About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Tianjin

ABOUT ME

Open and easy going 23 year old. Keen to meet new friends, learn something about where they are from and enjoy interesting, unfamiliar experiences!

I grew up in Yokohama, Japan and then England when my family moved. I have passion for traveling and exploring new places. In 2011 I rode the trans-mongolian railway from Europe to China. It was an amazing journey and one which I will not soon forget.

More recently I've become obsessed with dance music - House, Techno, Disco, Funk etc. When not at work you can usually find me diggin for new records or spending time with friends.

PHILOSOPHY

-If you work hard enough and assert yourself, and use your mind and imagination, you can shape the world to your desires, MG-Travel solo but never alone-Be the change you want to see-Real friendships start from the first goodbye-Stereotypes, while sometimes true in theory, shouldn't be relied upon in practice-Few things counteract ignorance as well as being exposed to different cultures, ways of thinking and experiences.-Never lose interest in the world around you, MP

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've surfed more than I've hosted but that is hopefully changing now

I try to spread the word of CouchSurfing whenever I can

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Been doing it for over 4 years, although less active the last year then I wanted to be. Without a doubt CS has changed me for the better. The people I've met and the memories I've created with them will last a lifetime!

Interests

Traveling because "travel is not about getting from point A to point B. At best that's tourism--at worst transportation--across a more or less sterile landscape. Real travel is about soaking up the local flavor, getting a sense of other people's lives, and their history."

Currently I am trying to improve my mixing abilities. I am also a bona fide music lover

Music, Movies & Books

To relax I like mix music and watch quality movies.

Travel Documentaries such as The Long Way Round/Down are a personal favourite! I got addicted to Micheal Palin's Travel Videos which I find to be fantastic

Recently I've enjoyed reading work by Alain de Botton

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Played a spontaneous game of Street Cricket with local children in Kolkata, India

Teach, Learn, Share

I know several good magic card tricks that I would be more then willing to show potential couch surfers if interested!

As well as this I can teach you how to fold a perfect origami crane.

I also cook a mean carbonara.
