About Me


Ride around the world, learning and having fun all the way


Basically, I'm living my dream right now. Riding a bike around the world for two years. Sometimes I cant believe its true! I get to travel and broaden my horizons as well as practice motorbike mechanics and off-road skills.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My trip is quite a long one, 2-3 years away from home, so I cant really be a host but who knows? Maybe I'll make some places my home along the way.


I'm relatively new to CS, but I've always enjoyed being hosted by the many fantastic people I have met around the world.


I love motorbiking and traveling (hence the current trip) and learning languages. I play guitar, sing and have just started to learn blues harmonica (the ultimate portable musical instrument).

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies are too many to mention, but a couple of obvious ones are: Aliens, Carlto's way.

Books: Catch 22, One flew over the cookoo's nest, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy any Graham Green or George Orwell.

Music: Everything thats good. Blues, Jazz, Funk, Rock Reggae, Electronica, (Techno, Drum and Bass, House) Hip Hop, Classical. Party tunes! (well maybe classical isnt party tunes but depends on the party I guess).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've crossed Africa on a motorbike!
