Join Couchsurfing to see John’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm an English teacher who loves country/mountain hiking, swimming, reading (I'm studying for an English Literature degree in my spare time), photography, good food, wine and beer... and the occasional party.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Coz I love travelling - meeting new people and having new experiences - and life is too short to spend it looking through the window of a 5 star hotel wondering why it looks just like all the others.
I have a great love of travelling, and enjoy visiting unusual destinations and discovering new people, places and culture. As an Englishman living and working in the centre of Europe I miss the ocean, so sometimes take to the high seas too when life allows me the time and opportunity.
Music, Movies, and Books
Most music as long as it is live, any book which makes me think, and any film not including the words 'fifty' or 'shades' in the title.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Watched a solar eclipse from the top of mountain in the Altai.
Teach, Learn, Share
Well - I teach English every day - my aim is never to stop learning - and sharing life with as many interesting people as I can find.
