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.


Walking around cities Swimming outside Moroccan tagines, South East Asia curries and English puddings Coffee, red wine and ales Bookshops and pubs Thriftstores Fruit and vegetable markets Music that makes me feel euphoric Doing physics problems and studying philosophy Trying to speak a foreign language Remote dramatic places Art galleries Clubs with decent music Scrabble, Boggle and Backgammon

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.
