About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To get people to read the "My Home" bit on the second page! Enjoy my honeymoon, and ideally find some people to hang out with in Albania and Montenegro after the "boring" honeymoon bit of my holiday.

ABOUT ME

I have been hosting people from all round the world all round the world for the last ten years. The best person was Rob because he shared the same love of good food and ridiculous conversation. The worst person was Cindy because she left hair everywhere, but even that wasn't the end of the world. Poor Cindy might think it's the end of the world if she keeps shedding hair everywhere - I'm not sure.

PHILOSOPHY

Have fun!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I firmly believe that the best way to travel is to meet the people who live in a place in order to get a real understanding of how the place functions. I've learned more from my couchsurfers than I did whilst at university. I also have an insatiable thirst for knowledge and find it easiest to learn straight from the horse's mouth...

So far I think I've been doing quite well at couch surfing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I cycled from the Arctic circle to Portugal a few years ago. I've scored 575 in Scrabble - quite amazing!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can do Reiki, and with this magic power I can see through walls and levitate cats. Seriously, I do do Reiki. I love teaching English, and can do it very quickly.
