Join Couchsurfing to see Thomas’s full profile.
I travel the world studying culture and language and support myself by teaching English. I hope to continue doing this for as long as I can.
Refute Seneca: "wanderers have many dwelling places but few friends, for they have no time to make them."
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Travel (and host) and experience (and share) a more authentic slice of local culture.
Always looking for something new be it food or drink, language or just a country I have never been to. I am an avid reader and traveler who enjoys photography and linguistics.
