I'm 34, female, long time dweller in Manchester, one of the greatest cities on earth. I work as a photographer and I'm going to start a PHD in photography in a couple of months. I'm pretty laidback, think that community spirit enriches life and of course love travelling.
What goes around comes around.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Hosting- I'm temporarily between houses myself so for the time being up for meeting for a drink, showing people the sights and sounds of Manchester, and perhaps some of the natural beauties of the Peak District and North Wales. There are a lot of great places to go out in Manchester, especially if you are into live music.
Surfing: Hoping to find some folks to meet up with on upcoming trip to Egypt, Palestine,Israel.
So far....none! Although I do seem to recall meeting a range of Manc based couch surfers around the late night shebeens of our town. Hoping to meet some people travelling to Egypt, Palestine and Israel next month.

Music, Movies, and Books
The usual 'i like lots of music' with an especial personal passion for early 90's hiphop and 1960's California sunshiney pscyhedelic rock. I like dancing.
Book-wise I read a lot but often quite lowbrow stuff, thrillers and the like. Favourite book ever is probably The Electric Kool Aid Acid Test. Classics.... um.. Nabokov, Jane Austen, gloomy Russians, the Count of Monte Cristo is great book. I like poetry too, T.S. Eliot, Yeats, Ted Hughes.
Films... Airplane. And I can't stand plotless art house nonsense shot with handheld cameras. Makes me both queasy and bored.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share
I used to be a photography teacher so I guess I can help you with that.
And I have lived in Manchester nearly all of my life so can show people some great places to visit, go out, hang out, eat at and meet other people at.
