Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Joe’s full profile.
I was born and raised in the UK but have just returned to Europe after spending the past six years living in Latin America.
Porto, Portugal, has been my home since October 2020.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've found that the CS meetups are a good way to meet up with like-minded people when you arrive in a city on your own.
I have couchsurfed in Fiji and Argentina and hosted while I was living in Panama and Colombia.
Travel, music, books, writing, food, football, trekking, mountain biking, surfing, beer, rum, chess, poker.
Music, Movies, and Books
Music is my biggest passion (after travel) in life. I listen to lots of different genres - it all depends on my mood and the setting. At the moment I am listening mostly to techno (slightly perverse given that electronic music parties are probably the last thing that will be opened again post-pandemic), hip-hop and rock.
Have enjoyed books by Chekhov, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Murakami, Kafka, Tom Wolfe, Bukowski.
And if it's non-fiction then philosophy, psychology, politics (just don't mention Brexit!), economics, history.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
10 days trekking alone in Patagonia.
