Escaping the 9-5 for a while! Meeting new people... going with the flow!
Just wanna say hi and introduce myself. I've heard alot of good things about this community from fellow travellers I've met on the road. I'm soon to be heading back on the road myself so would like to try this out.
I know this is meant to be a reciprocal not for profit exchange but seems as I’ll be away for a while and cannot offer a place myself I’m more than willing to work for my keep. Seriously, I’m more than willing to help out, however you feel I can. I’ll paint a wall or I’ll update your accounts, I’ll turn my hand to mostly anything.
So yeah, I'm easy to get along with, love music, love to party, love to meet new people... umm.. yeah. Much love.
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 favors!
Im a keen sportsman. Im into rugby, football (soccer), tennis, boxing to name a few. 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 (old school!) and 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.
Music, Movies, and Books
Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, The Beatles, Supergrass, Beck, Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zep, Arcade Fire, Band of Horses, The Shins, The New Pornographers, Dire Straits, Fleet Foxes, Jane's Addiction, Ocean Colour Scene, Manics, Stereophonics, Super Fury Animals.... far too many to mention... http://www.last.fm/user/DonniePancho will give a better idea.

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).
Teach, Learn, Share
This is a great idea!
You can quiz me on Wales, Welsh History, I'l have a go at the history of modern empires...and my music knowledge is quite good.
Academically I suppose I'l have to throw business studies in there too!
Countries I’ve Visited
