About Me


Winter Mountaineering


'Blessed are the curious for they shall have adventures'

our Adventures can take us far away from the place that we first began, whether we were chasing angels or running from demons its easy to overlook our own back yard and head for the greener grass on the other side of the fence and like many, it wasn't until I jumped the fence that i could start to appreciate what had be left behind.
Other the past 2 years i have been travelling across the UK and discovering what this place means to me and those who I meet and I have mainly been doing this by walking through the driving rain on top of our hill and mountains as a walking guide and mountain leader.


Love everyone, with compassion and understanding.
Live simply so others may simply live.
Treat people how your'd like to be treated.
Envision your greater self and a greater world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have set up couch surfing 'spaces' in the past at festivals and at home (dinnar parties, bbq, social space, creative space) as well as hosting officially and non officially.


I have spent a lot of time staying on couches up and down the UK, Philippines, Australia and Europe at friends, friend's of friends and peoples who were kind enough to let me stay a few nights having just met me and I'm always happy to return the favour
I'v been on the site awhile now hosted many friends over the years whether 'couchsurfers', friends or folk that just happen to need a place to stay the night.

I'v hosted more than i'v surfed (through the site) and generally use the events list to meet great people with similar interests and find anyone looking to go on the mountains with :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My earliest memory of surrealism. I once danced with a trib from Kenya to 80's music in a field in the middle of essex UK just another surreal moment in life where you can't help think 'how the hell did i get here'

and so so much more........

Teach, Learn, Share

I usually carry around with me a pharmacy of herbal tea which i don't mind sharing.

I'm always looking to go hiking or climbing with someone
