To travel the UK, Europe, and eventually the world until I run out of money or find something I'd rather do
I'm fairly relaxed, fairly lazy, friendly. I like spending time with friends, in restaurants, in pubs, or even in museums or theatres if I'm lucky. I like walking around, watching tv, browsing the internet, playing piano, playing guitar (badly, I'm afraid).
Normally playing pool is the closest I get to excercise, but I like tennis and squash.
I quite like travel, though I couldn't find the time to travel until recently, so I'm looking forward to getting back out into the world.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
No Couchsurfing.com experiences so far.
I did once stay with a girl in Germany who I met in Australia, which was amazing.
News, politics, business, comedy, physics, economics, java, the world wide web, sleeping
- pub crawls
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies: Fight Club, American Beauty, the City of God... - I like other films too but I prefer TV. I love The Simpsons, Family Guy, the Office, Spaced, the News, Match of the Day, the Daily Politics, Working Lunch, Have I Got News For You, etc
Music: don't really listen to music, but love to play piano and guitar, and hate over-repetition (a la BBC radio 1)
Books: A Clockwork Orange, The Trial, The Undercover Economist, Globalisation and its Discontents
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I was amazed when I heard about couchsurfing.com - stay on stranger's couches, for free?
Teach, Learn, Share
Um... I can help you program in Java (I did this professionally!).
Maybe can help developing free websites that do nothing spectacular (don't know how to do anything server-side though)
Maybe I can teach basic classical piano.
I'm pretty comfortable with Maths upto secondary school level if you need any help with that.
