To seek out new life and new civilizations...
Originally from a sweet little town in England nestled inbetween Liverpool and Manchester. I finished my East Asian Studies with (Basic) Japanese Uni degree in 2015 and I'm hoping to put it to use in Japan while continuing my part time UK businesses. A lot of my former classmates are teaching English in Japan, so it is something I am looking in to.
I am currently residing in Osaka and hope to stay here until 2016.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I can sometimes offer a spare bed, but I usually participate by arranging meetings or joining events.
So far, so good. Had lots of fun exploring, hiking and chatting with many couchsurfers from all over the world.
Music, movies, games, cycling, trekking, climbing, kayaking, flying, poker, bass guitar, urbex, environment, wildlife, self-sustainability, food and drink (Most certainly drink!)...
East Asia. I have been studying the region and trying to learn Japanese for several years.
HBO TV dramas; from late 90's OZ and the Sopranos to current marvels such as Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire.
- rock climbing
Music, Movies, and Books
I'm a big fan of movies and try to watch a few every week!
I can appreciate music from almost any genre (death metal, screamo, cheesy pop a bit less so). Mostly metal, rock, jazz and country at the moment! (KORN is the band I have seen the most)
Reading wise, pretty much anything by Robin Hobb. Superb fantasy without the usual old staples of the genre like dwarves, elves, etc. Currently enjoying DUNE!
Always had an interest in video games since picking up my first joystick on the Atari 2600. I find it hard to turn down a good RPG or RTS.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Climbed Mt. Fuji, snorkelled Cairns, surfed Sydney, shooting Arizona...
Teach, Learn, Share
Anyone who has mastered or trying to learn English. I have been studying Japanese for years and I'm always eager to learn more and practice! Bass guitar, need someone to practice with! Business ideas, theres always a niche out there.
