About Me


To travel from the UK to Papua New Guinea, without the use of flights; http://www.thebrokebackpacker.com/uk-to-png/


Travelling, Crossfit and Writing are my three passions.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


The most important thing for me about travelling is to meet new people and I have had some fantastic experiences with couchsurfers around the world...

I love helping CSers out on farming and natural building projects.

I am keen to host surfers whenever I am in a location for long enough to do so and I really enjoy chatting and where possible offering advice on the forums :)


I have had some awesome experiences and met some really cool people, been serrenaded by Laos's best singer, hung out with some bongoes in the sahara and discovered the full strength of romanian beers in underground bars, chilled out in a cave overlooking Petra, worked side by side with other couchsurfers on a permaculture project, trained with Samurai, herded goats, dug holes, downed shots and made some lasting and valued friendships :)


Writing, reading, trekking, Crossfit, yoga, travelling and meeting cool new folks.
