About Me

My name is Mathew and I travel around with my fiancé Meg. I'm British and she is American. We enjoy exploring new countries and experiencing different cultures. I am a photographer with a Bachelors in Photography and love to capture the raw essence of each new place I visit with my camera. Meg, is an aesthetician, who specialises in facials and manicures/pedicures. We are both nature lovers and enjoy going on nature hikes or walks. We are very into spirituality and living a calm and peaceful lifestyle.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am visiting the states for the second time, the first was when I was 13 and I went to New York. This time around, I am visiting with my fiancé, Meg and I am hoping to one day move to the U.S. so that we can settle down there. We are looking for a way to travel around the U.S. together and immerse ourselves into the states we would like to visit so we can get a better idea of what it would be like to live in that particular state, hopefully meet some new people, make some friends and save a little money in the process.

Music, Movies, and Books

We enjoy a lot of foreign and independent movies, anything with a great musical score and cinematography captures our interest. My favourite director is Wes Anderson, Grand Budapest Hotel is my top choice for his movies. Meg is a sucker for horror films, who doesn't love a good ghost story? She also enjoys a good comedy and period film as well.

We enjoy System of a Down and other various rock musicians. Meg loves musicals, opera and classic rock from the 70s and 80s. And I enjoy my psychedelic and punk genres.

I'm not much of a reader but when I do read, I enjoy books about photography, spirituality and quantum physics. Meg enjoys classic literature and poetry, as well as fantasy/sci-fi, and horror. She also loves to read manga from time to time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've ridden on the back of an elephant in Thailand and I rode on the back of a buffalo in Vietnam. Meg is still waiting for her amazing thing to happen.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I've travelled to many different countries and would love to share my experiences with my host, also if they share a love of art or photography, spirituality and nature, we would love to provide discussions on such things. I'm also a great cook and can make a mean Thai curry, so if you're in the mood for trying an authentic curry I would be happy to share this meal with you.
