Looking for my place in the world
Well.... I am from Northern Ireland originally, but grew up in northern England. I work in Accountancy but have also but have worked in a Hospice, Hospital, Casino, Bank, Coffee Shop, Construction site, Strip Club (behind the bar!) to name a few. I surfed my way across the USA this year and it was probably the best thing I have ever done. I hope to do it again the future and would gladly host anyone wishing to surf with me when it is possible.
Life goes on.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Unfortunately I am currently doing a bit of surfing of my own on friends couches, as I don't currently have my own place, so can't host anyone. I'm in Australia now so will be looking to meet people out there, so if you are in Victoria/NSW give me a shout.
Wowed by the hospitality I was shown.
Things I like: cooking, eating, music, going to places I havent been before, tidiness, science, random facts, books, ants.
I don't enjoy: Rude people, mess, forced social situations, grey days.
