About Me

Just a cheeky, chilled out, happy-go-lucky kind of guy - down to earth, but adventurous and playful, a little intellectual and sometimes competitive (Ok, always competitive, but you won't know it if I'm losing!) :)I try to be kind, polite and considerate... although like everyone I guess, I've made mistakes!

I often think of myself as shy, but people tell me I'm not. Strange!Maybe (Ha! "maybe"!) I'm a bit of a fool; I listen to my heart rather more than my head or, more importantly, other people.

I managed to escape reality and get across Latin America for about 18 months a while back. I loved every minute... but now... I am home :( It's all good though. I'm just working working working to get back to doing what I love - discovering new places, drinking with new people and waking up late!

PHILOSOPHY

Live, Learn and Laugh :)

"Hasta La Victoria Siempre!!"

"Un pour tous et tous pour un!"

"Love, it will not betray you, dismay or enslave you, it will set you free"

"Everything happens for a reason" Hmmm... maybe... let's see...

"Hey miiiister, you got a light?" :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Still wondering if some of these adventures are real or just dreams.
Ze journeys zeem to be punctuating ze life.
Is anything real anyway?
WooOOOooOO.
Heh heh
:P
But seriously, I am.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: errr, everything I guess - except the stuff that nobody likes - the stuff in the charts ;)
No, but really... I like raving - techno and drum n bass, I LOVE the Beatles (they brought my mum from France to England - and they have a song for every mood!!), rock festivals are really good (but expensive! You must go to Glastonbury!), and old skool hip hop gets me movin' too :)

Movies: Well, I'm pretty sick of the standard Hollywood crap that gets churned out every year, I like something different... maybe with a bit of a philosophical vibe to it. Nothing scary though!! Please! A Night At The Roxbury, Dazed and Confused, Friday, La Vita E Bella... so good!

Books: I like reading but I don't get round to it so often!! Right now I'm reading something very interesting called Views From The Real World - the ideas are intense!
I read some real good books on some real long bus journeys, mmm... can't think of them now - we'll talk about it when we meet if you like, hehe.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sitting inside Stonehenge circle as the sun came up on the solstice was pretty damn cool!!

Machu Pichu - WOW
Lake Atitlan - Beautiful
The girl behind the bar in Rome - " !!"

We lost our important little bag in Nicaragua, and somebody actually brought it back to us!!! With camera, money, passports, everything!! When does that happen???

Teach, Learn, Share

I played the guitar pretty badly until my little brother sold it while I was away. I dance like a fool. I can't draw. I have a French mother but I don't speak French. I gess my sspelllign is ok. I could skateboard but I'd dislocate my shoulder!

This section is depressing! :P

Oh, I can show you how to make some real easy money... really!! (This is true, I think you think I'm making it up, but I'm actually not, haha! Might depend on your country though... and your patience... and, Ok, if we can be sober long enough to go through it).

Ahhh yesss, AND, once upon a time (if I remember rightly), in a galaxy far, far away... I was once told by one wonderful beautiful old lady (riding a raccoon no less!) that I'm NOT actually *THE* 100% guaranteed -fully-certified- SHITTIEST English teacher in the whole entire universe.
And I felt quite good about myself for about a second.
And then it stopped :)
