About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Radical hospitality

ABOUT ME

I'm almost always up for interesting conversations. I am curious about this beautiful fascinating world, and keen on meeting more people from its many corners.

Summer 2009, I completed rickshawing from Lands End, Cornwall, to Lowestoft, Norfolk, to raise money for Action Village India.

This 900+ mile journey was how I got into the world of couchsurfing!

PHILOSOPHY

And the days are not full enough
And the nights are not full enough
And life slips by like a field mouse
Not shaking the grass
-Ezra Pound

Fellowship is life

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I love DIY / grassrootsy projects like CS. I've hosted a few times, from just offering a bed for the night, to taking out surfers for a night on the town!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've done lots of hosting both in London and in Brighton and enjoyed meeting people from all over the world. I've surfed in Milan, Paris, Berlin and in Dartmoor - all very positive experiences. In Italy, I was privileged to go to a CS party on a hill overlooking the city: together with wine, food and lots of happy CSers I saw the sun set and the moon rise over the city. And in Paris I joined a most convivial 'Picnic du Jour' in a park. How wonderful to connect with interesting people wherever I go.

Interests

Reading, outdoorsiness, environmentalism and political activism, cooking and sharing tasty vegi food, Judaism, India.

Music, Movies, and Books

A old film I really like is 'Brief Encounter' - so sad and beautiful. And one I saw more recently that is brilliant is Age of Stupid. There are so many wonderful books I don't know where to start - Naomi Wolf, David Lodge, David Mitchell are a few authors I enjoy, though for political passion, no-one beats George Monbiot.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Getting up to see the sun rise early on a spring morning, the mist lifting to reveal a view of North London below, and hearing the dawn chorus with a thermos of tea in hand in my local park was pretty amazing. Sometimes you don't have to travel far for an amazing experience.
