About Me

I've just moved to Adelaide. Lived in Australia before but this time it's for good 👌

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To carry on meeting like-minded travellers even when I stop travelling..

Music, Movies, and Books

I love indie/rock music but I'm fairly open-minded on music. I used to be in a bit of a pop punk band when I was at uni and I had floppy emo hair!

I don't watch a lot of movies but I love:
V for Vendetta, Shutter Island (and most Leonardo di Caprio films), Memento and some foreign language movies such as La Piel Que Habito & Hable Con Ella (Pedro Almodovar!) and Die Welle.

Books:
I tend to read non-fiction. I recently read First They Killed My Father which is written by a woman who was 5 years old when the Khmer Rouge took power in Cambodia. It was one of the saddest things I've ever read and I really recommend it, especially to anyone who doesn't know about the Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I trekked to Everest Base Camp with two friends I met on my travels. We trekked without porters or guides. We watched the sunrise over Everest (while resisting hypothermia!). I wrote up a more detailed description here if you want to know more! https://toldbystephen.com/2015/02/27/everest-base-camp/

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd love to find someone to help me learn Spanish! Obviously I can help with English too, but apart from that I'm not sure what I can teach...

What I Can Share with Hosts

Stories and long chats about life and the world.

When I'm back in the UK with a job and a car then I'd love to take people sightseeing.
