About Me


Contributing to Egyptian emancipation


I left England in 2007, left my job and home to travel on some savings. Life goes by so quickly that I look for fulfillment now, not when I retire.

I have no children and have settled my affairs in London.
I travel light and have spent the last 3 and a half years in hotels, like a rock star but without the wanton destruction.

I do not have a sense of humour, there was just no room in the luggage to take it with me.

I am self contained on the whole but can lose my head for some people.
I am a free spirit actually.
I can be lively and provocative.
I support the people I meet.


To live in awareness, to be intelligent, to feel deeply.
To live free of self-image.
Life is not an intellectual exercise.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have no permanent home to offer a couch but I make an intelligent and considerate guest.




Singing made up songs, psychology, art, music & exploration.
I am more interested in freedom than art, these days.

Music, Movies, and Books

Ones I haven't seen or read yet.

But for now I like Arvo Part, Schnittke, Berio, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Liszt, Schumann.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw a giant lizard slip silently into a garden pond and disappear.
I saw a screaming, raging, street swingeing alcoholic turn into a man.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am skilled in Gestalt dream analyis, an English teacher and experienced practitioner of Yoga Asana and meditation.I learned about these things in England and continued in India.
