Join Couchsurfing to see Mick’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm married with two kids, one aged 20 the other 15. I live in a converted water millhouse near Carcassonne in the south of France which I renovated myself. I lived in London for many years, Sydney, Manchester, Aberdeen, Leeds and Leicester before that.
I've been a transport planner, IT specialist, journalist, house renovator and currently I rent holiday accommodation.
I travelled widely in my younger years and now with the kids growing up I want to start again.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Because I like travelling and meeting people
The great outdoors, the great indoors, great cities, basically anything great. So, walking, mountain biking, skiing, camping, train travel, swimming, eating, drinking, pubs, restaurants, reading, films, renovating houses, travel.
- pub crawls
- eating out
- outdoor activities
Music, Movies, and Books
I was a punk rocker at 14, well it was 1977. Then came a big Joy Division/indie/Goth phase in the mid 80s. These days I'm into anything with passion, energy and melody.
Top film directors include David Lynch, Ridley Scott, Chris Nolan, Woody Allen, Tarantino, Kubrick, Coppola.
Novels include Sarah Waters, Amy Tan, Recently read awesome history of 20th century - Age of Extremes by Eric Hobsbawm. Currently re-reading Catcher in the Rye
