About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I am on a quest to experienc eand learn as much as I can in this Bizzare and exciting and intenesly interesing world.

ABOUT ME

Im a traveller and adventuer and a poet and philosopher and a yogi and an Artist. I like to move and meet people, the more wacky the better. I like to keep my interests open and fresh which is one of the reasons I love to travel. For me travelling is like becoming a child again, with so many new things to lean and people to met. It blows my mind when I think about it and makes me feel increadibly happy and I cant believe how wonderful it is to be alive.

PHILOSOPHY

I like to think that life is a miraculous mystery in which every living thing has the priviliage of experiencing and that it is the beauty of this mystery that unites us all. The way I see it is that all we can really know is what we experience so my aim is to experience and learn and hopefuly spread some goodness around the world.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Im offically new to the couch surfing site but iv been naturally doing it for years. I like to host people from other places and learn from them and try and make them feel at home. I know what it is to move to other countires and not know anyone so I like to help people in that position. I also like staying with people and getting more of an inside view of a place..... meeting the locals so to speak and what its really like to live in a place.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Technically Im a new member to couch surfing but the reality is ive been couch surfing for the last ten years off and on. When I travel I tend to met people who put me up and when Im not travelling I always seem to make friends with people from other countires who I put up. I love the concept of couchsurfing and am very eager to participate.
