About Me

Sydney Rome is actually my old DJ name, and although I retired a few years ago, online I'm mainly known as Sydney or Syd. When I'm not travelling you'll usually find me in A Coruña (Northwest Spain) or Spoleto (Central Italy).

If you're passing through the regions of Umbria or Galicia, feel free to contact me for travel advice + local tips, and if your timing is really good, perhaps even a couch to surf.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to swap stories and travel advice with other travellers + organise CS events all over the world. If you're hosting a Weekly Event or a CouchCrash, let me know so I can try to come and/or spread the word.

Incidentally, I'll be organising my first CouchCrash in August, (and the first one EVER in Galicia apparently), so if you want to know more, here's a link to the event:

Music, Movies, and Books

A big YES to all three, but let's not forget about Video Games, which for me are an integral part of our mainstream culture as well.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I managed to survive the 80's and 90's, which most would agree, were the definitive decades for Clubbing, Dance Parties and Raves. Alas quite a few of my friends didn't.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm always up for learning a few more life hacks, but I'm guessing I can also teach you a thing or two.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Plenty of travel tales and the benefit of my extensive CouchSurfing experience.
