Join Couchsurfing to see Rory’s full profile.
I am a wandering thinker, forever seeking inspiration in the great and small things of life; and enjoying it when it comes.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I joined many years ago, and the same reason keeps me here: the people. I've met many beautiful characters, and made great friends; hopefully I've also helped out a few in need, travelling through foreign lands.
Anything with a bit of blues in it; yoga; classical literature; the outdoors! Walking / skiing / running / mountain biking / surfing (badly).

Music, Movies, and Books
My favourite book is Ulysses, and I am drawn to existential literature (Satre, Camus, Dostoevsky) and fusions of the two (Pynchon, Kazanstakis, DeLillo). For poetry, Neruda and Cummings.
I love movies that take time to tell their tale: Casablanca, Antonini, Kieslowski.
I listen to classical music for inspiration, jazz and soul when I'm cooking, and hiphop when I'm enjoying an evening. I once played trumpet in a soul band, and thoroughly enjoyed it.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Delivering twins on the shores of the Caribbean.
What I Can Share with Hosts
A well-travelled laugh and an interest in different perspectives. In Lucca, a sofa bed and interest in exploring the city together.
