About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To Help Out Surfers With An Emergency Bed For A Night Or Two If I am Free . . PLEASE NOTE I only respond to those who have arrived in Cardiff and are stuck for the night this is due to time wasters .ALSO PLEASE NOTE I AM NOT ACCEPTING ANYONE BETWEEN FRIDAY 2ND -MONDAY 5TH JUNE 2017 WHEN THE FOOTBALL IS TAKING PLACE .

ABOUT ME

I am residing in a flat one mile from the city with a bus every 10 minutes ..My location has plenty of shops , cafes and bars with a lovely boating lake with a lighthouse dedicated to Captain Scott .

Everyone who like to stay MUST be a member of this site ...

PLEASE NOTE I CAN ONLY HOST THOSE OF THE SAME SEX EITHER MALE OR FEMALE NOT BOTH .

Everyone who stays will find i am a perfect host where they will be treated like a family member . I have noticed i am a lot older than the majority of you but please do not let that put you off as deep down i am a big kid at heart .

PHILOSOPHY

Never judge a book by it cover , therefore never judge a person by their looks for deep down in the soul is where the real person lies .

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

PLEASE NOTE I CAN ONLY HOST THOSE OF THE SAME SEX EITHER MALE OR FEMALE NOT BOTH

By helping surfers out when it is possible
and also to show the guests round if ever it is required and i am free , otherwise i will give them the information to go away with .

However if you do stay all i expect is that you are respectful at all times in return i will give you B&B all i ask is that you contribute towards the evening meal , i hope this has not offended you in any way . Just that some surfers have been known to take advantage of the host and get what they can out of their stay .

I can normally respond to any couch requests within the hour pending time of day as all messages from CS goes straight to my phone like a text message so never hesitate to make contact no matter



.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I was not sure what to expect when i joined with the intentions of hosting travelers but my mind was put to rest when i went on a walkabout in Cardiff with three others followed by giving a bed for the night to my first traveler now i look forward to entertaining others .
However i have found that some surfers request a couch then never turn up and are too ignorant to inform the host who would be waiting all day to greet them . Show some respect and inform the host if your plans change .

Interests

I like cooking so will try anything once , I go and do some wild camping for a couple of nights at a time sleeping under the stars , like to let my hair down and have a great night with lovely company . I also like visiting historic places of interest , so can show you around what Cardiff has to offer .
This is some places i have been which you can copy and paste on thel links for "You Tube" and see my pics .
