About Me


To avoid the real world for as long as possible and to blow my tiny hometown village mind...


Recently returned from China and now living in York.

I enjoy travelling, learning Mandarin, drinking, socialising and learning the guitar.


Not everything can go to plan, so take it easy and as it comes

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Love to accept and help travellers as much as possible... I have met countless people and made countless CS friends, all of which have given me a great experience.


First experience was in 'New Territories, Hong Kong'. It was a great experience with the host helping me with local food and transport.


Tennis, football, guitar, travelling, blogging and a huge list of other things.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My teaching in China was one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. To see the students improve and also to see my own abilities grow really gave me a great 10 months... I would recommend it to everyone!

I am not sure what I can teach you but I know Intermediate Mandarin and would be willing to help you as much as I can.
