Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I can't always host a couch but I am happy to show you what I know of a place! London, Canterbury, Reading and Berlin would probably be the best places to ask me about! I am an insane coffee and tea drinker and I have recently am becoming a fan of beer since moving to Germany - so meeting up for a chat over any of those would be great in my book!
Been to a couple of the group meetups - quite enjoyed ultimate frisbee in Treptower park!
Well, I study literature so a big topic of my would be reading. There is nothing quite like getting immersed in a book. I recently finished Haggard's 'She' actually. It's a bit archaic but worth a read!
Music is also a big thing for me, I love going to gigs and finding new things to listen to. Berlin has certainly got me into more electronic music. I also play the piano (and sing...badly).
Science fiction is another love of mine. The books, the games, the tv, films etc I've even been to a convention once or twice.
I also like to write take photos and paint (badly)
- electronic music
Music, Movies, and Books
Parov Stelar (and the whole electro swing sound)
Ska music in general...bit of reggae now and again too.
I like to keep fairly up to date with films too but the general brand of film that I like is pretty broad. Something thought provoking and well made, potentially with a positive message behind it (or not). I am a big fan of the Coen Brothers. And Disney films... I feel I should also mention that I think I have watched the worst film of all time. 'The Room'. It's so bad. But hilarious...
As for books, anything. Apart from extensively delving into the post-modernist discourse or ploughing my way through any space operas, I am pretty widely read.
