. News junky in fact. Ideas, politics, love and pain and the whole damn thing.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like music of all types. Historical drama, documentary, something with a theme to consider, and more than just entertaining.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Travelled and lived in India in 1997,saw a Kuma Mela, a gathering of people on pilgrimage from all over India to Haridwar on the Ganges. This was an experience I will never forget. Again am in India, already 17 months, this time.
