About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Growing a beard while I explore Sabah and Sarawak

ABOUT ME

Hello! My name is Conchúr (pronounced: kraw-hoor), I'm an 21 year old guy from Ireland. I'm a new face in the world of travel, and I zealously intend to spend the remainder of my life exploring the globe, learning languages and meeting all my fellow peace makers.

Peace!

PHILOSOPHY

"Hope for the best, prepare for the worst." - my father.

Interests

I love music! I play guitar and mandolin most of the time, but as an instrument collector I am also able to play sitar, banjo, bouzouki, pipa, ukulele and bodhrán. When I'm travelling I take a small flute or whistle to pass the time. I can play you something if you want :) I write poetry and other forms of literature. My main style is that of the American spoken word poets, but I sometimes try more classical forms. Languages have always fascinated me, and I plan to study them in University. I speak Irish fluently and am learning Italian and Spanish, but I would *love* to be taught even just a little bit of another language: whatever you speak, speak it to me please!

Music, Movies & Books

Books: "Seven Years in Tibet" by Heinrich Harrer, "In Watermelon Sugar" by Richard Brautigan, "Half of a Yellow Sun" by Chimamanda Ngosi Adechie, "The Life of Pi" by Yann Martel, "The Shadow of the Wind" by Carlos Ruiz Zafón, "Room" by Emma Donoghue, "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusack, "A Single Pebble" by John Hersey.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Staying up all night to see Saturn and its rings with the telescope. Playing to a whole village in the South of Italy late at night with my friends from the local area, Spain, Romania, and my home country. Getting lost in the forests of Andalusia.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach English and/or Irish Gaelic, and would love to learn a language you speak!

I can teach you to play the Irish whistle (I always have one or two when I travel), or just play if you like :)
