About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Pep Morell, "Mission?!?!?!?"

ABOUT ME

My wife (http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/nathylarson/) and I just moved to Australia after three and a half months traveling around SE Asia! I am in love with food and am a cook. I love to be in the kitchen, and I love all types of food. I want to learn as much as I can about all types of food and try everything. My other passion is photography. I love it! I studied photography in Australia and really enjoyed it! Beer, especially the ones the Belgians make, it doesn't get any better!

PHILOSOPHY

Keep life simple.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've stayed at quite a few people's places now and I've also hosted quite a few people. I love CS!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couchsurfing is absolutely incredible! I have met many amazing people through couchsurfing and now believe that couchsurfing is the only way to travel!

Interests

Cooking, photography, brewing beer, music, books, movies, friends and having a good beer.

Music, Movies & Books

All types of music, definitely not one particular genre. As I'm typing this I'm listening to Neil Young, definitely one of my favorites. Really love 60s, 70s psychedelic rock. Can and Apple are two bands from that genre that I love! All the classics, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones to name a few. Miles Davis, Coltrane, Monk are a few of my favorite Jazz musicians. Ghostface Killah is one of my favorite hip hop artists. I love music! As far as movies, I love them as well! Fellini, Jarmusch, Herzog. I love Zombie movies! Dawn of the Dead would probably have to be my favorite. For books, I love Charles Bukowski. Haruki Murakami. Henry Miller.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Jumped into a construction site one night on the way to a bar in Budapest with some friends. We had to go through to get to the bar!

Teach, Learn, Share

One piece of advice I have for new-comers to couchsurfing is really read people's profiles and make your messages personal.
