About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To experience the freedom , the peace and the buzz of travel.

ABOUT ME

Hopefully sociable and outgoing. Into social justice, love the freedom to travel and like to get involved with a campaign occasionally,whether it be anti-war or against racism.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Will host occasionally but always happy to meet for a coffee and chat with any CSers in my area.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Have hosted quite a few people but only one via CS.

Interests

The buzz of travel definitely does it for me. There is nothing like the elation that you get from either setting off on a trip or meeting amazing people.

Music, Movies & Books

Films: Amelie, 400 Blows, Eraserhead, City of God, Pulp Fiction. Books: Anything by Flann O'Brien, Jack Kerouac, A Fine Balance: Rohinton Mistry, Bus Conductor Hines: James Kelman. Music:Nina Simone, Aretha, Eddie Reader, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Brian Eno.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Spending a few days in a grass hut in Khao Sok National Park in Thailand was a phenomenal experience. You have to see the photographs. Swimming with whale sharks in Donsol in the Phillipines, the abject poverty of the families we saw on the drive into Mombai from the airport.

Teach, Learn, Share

I teach Communication and a little Social Science for a living but I definitely see myself as a student when I travel.

Croatia, Cuba, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Hungary, India, Mexico, Netherlands, Philippines, Poland, Slovakia, Thailand, United States, Viet Nam
