Just moved to Beziers and am renovating a little base for myself here, London Feb–April, should be able to host thereafter, though best send requests nearer the time ;)
I'm planning a 2–3 day hike in the Pyrenees from Perpignan involving taking dips in an icy lake and secret hot springs. Ping me if you'd like to join and I might try and solidify the plan…
Putting it together, pulling it apart
I enjoy life, from rouging it travelling (bucket showers--whoohoo!) and absorbing places, but also a bit of the sybaritic lifestyle. Mostly I hark from London, but I've lived here and there… most recently based in India mucking about with startup/coworking/coliving stuff, but originally a graphic/web guy who quit to became an overly optimistic entrepreneur.
It's probably fair to say I'm somebody who alternates between being absorbed by work and complacent loafing. I deeply appreciate all things (except giant cockroaches, and leeches), especially stinky cheese...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
It's all a blur.
Teach, Learn, Share
I have broad software/UX knowledge and am particularly happy to share. I may even be able to host you for longer for some hands-on training. I can also give input to some extent on branding, marketing, retail, ethical and other aspects of startups and entrepreneurialism.
I have some future project in Beziers and Morocco if you fancy coming back to help :)
