I am a writer, an explorer, a lover of travel and foreignness (is that a word?) and adventure.
I wrote a book which went to number one on amazon. You can see it and read the reviews here.
I am a discover, creator and an unconventional thinker.
I love scuba diving, kitesurfing, playing the guitar and above all meeting cool people all over the world.
Are you cool? Then maybe we can meet somewhere along the road.
We live in a world in which they framework in which we relate to each other in sexual relationships is fundamentally broken (which is why relationships don't work).
My mission is to fix it.
Paint YOUR life.
Not anyone else's life.
Whenever you make a life choice about your job, career, sex life, friends, travel or anything else under pressure from other people, you are submitting to duress and you are not living your own life.
As Steve Jobs said - "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking."
Another quote I like which I saw recently :
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing."
Make sure every brush stroke on the canvas of your life is YOURS and nobody else is holding your wrist and making your brush strokes into theirs.
You only get one canvas after all.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Mostly socialising and occasionally surfing
Met lots of cool people.
Humour and the absurd, good comedy shows, beauty in all its forms, a good lounge bar, a well made mojito, football, good spicy noodle soups ...
And above all .... the truth
Music, Movies, and Books
Am reading "stranger in a strange land" right now.
I also wrote a book called "Sex 3.0 - A Sexual Revolution Manual" which I researched and wrote when I did a complete circumnavigation of the globe.
The circumnavigation of the globe took 2 years and 3 months and took in S.America, the USA, Australia, most of SE Asia, parts of the Indian subcontinent and Middle East as well as both Eastern and Western Europe.
A lot of the people I met and interviewed for research whilst travelling and writing the book were couch surfers so in many ways, Sex 3.0 is a splinter project from couch surfing.
