ABOUT ME

Hi I'm Tim!

I love travelling, snowboarding, biking, driving, learning, working, photography, community and friends.

I used to live in Melbourne, Australia, but now I live in Edinburgh, Scotland with my partner Natasha.

Natasha and I travel and adventure together pretty much all the time, you can find her profile at couchsurfing.com/people/natasha.bairstow

PHILOSOPHY

Love people, love life, respect others, have fun, and question what you believe.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've shared tears with strangers, slept in airports for days, experienced camaraderie with fellow passengers, and been welcomed in by people out of sheer generosity and awesomeness.

Teach, Learn, Share

If it's technology related, I can probably teach you how it works.
I work as a software developer, so I know quite an extensive amount about programming.
I can also attempt to teach you to snowboard :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I actually really enjoy vacuuming and cleaning vacuums - if you hate vacuuming, then we could make a great team ;)
