About Me

Student. Mildly cynical. Generally enjoy small relatively simple things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like both to surf and host. (So far, I have surfed more than hosted)

I first used couchsurfing to meet new people when I spent a few months in Berlin. I next used it to travel across Eastern Europe, Russia and Mongolia. I've hosted some people at home in London. Last summer I couchsurfed around the US.

Teach, Learn, Share

I really like cooking for others and being cooked for.

I think couchsurfing is about staying with people that you want to meet not just getting somewhere free to stay. As such, I reckon everyone should glance over the profile they are sending a request to. I know I find it hard to write a non-forced request so please could you just include the word "mug" in your request so that I know you have read mine.
