What can I say - well probably allot as I seem to have an ability to talk on any subject(whether I am right or wrong is another matter). I am pretty easy going -a little quirky in my opinions and absolutely love a decent conversation, and sorry but hate chit chat, life is too short.
Don't really have one, live and let live I guess and seldom seen much admired! I cant bare stingy (miserable)Skinflint people especially the ones who are sneaky about it.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Couch surfers is just the best, I suppose I don't have to explain how great the site is to CS but for those who don't know, just surf the site and find out, I am absolutely obsessed with travel. However the job only allows me to get away for short periods, loved the experience of cramming the equivalent of one year living in a foreign place simply by having a great conversation and asking the right questions when staying with a host for one or two nights, I think this site and any more like it are better than any peace treaties out there, long live open doors!
I have both hosted and surfed and have had nothing but brilliant experiences with this site and global freeloaders a similar site. As a lone traveller for much of the time I can honestly say hand on heart I had nothing but one experience better than the other. The world is full of amazing people. I just wish I had used it in all my countries, its not about saving money or scrimping but getting that opportunity to make a stranger your friend, and forging international relations. I think the only way to ever really experience a country is not through luxury guided tours or high class hotels, its through talking to the countrys locals and seeing daily life through their eyes. Tours and hotels have their merits but its the people that make long lasting impressions and form memories.
Travel needless to say, I love sport esp running and kick boxing(by the way I am not good at the later and constantly pick up injuries with the former don't you go getting any illusions i am super fit or anything), history and languages, languages only cause I would love to be good at them and admire anyone who has more than one or two, by the way I am not good at languages.
- international relations
Music, Movies, and Books
Any of the classics, and Gone with the Wind and North and South. Music Edith Piaf, Mano Chao, Ben Harper, Tracy Chapman, pretty much anything.

Teach, Learn, Share
I don't know what I could teach anyone but I love to learn so maybe someone would learn something when teaching me.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Hmm my thoughts! my genius - LOL. I'm going to be honest though. I will never share my chocolate, it's pretty non negotiable so it's best we are clear from the outset.
