About Me

CURRENT MISSION
Helping travellers to discover the BEST CITY IN THE UK Helping travellers to discover the places I've visited solo - via my travel blog: www.wilkowsworldrocks.com and Instagram: @wilkosworldrocks

*** CURRENTLY IN LA, CALIFORNIA AS OF NOV 2019***

ABOUT ME

Hi all, I’m now settled in Manchester, England after travelling around the world on a three year epic trip. I have a lovely two bed flat/apartment in Manchester City Centre and I have parking too, which is a rarity in the city. I have a nice big L-shaped sofa for you to crash on with copious amounts of bedding etc

Due to the size of the flat and the fact I have a flatmate to consider, one or two nights is the best I can do, two people max.

I am literally 5 mins walk from the nearest bars in Manchester city centre, 10 mins from Manchester Victoria train station and 20 mins walk from Manchester Piccadilly train station (although the FREE number 2 shuttle bus from here takes you to my place).

I am happy to put people up as long as the favour is returned somehow, so best not ask to stay with me if you’re not looking to hang out or speak to me. I will always try to help out wherever possible, so even if I can't accommodate you, I might still be able to show you around etc.

UPCOMING TRAVEL PLANS
LA - Nov 2019
Puerto Rico - Dec 2019
Necker Island (hanging out with Richard Branson!) - Dec 2019

PHILOSOPHY
Do something that scares the sh*t out of you, every single day.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've been hosted in the US, Cayman Islands, Canada, New Zealand, Africa and Australia....the least I can do is host some cool dudes in my native country!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

A fair bit. Have surfed and hosted...several times. Have hosted in Africa and the UK.

Interests

Rock music (AC/DC, Led Zep, not the doom metal/hard stuff!), going to gigs and festivals, travel. You'll find me in the pub most nights...not just to drink, I love meeting new people (honest!)
