About Me

Wandering about looking at stuff is pretty good.

What I've been doing the last couple of years is visiting different places by bicycle. On the 1st of October I'm flying to Sapporo and plan to travel Japan by bike too.

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.
