My favorite number is 254. I'm half Iranian, half Armenian, molded in Yorkshire, happy to call London my home. I like baffling myself by trying and doing new things. I believe life is meant to be filled with as many experiences as possible.
I have a few:
1. You're only young once but you can always be immature
2. Get involved
3. baffle the system
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
After coming back from an 8 month trip I still want to meet interesting people from all over the world.
Also, I've been to many places and enjoyed them all. However, London is still my favorite city in the world. I know how daunting big cities can be especially when you don't know where to go and what to do. So I want to help people avoid all the traps and experience London properly.
While coach surfing myself I'm interested in locals showing or directing me to the interesting things in their city. In exchange I'll provide average company and terrible conversation. ok - maybe i'll try harder!
never really heard of couch surfing until late in an 8 month trip at which point I didn't have the time to couch surf myself. And then surfed around japan in 2009.
Have hosted in London in 2009 and 2010 but haven't done much since. eager to experience it again.
really really eager to host now...
adventures, pleasant encounters, good food, parties, fancy dress, cycling, scuba diving, surfing, rock climbing, hiking, camping, reading, current affairs, politics (especially social justice, foreign affairs and education equality), photography, sky diving, derelict buildings, good coffee, good food, theater, weird things, making funny faces in the mirror, laughing, trying new things, but most of all my main interest is being a moron
- scuba diving
- rock climbing
Music, Movies, and Books
Books that keep you thinking about it for days after you've finished them. Orwell, Kundera, Dostoyevsky.
Mainly rock and metal music. can enjoy Drum and Base and heavy sounding electro when partying but utterly detest R&B.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Swimming with sea lions in the Galapágos.
Going to burning man festival this year
