About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To wander across South America and some out with some good Spanish...

ABOUT ME

I'm an easy going guy interested in meeting people from all walks of life. A history graduate, I'm talking six months off before I start work in the legal profession. I've been traveling quite a bit - having been across America, Asia and South America. I love meeting new people and discovering new cultures.

PHILOSOPHY

Be open to everything and everyone. You never know who you might meet or what will happen.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have only hosted a mutual friend through CS once before and I really enjoyed the experience. I haven't yet used CS to surf anywhere else yet though, but I've heard so many good things from friends!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Nothing yet - but hopefully will have many stories to recount soon!

Interests

I'm a big foodie, so I always look forward to trying out new dishes wherever I travel. Conversation is really important to me too - being able to talk passionately about something with people I have met. I'm interested in most things, but differences of culture and politics especially. I also love the outdoors, especially going on long hikes!

Music, Movies & Books

I'm into all kinds of movies - recently I've enjoyed some foreign films; The Lives of Others, but also big Hollywood movies like Inception and The Dark Knight. Basically a big mix of things!

I watch more TV, things that are very British, like The Thick of It, but also Mad Men, Big Bang Theory, New Girl and the like.

Music wise, I'm a big indie kid, so bands like Bombay Bicycle Club and Vampire Weekend. Also French electo swing, especially Caravan Palace. Also big bands like Muse.

I read mostly non-fiction stuff, especially things on Indian history which was my main degree interest.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Probably doing an overland trip from Mumbai to Beijing, over three months. I also summitted a 6000m mountain in Bolivia.

Teach, Learn, Share

Hopefully I can share my insights about travelling round the world with other people. I also know some really cool bars and restaurants in London!
