---LONDON THINGS TO SEE (read these links dammit!)
British from London. For short version of what I am up to: I work in psychology/psychotherapy, I am interested in mysticism, I write and I paint!
I am totally new out here, so would be more than up if anyone is into friend dates or activities... I promise to try to be a witty English-accented companion on any expeditions!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Travelling, meeting new people in random places. I love to meet people more than anything else, staying with people is also great, I am lucky to have lots of friends abroad but I am often in new places.
I promise you if I stay my number one concern is for the well being of my host, and I try my hardest to be respectful and understanding...I also hope by my presence I can bring random ideas, creativity and good discussions into your life.
If you want to stay please:-
Be fun, easygoing and don't use me merely as a free hotel ... it rarely works out well. CS is like any other human relationship and is about give and take, think about contributing at least good vibes and friendship.
Also if you have no real references its going to take more than a couple of lines to stay, this is a community we need to base our decisions on something. Engage me, I might not say yes right away, but I am friendly helpful chap and if nothing else I like to think I make a good friend.
I have hosted a wonderful variety of people and I have stayed with many wonderful people as a surfer myself. Long may it continue!

I am also a new convert to jazz and I am loving it!
Books - never enough fiction, too much psychology and philosophy... I own far too many. Fiction - Philip K Dick, Huxley, Camus, Kafka, Huxley, Fowles, Orwell. I also read a lot of mysticism, esoteric and Jungian works.
