To explore and grow, to know new smiles and light in people's eyes. To sit on a hill dotted with cyprus pines eating food with friends overlooking medieval buildings, drinking local wine from the bottle, I'm fine in my own company but to one day find a partner to share the adventures with would be amazing.
Art, culture and food are my favourite things in life. I find art galleries are my church. I'm an open minded guy from Australia. Finally everyone can get married here which is amazing. I do not discriminate against anyone based on sexuality, ethnicity or age. Everyone has the right to be loved and to know acceptance in this lifetime. I have a sense of philosophy based on learned experiences and my own form of spiritual connection to people and environment especially the Italian landscape.
Kindness, humility and grace
Only give to others what you would be happy to receive yourself.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I am fairly new to the whole experience of couchsurfing and would ideally like to meet open minded people, who appreciate art, culture, film, outdoors, galleries, cooking together etc.. to feel like a local in an unknown place. To form close connections, friendships and lasting memories.
I love cooking for friends and sharing stories over a good long table of food, laid out with wine and good company. Could even be in field in the country. Some of my favourite artists range from Dalí, Picasso, Andrea del Sarto, Dufy, Caravaggio, Correggio. I enjoy poetry, writing and reading other's work. I love flea markets, old book shops, junk shops, antique markets going to concerts, camping outdoors, collecting things made by hand finding ruins, exploring ancient monuments.
