Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Anything that makes me think.

Music: Quite an extensive list. You'd have to be sitting comfortably on a couch for this one really ;-)

Books: Same as movies.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sunrise atop Mt. Fuji. Epic!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share: Music, maths/physics (if that's what you came on holiday for), homebrew tips, origami (hell yes), juggling with more than 3 balls, how to successfully maintain the health of bonsai trees, chess, what not to leave under a motorbike seat whilst travelling (learned the hard way) and other travel sagas.

Would like to learn: How to cook unusual things, what goes on in the minds of creationists, whether or not I should desert the UK indefinitely in search of fairer lands, and pretty much everything else.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Shelter, food, beer, banter.
