Have a good buzz and get some writing done while I'm at it
My name is Tim Sturtridge and I love life. I have always had a buzz for getting around and meeting new people and seeing new places. I am currently living in Buenos Aires and cannot recommend it enough for anyone who is thinking of paying a visit. I hope to see more of South America before my time is up because what I have seen so far has left me thirst for more. I work as a freelance football journalist and keep tabs on the scene over here for various newspapers, magazines and websites. One motivation for joining Couch Surfing is I plan to visit South Africa for the 2010 World Cup and hope to meet the people of the country as I write a book covering the tournament.
There's two options in life, buzz or buzz out your head. The secret third option is go for a nap.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
My living situation in Buenos Aires means that at present I cannot host but I will change that as soon as I can. I hope I can help people out in other ways however. If anybody needs any tips on what to do or see while in Argentina get in touch and I will try to put you in know. Perhaps meet up for a cheeky fernet or two. Also I spent a while in London so if anybody needed any help getting to grips there I would be happy to help.
Apart from crashing with friends after a heavy night on sauce or as a result of a barney with the missus my couch experiences are a little thin on the ground. When I first moved up to London I did sleep on the floor of my Swedish friend's room for 3 months until I found my feet. Don't worry I won't be staying that long with you!
With my work a healthy interest in football is inevitable. I also like to play lots of other sports including golf, tennis, rugby, cricket and darts. In saying that I would not describe myself as a health freak and do enjoy a few drinks and a chunky Argentine steak. Also enjoy listening to music, mostly Bob Dylan, The Kinks and The Kings Of Leon at the moment. I played bass guitar in a band a few years back to mixed reviews (bad and very bad).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Going to the World Cup in Germany and meeting people from all over the globe having a good time. The hosts in particular made the event very special.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can cook a few traditional dishes such as Cornish Pastys and can to rustle up some food if anyone gets hungry. Aside from that I have an English teaching qualification and can explain the offside rule.
