About Me

I love meeting new people, travelling, and speaking foreign languages.
I am very easy to get on with, very fun and friendly and full of inappropriate jokes. And nice jokes. ..

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I don't do couchsurfing just to save money. I want the experience of actually meeting the people who are cool enough to let people stay in their home.
I will cook you dinner, buy you a beer, and walk your dog/child x
I am not 'verified' because why should I pay when everyone i have met tells me they have not paid. Also I have hosted on BeWelcome, only trying couchsurfing for the first time now. So please don't let the 'verified' thing stop you - you will love me xx


Language, mountain biking, hiking, nature, cold beer, and talking absolute nonsense and having deep intellectual philosophical debates at the same time x

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Carried a wooden table to the top of an 1800m mountain in NZ with food, wine, wine glasses, plates and cutlery, and nice dinner clothes, and dined in style with my good friend Jonas right there on the summit. We had smoked salmon and Blue cheese too x
