About Me

Interested in meeting new people. Friendly (or so Ive been told) but perhaps speaks too much when I dont know someone well. I do calm down though when I feel more comfortable in a persons company.
I have a great love of sharing knowledge and have been giving free tours of my city (when time permits) for many years now. Its nice to show people some places they wont see on a normal tour. Of course visiting some historic pubs is a good way to share knowledge too ;-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet up with similar people who want to give an insight to their city and vice versa. Seeing your own city through new is enlightening and also gaining an insight to a city youve visited several times is also wonderful


Reading good books, music: everything from classical to rock and all in between....nature and wild foods, brewing and cooking (inter related I suppose) and a touch of spiritual view of life :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Mostly classic books and those of central and eastern European authors. Art house films but also lighter ones like comedies of Woody Allen, Zucker brothers and Mel Brookes.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I got stung by one of my bees and looked like Mick Jagger for a few hours, drank a pint of my beer and swallowed a slug in it, jumped over a bonfire without setting my pants on fire, peed in the same trough as George Lucas....read Ulysses finally (ok that is more than one but none of them are all that spectacular)

Countries I’ve Visited

Belarus, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Lithuania, Mexico, Poland, Romania, Russian Federation, Slovakia, Ukraine, United States
