About Me

Hi! I'm Joel - I'm a bit of a creative who loves to travel. I live and work in Leeds City Centre, UK.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

After visiting a friend in Iceland earlier this year (2016) I have been interested in visiting other similar places, as I fell in love with the impressive locations I visited, but I also love hidden gems that not many people know about.

I already feel as if I am pretty good at photography, but would like to improve myself, as well as any opportunities to be creative.

I also feel like couch surfing will allow me to become more surrounded by the culture of the country I visit, since it is so easy to slip into tourism.


If you like anything creative, and/or heavy metal, we will get along just fine!

I love quiet places where I can soak up some nature, and some good food too.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favourite bands are mostly scandinavian - Ghost, Amaranthe, Turisas etc. but also I love Rammstein, Iron maiden (one of the UKs best exports!) and plenty others.

I could never say a favourite movie, as there are so many I adore. But I am a big fan of Christopher Lee, Gene Wilder and Robin Williams as actors. I also enjoy theatre but rarely visit.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I think the most amazing thing I have done was when I was in Iceland with my Icelandic friend, enjoying a geothermal river for a 4 hour bath. I loved the cold snow around me as I was kept toasty in the water. However, everything I did there was amazing.
