Join Couchsurfing to see Stephen’s full profile. It’s free!
I love travelling and meeting people from different cultures, I love food and wine and I love the sea. I am a British-trained doctor and a Swedish-trained radiologist. I completed an intensive 10 week online course in Greek and Roman Mythology in 2014 (University of Pennsylvania) and obtained an overall mark of 98.5%! I am an author/journalist and I have written many articles on the Iraq War and on the Dr David Kelly affair. I was commissioned to write a 2,500 word piece by the Daily Mail on the Dr David Kelly scandal.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Interested in people from different countries/cultures. Travelling is the best education. I am very curious.

What I Can Share with Hosts
Conversation on many subjects, serious and not so serious. I have a good sense of humour. I try not to take myself too seriously and I try not to judge others too harshly. None of us is perfect and in the end it is all a matter of luck who one is.
