About Me

Wandering about looking at stuff is pretty good.

In June I left Edinburgh by bicycle, my plan was to reach İstanbul which İ did at the beginning of September. İ made it to Georgia where my bicycle falling apart and winter approaching convinced me to chase the summer and fly to New Zealand. I'm travelling by bike here for a month or two then I most certainly need to make some money.

I apologise in advance if it takes me 2 or 3 days to reply to a message - I don't have a smart phone so have to find an internet cafe.

I've got the British curse of being too polite, having too many manners gets in the way of getting to know someone. Please give me a firm shake/slap across the face if I display symptoms of this feeble disease.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Just the obvious point that it seems a good way to meet friendly local people. I've made my way around with it and hosted a little in Edinburgh too. Since then I've used warmshowers (basically couchsurfing for people on a cycling tour) more often since I've been going on bike trips.

You may notice I have a negative reference. In short, what happened was I left a host without saying anything since I wasn't comfortable with the situation I found myself in. I'm not a dickbrain or anything. Have a look and see, it's pretty funny in retrospect.


Lots of things...

Getting out the house!

I'd like to claim to have some bizarre hobby but actually happiest going for a wander wherever with good company, then all the usual sort of stuff I can't be bothered listing. Anything that'll alleviate the boredom really. Being surprised is nice.
