About Me

Hi, I'm Ross. just looking to meet up with like minded people and make friends. I am from Scotland. I travel a lot with work, so if you can host me I am sure I can return the favour somewhere :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Meet new people
Find out more about the places I am travelling in and get to live like a local
To share experiences


I love nature, a big fan of Thoreau, John Muir and Ray Mears and love to get outside exploring whenever I can. I like hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, camping, swimming, gorge walking and pretty much anything that gives me a thrill. I lived in a tent in the wild for a while and I love learning about local ecology and botany.

I like to keep fit and love sports, especially football and tennis. I am keen to meet up with other football fans from other countries and maybe go to see a game together.

I am really energetic and like dancing, meeting new people, learning about new cultures and am a big reader as well. As long as you are enthusiastic about something in life I will probably get on with you.

I like to write poetry and fiction and it would be good to meet anyone else that writes too, or plays music.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love Japanese culture and most of Studio Ghiblis films. My other favorites are the Lion King, Drive, Embrace of the Serpent, City of God. Love Tarantino and Scorsese, and I love the British sense of humour and comedians like Frankie Boyle, Ricky Gervais and Charlie Brooker, Trainspotting etc.

I like most music. African Graceland types, folk, and rock, some Celtic but hate the bagpipes. My favourite artists are Bob Dylan, Velvet Underground, Check Berry, Buddy Holly and Woody Guthrie.

My favourite writers are Tolstoy, Solzhenitsyn, Chekhov. J.D Salinger. Bukowski. London and Plath
