About Me


Painting myself around the Europe



We all need a challenge. So i have decided to take a few years from work and travel the world. The travel started about 4 years ago. Some of the countries visit include, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Australia and many European countries, phew, so much traveling. In an to cut down on my carbon footprint my life now resides in the south of Crete amongst the many olive trees and large moustached men in pick ups!

Life here is great. Most of the day is spent trying to paint the delicious landscape suffused by the milky Cretan sun. To describe myself in a few words. I'm Adventurous, funny, great at cooking indian food, creative, non smoking, enjoy walking and drinking copious amounts of tea! Also like a decent cappuccino.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In our post modern times social isolation is a reality for so many of us. How do we make new contacts and connections? Hopefully, CS may be a way forward in breaking down the barriers of social isolation and exclusion. If you like indian food i would love to cook some delicious Indian food for you. i normally travel with my box of fresh Indian spices.


Just started so a novice.
