About Me

New to travelling and couchsurfing. I'm nerdy and academic, but also adventurous! I love to discuss philosophy, global issues and history. But I also love to socialise and party. I especially love live music and outdoor festivals, and especially especially psytrance parties. I also love nature in all its forms, but there is something uniquely peaceful and beautiful to me about being immersed lush green mountains and observing animals in the wild. I'm vegan, so it would be great to connect with other vegans or people who can point me in the right direction of what to eat in their cities. Which brings me to food, god I love food, I find myself cooking something new weekly. The next adventure I'm saving up for is a circumnavigation of Vietnam by motorbike, a country I adore and have been very happy in for the last 2 years. I love all things nerdy from fantasy and science fiction, including dungeons and dragons. I can consider myself super open minded to new experiences, and ideas. I can be shy at first, but get a few drinks in me and I'm loads of fun I swear!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Hoping to meet interesting people and travel more cost effectively, while providing the same opportunity for others.

Music, Movies, and Books

Ah too much! Here are some genres: stoner and psychedelic rock, alternative rock, hi-tech psytrance and darkpsy, a little bit of rap and smattering of everything else in-between. I even love the odd bit of Mongolian throat singing and 80's Chinese communist party music.
Lord of The rings, Memento (and all his other films), waking life (and all his other films except boyhood), American Psycho and again can't list em all.
Most of my reading goes to philosophy articles and the like, but in my past I loved reading all things fantasy.
