About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Escaping the 9-5 for a while! Meeting new people... going with the flow! Currently traveling Argentina and Chile ( Nov 2015 - Feb 2016).

ABOUT ME

Siwmae! Hey there! ¡Que pasa!

It's been a little while since my last trip, but met some lifelong friends through staying with amazing hosts last time.
I'm in no doubt that this is the best way to get to know a place and would love to hear from locals as I travel around.

I'll be sure to return the favour once I'm home!

PHILOSOPHY

You could say I'm a chilled kinda guy. I think its important to have respect and to have fun!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Just starting out. I'll sort a place for myself soon enough and return the favours!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Limited experience traveling New Zealand. Met amazing hosts.

Interests

Im a keen sportsman. Im into rugby, football (soccer), tennis, athletics, to name a few (admittedly more watching most the time than participating!). I also continue to enter cross country races, swim and attend the gym when I can.

I love music. I can play the piano (although havent in years), I'l also pick up a guitar and a set of drum sticks now and again. I have hundreds of CDs and recentky got into vinyl and I attend as much live music events as I can. Mostly alternative, indie, folk, psychadelic, rock, funk, soul, blues... that sort of thing.

On a more down to earth level Im a lover of history and a proud Celt and Welshman.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was a actor in my youth. I've performed at London's Millennium Dome (now O2 arena). I was cast as a rebellious teenager in 10 episodes of a regional TV drama series.
I swam the Great Barrier Reef on my birthday (2010). I've camped beneath the stars as Uluru (Ayres Rock). Volunteered working alongside the UN World Food Programme in Kenya (Coast Province).

Teach, Learn, Share

You can quiz me on Wales, Welsh History, not too bad on music, sprts , politics and general knowledge.
A don't mind a good political discussion...always keen to hear new perspectives, particularly international experiences.

And if course I'd like to improve my Spanish.
