Late-night conversation and keys to the infinite.
Call me Zed. Obsessive writer, devout metalhead, keen traveller, eternal student, aspiring polyglot, lazy musician, and silly person.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Best friend #1 and I have stayed with people in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Bulgaria and Turkey; best friend #2 and I gave a Greek guy a lift across Lithuania to a festival; and I've hosted a few people. And it's all been great!
Writing, metal, going to gigs and festivals, learning languages, reading, walking and travelling, obviously!
Music, Movies, and Books
Films? Anything with a good story and / or beautiful choreography.
Music? Mainly black metal, but some other guitar-based music, of various styles.
Books? "Person has unlikely role in interesting place at some point in the past" is a pretty good plot, as far as I'm concerned. My favourite is "Jonathan Strange And Mr Norrell".
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Travelled to Romania and back, via Albania, in a Peugeot 106 in the middle of winter. Although making the impromptu decision to climb the thirteenth highest mountain in England in the early hours of 1st January 2000 was marvellous too.
