About Me

I like to say I'm an old school type adventurer, wishing I had the lineage of famous explorers who wrote new maps and explored new lands, and I do live for adventure. But I'm also just a down-to-earth modest guy with a taste for great food, exotic music and indie films.

Travelling runs deep in my veins, and I love grabbing an Atlas and having the excitement of pointing to somewhere and saying, hell I'm going there!

All these travel experiences are enriched by people, so meeting new people, socialising and very much getting on board with the traveller 'ethos' of go with flow and helping one another out, is exciting and fulfilling.

Talking about travelling experiences and sharing in knowledge and the overwhelming excitement of the road is life. Odes to Jack Kerouac, On the Road etc. influenced my life and outlook.

I also am into Philosophy, literature, cycling, languages, cars and more than anything music. I'm also trying to learn more languages and teach others english in return.

Love travelling new countries, exploring the culture and the beauty behind them.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Looking for shared experiences, meeting new people and hopefully in the future to host people!

Wanting to connect with people whilst abroad and travelling. Wanting to help teach others English and learn languages in return.

Interested in long car trips to see this beautiful rugged world we inhabit.


Varied. Love learning about new cultures, places, very big on music and literature.

The world has too much to fall in love with so we have to full head over heels each time.
