About Me


Become the world's first happy Scotsman.


It's hard to write these without sounding a little over earnest so I'll try to keep it brief.

Wandering about looking at stuff is pretty good.

I came to Spain by bike with my friend Suso from Edinburgh to his town, Manzanares. He had to stay there but I continued to Morocco, I'm back in Spain now though until I run out of money!

Due to the nature of the trip I don´t plan to go out drinking,to nightclubs, going to restaurants much or that kind of thing, to save money, one night out could be a week of cycling! Bottle of wine or that sort of thing would be nice though. I say this now to avoid any awkwardness after arriving at someone´s house.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Surfing and the odd hosting when I'm settled.


I made my way around the South of France with the site and mostly had a supremely good time with the people I met. You may notice I have a negative reference though. 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... 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.

Music, Movies & Books

I like the authors Stephen Vizinczey and Kyril Bonfiglioli. More recently I've been getting into Robert Walser. Philippe Petit's book and film about his wirewalk is amazing!
Mad on Bert Jansch's music and am currently obsessed with 'First Thought Best Thought' by Arthur Russell.
I was tempted to open my profile proclaiming Dean Spanley as my favourite film and urging everyone to watch it but that would be daft. I saw and loved Barry Lyndon not long ago.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Everyday stuff if you're in a funny mood.
