"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WHOA WHAT A RIDE!
You know, a person's life is made up of a zillion little experiences. Some, which have no meaning, are insignificant and you forget them. And some that stick with you for the rest of your natural life.
Now, what I am offering is so unusual, so outside the norm, that I think it would be a pretty good guess that this will be one of those experiences that sticks.
Since you're gonna be stuck remembering Couchsurfing with me for the rest of your life, you gotta decide what that memory will be.
Are you gonna remember for the next forty years, give or take a decade, how you refused to Couchsurf with me, or you accepted?
I'm an Australian, born and bred in Sydney. In 2004 i decided to make the most of my British passport and get a one way ticket to London and see what happens. All these years later I'm still here!
I speak my mind and will say what I want to say.
Chill the fuck out, MAN!

"Why, Sir, you find no man, at all intellectual, who is willing to leave London. No, Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford."

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I saw someone flick a cigarette onto the floor in a nightclub once and after it bounced it landed standing up as if someone had placed it there very carefully. I think thats something i will never see again in my life. If that happened in The Matrix, it would have caused a glitch and we would have all been sucked into a black hole. Thankfully i wasn't on acid at that time or it could have really happened! Or maybe too bad i wasn't as it would have been more fun than what was going on in the club.
Also, I got a last minute free ticket for the premiere of Django Unchained. Walking the red carpet with Tarantino, Jackson, Waltz and Foxx was quite an honor but the best part was watching the new Tarantino movie in the same cinema with Tarantino. Best start to a year EVER!.
Teach, Learn, Share
If you can teach me something which i learn, then I'll share it.
