Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have not hosted for about 4 years but like meeting new people and having a chat
Lots of hosting and a fair bit of surfing with others when I am lucky enough to be traveling. When I am at home it is so cool to host people and get their travel buzz and hear their stories. I cant travel all the time but it is the next best thing.
Surfing, and riding, riding, riding all the time.
I also like good food and even better ice cream.
I read plenty of books. I always have two or three books by my bed that I am alternating between. I mainly read non ficton as it gets my brain working a bit.
Music, Movies, and Books
A History of Violence
Pans Labyrinth. If you have not seen it you need to.
The Three Amigos
Airplane 1 & 2
any silly stuff that makes me laugh.
Ok were do I start here.....lots and lots of things. It is aways changing depending on what I have just listened to.
Books by Richard Dawkins,
Charles Darwin - Origin of Species
Sam Harris - Letter to a Christian Nation
Simon Singh - Fermats last Theorem, Code Breakers and Big Bang, Jarrod Diamond - Collapse and Guns, Germs and Steel
Phillip Pullman - 'The Northern Lights trilogy' These are my favorite books ever. Amazing writing and story telling.
'The Life of Pi' So many books... cant think of them all.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Only one!? No way.....
Learning to surf. I've been surfing for over 25 years and it still blows my mind! And I am still completly crap at it! I have surfed with dolphins and been chased out of the water by sharks a few times, so thats pretty cool.
Racing motocross from when I was younger was fanastic
Travel. I left it pretty late to start but I will never regret what I have done. I think anyone reading this will know what I mean!
Teach, Learn, Share
I think everyone should frown less and smile more. It makes you feel better!
