About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Offering newcomers advice and information about life in Birmingham

ABOUT ME

I'm a casual, laid back and open minded person. I believe in finding balance in everything I do but that doesn't mean that there aren't exceptions to that rule. That being said I appreciate people form all walks of life and I value an intelligent conversation no matter what race, gender, sexual orientation or political conviction you might have. Please use the word LULU in the title of your couchrequest to make sure I accept it. It's not just about free accommodation. I'd like to know you've read my profile and are genuinely interested in meeting new people.

PHILOSOPHY

you cannot contain me in one phrase.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I cook, I laugh, I drink a glass of wine, I listen to music, I dream ... surrounded by people. I share. If you're looking to move to Birmingham I can give you helpful advice!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've mostly been a host up to now and I recommend couch surfing to everybody. It's a life changing experience if you're an open minded person, that is. If you're not you will become one after one or two experiences :)

Interests

I enjoy traveling and meeting new people, discovering new music and going to the theatre or films. I'm a prisoner of delicious home made food and won't give it up for the the freedom of fast food. Spending time in the kitchen preparing meals for friendly gatherings is one of my favourite past time activities, apart from practicing Pilates and preaching about its health benefits. Proud owner of tattoos, although I'm not an advocate of 'the skin is a canvas' philosophy.

Music, Movies & Books

The Coen Brothers, Tim Burton, Tarantino, Von Trier, Gus van Sant; Michael Cunningham, Nick Hornby, Murakami, Baricco, Coldplay, Aerosmith, Pink Floyd, Lenny Kravitz, Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Salsa and Samba music, etcetcetc

One Amazing Thing I've Done

My amazing story I guess would be going on a Europe Tour, all by myself, hosted by the friends I've made on the way, so in a strange way I have already been surfing only I didn't know its name 'till now. I underwent a trip of discovery not only of beautiful places and people but also of my self.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you're looking to move to Birmingham I can help you. I can assist you in finding a place to stay, give you tips about finding a job, opening up a bank account and other such things. Don't hesitate to ask me even if I'm not available to host you! I can still show you around Birmingham when you are here and keep in touch via e-mail. I would appreciate a mention in my reference about the help I provide (if indeed you felt that I helped you).
