Join Couchsurfing to see Peter’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm from Halifax, but I grew up abroad and then spent five years in Ontario (which is why I have no hometown listed! I'm geographically confused). I was in Montreal for five years, and now I'm in Guelph
I don't mind last minute requests - I know how plans change a lot when you're travelling! But please don't write me a copy/paste request. I will unfortunately say 'no', even if you seem cool in your profile.
I like spending time outside - I dress for the weather and get out there. I love exploring the city and trying new things. I'm taking a break from drinking, until February! Tea's cool though.
I'm gay but I'm straight-friendly :)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
- build connections with travellers and locals
- remember that there's different ways of living and approaching life
- couchsurfers' contagious sense of adventure
- the closest you get to travelling when you're not travelling
- pay forward the amazing hospitality that people have shown to me when I have been travelling
Camping, hiking, cycle touring/long distance cycling, biking, rural vs urban, languages, Esperanto, queer/gay stuff, environment, travelling, easy-recipe cooking, parks, people-watching, free events/stuff to do. And libraries, books and reading. And I'm probably interested in learning about what you're interested in/passionate about, even if it's not on my list.
Music, Movies, and Books
A big mix. The only time I will change the radio station is if a sappy ballad or a hard metal song comes on. I enjoy music and normally have music playing in my apartment, but I don't know band's names, and I can't sing along to save my life.
I enjoy movies mainly as an excuse to pig out on buttery popcorn on a cold winter night. I like watching movies from Quebec or Canada, from other countries, and movies like Rocky Horror Picture Show where you get to join in.
It's a weird mix, but I especially like post-apocalypse books, and gay-lit books. Some of my favourite authors:
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Bicycled from Ottawa to Cape Breton (Nova Scotia) and back, couch surfing and wild camping all the way.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you how to slack-line, how to knit, how to fix a flat (bike) tire, how to make beer bread in under 10 minutes, and I can share some card games (crib, gin, 45s, hearts...)
I want to learn how to cook new dishes, how to throw a frisbee better, and new card games.
What I Can Share with Hosts
- a friendly home
- my time
- a home cooked dinner
- hot shower
Countries I’ve Lived In
Canada, France, Switzerland
