Im a London based cyclist and traveller that is just about to embark on a tour of New Zealand.
I've spent the previous year converting a campervan into a home, which I then packed up and hit the road over winter, heading into France and Spain meeting and cycling with people I met.
This gave me a big taste for New Zealand and something I want to replicate on my year-long journey.
Im heading to Auckland to start my trip and bringing my bike (in a box) to settle down, find some work and buy myself a campervan.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
After using couchsurfing in various locations over the years, there is nothing complicated about why I am on couch surfing.
To meet new people.
Its really that simple. Being hosted or hosting goes well beyond just having a place to stay. Its a warm comfort, like a distant friend helping you out, so you can feel relaxed and ensured enough to enjoy the rest of your journey.
I've been a bit of a career junkie for a while, and only last year decided to change my life.
I put a lot of my savings into buying a big white van and turning it into a small home, so I could get on the road and enjoy travelling.
Cycling is a big thing for me, so I look to involve it in mostly all the things I do.
