About Me


To enjoy life

To see, hear, touch, smell and taste nature in all its glory!

To have a friend in every country of the world!


Go with the flow!

I want to give something positive and productive back to this world!

I am very easy to get along with and love meeting people and have friends from all walks of life!

I'm so open-minded it is impossible to close again haha

Been travelling for years and love exploring this beautiful planet and now is the time to meet the beautiful people that open their doors to somewhat strangers, to share and make more friends from around the globe.

I love nature and humanity and photography and music and dancing and having fun!

I have been working for various overseas charities and love to travel around doing this in various places, meeting the wonderful people who volunteer for the good of mankind!


Be the change you wish to see in the world!

I think therefore i am!

What goes around comes around! Karma!

Know Thyself!

Carpe diem!

Dont worry, Be Happy!

All that we are is a result of our thoughts: it is founded on our thoughts, it is made up of our thoughts. If a man seeks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves!

Health is the greatest of blessings, contentedness the best riches; trust is the best of relationships!

Better to live 1 day enlightened than a lifetime in darkness!

Happiness the outcome of good! :D

The wise man guards sincerity as his best treasure.

Ones own self conquered is greater than the conquest of all other men!

He who is seeking his own happiness, doesn't injure or kill beings who also long for happiness, will find happiness.

Have virtuous people for friends, keep for friends the best of men!

Teach, Learn, Share

I was a chef in the UK and I am a culinary genius,(not my words) so i can teach you all how to make delicious, healthy, mouth-watering cuisine from around the world!

I also speak the queens' English so i can help anyone who wants to learn how to speak like a true English gentleman or lady! Also can speak Spanish at a high level and teach that if you would like.

I am a highly skilled DJ if you ever had an urge to spin the decks and mix your favourite tunes I can show you how the pros do it!

If you would like to learn how to walk a puma, I'm also well trained in this rare discipline or, how to play with monkeys and how to look after and feed these critters! No joke!

Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others!

The more we share the more we have!

Nothing greater than sharing a moment!

Never stop learning!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Hopefully a few laughs, some wisdom, delectable, tasty treats, deep meaningful and silly conversations(pending on your requirements!), language, music (I have an eclectic taste and have around 1tb of music in my backpack which I'd love to share with you music lovers), dancing, yoga, peace, harmony, spiritual cleansing and above all friendship!
