About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Second Job, quite a lot of fun most of the time

ABOUT ME

No longer a student sadly though I do have a salary so I suppose that's something to be happy about. But, after 4 years of gainful employment, Masters degree starting in September 2015.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Happy to help people out in Auckland, New Zealand. Can't host at the moment I'm afraid.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Started Couchsurfing in March of 2009, met a lot of CS people during my summer trip which was fantastic, now was hoping to indulge in a little bit of hosting or guiding people in Lyon and now happy to have CSers in Auckland, here in the North Island of New Zealand.

Thanks to all of the people that I saw during my travels, marvellous times with all of you.

Interests

Love music, literature and films. Very fond of travelling. Trying to develop my language skills so as to feel less like a lazy anglophone.

Music, Movies & Books

Music is hugely important to me, back in Europe I found myself missing CDs I can't get to because they were boxed up on the other side of the world. I will attempt a list one day but it would be a fairly huge task, we could say indie / alternative kid but that is only really a very vague description and woefully inadequate in some ways.

Books: Again, many different things, was taking Dostoyevsky to Russia but managed to finish it in Finland before I crossed the border.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Saw Patti Smith and Philip Glass play a tribute concert for Alan Ginsberg in a Roman amphitheatre in France that's still in use on a beautiful summer's evening.

Have travelled through Russia which leads to a whole lot of stories.

Teach, Learn, Share

There's a kebab shop on Calle Elvira in Granada that will give you food food poisoning. There are so many that I can't remember which one, suppose that also means the chances of picking it are fairly small.

If you are going to travel from Moscow to Vilnius then you have to go through Belarus, you need a visa and its not worth the effort, best just to go to Riga then to Vilnius.

Countries I've Visited

Australia, Belgium, China, Cook Islands, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Russian Federation, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States, Vatican City State

Countries I've Lived In

France, New Zealand, Spain, United Kingdom
