About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To spend the winter in Portugal learning permaculture

ABOUT ME

I love to sing, dance, strum my guitar and ride my bike. I've made a few beautiful lovespoons out of oak and cherry and im trying out some beech. I used to work in the woodfuel industry and am interested to discover how we can develop communities self sufficient in wood fuel.

over the winter of 2012/13 I spent 4 months traveling around Mexico (big and beautiful) and Costa Rica (small and beautiful)... ah swimming in the Pacific and in a hot river pool....mmmmmm

In September 2011 I successfully completed the Great River Race. 21 miles up the Thames in under 3 hrs in a Celtic Longboat - Hurrah

I want to travel round Europe in a VW van - this is an looooong term dream..

I'm currently living in Bristol looking for new and intereting voluntary work.

I'm a qualified massage therapist - i'm enjoying developing this skill.

PHILOSOPHY

be considerate to your fellow beings....I'm alright...you're alright... keep trying and keep searching. Face my fears. Live in the moment. Listen to my body. forgive yourself.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

All positive experiences hosting and being hosted!! showing the surfers i have met around my part of the world has been a real pleasure - i have discovered that led zepalin wrote "Bron yr aur stomp" in a cottage they lived in just down the road.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Great to meet interesting people and to welcome them to this green and pleasant land. I enjoy the randomness of meeting new people and exchanging views and experiences. It's not without it challanges - communication is not always easy, but thus far I have been nourished and learnt much from my experiences

Interests

energy and society...people, history, buildings... the Dyfi estuary, kites, reading contemporary fiction. VW vans. The mad shapes of sand on the shore between the tides. seagulls. Fire. Qi gong - I recently went on a 10 day camp near Dartmoor - AMAZING.
I carve functional wooden spoons

Music, Movies & Books

Any Elvis film, the blues brothers and One flew over the cukoos nest. recently I injoyed "the lunchbox"

almost any music from Gospel to rock n roll via Ska...oh and Ween - drifter in the dark..check it out...oh and the spookymen's chorale. Johnny Cash

the catcher in the rye. just discovered a couple of Tom Robbins' books - highly entertaining.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Sailing into Tenby across carmarthen bay by moonlight. The Dyfi valley in flood.
Being a father of two amazing beautiful grown up people
