*** I am more of a last minute host as I rent a room some of the time and often do not know where I will be in a months time. I will offer private room when I know they are empty or mattress in my room ***
NOT HOSTING SEPTEMBER OCTOBER sorry.
Will check for last minute hosts when I have space.
Only ask to stay if you have at least a reference and have some of that good ole couchsurfing spirit about you. Cheers!
To make the most of each present moment. Be creative!
Curious, resourceful, upbeat and at times solitary.
Empathy, gratitude, live today for who knows what the future holds.
Culture culture I see as much as I can as I get, why I stay in London.
"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step into the music he hears, however measured or far away." Henry David Thoreau.
I remember reading this when i was 14, then 20 years on i started to really hear different drummers and started on a samba journey.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Some days i am the sailor, but these days, for the time being, i am mostly the port.
I host nowadays mainly on the Emergency couch group as I don't always have a spare bed.
I organise events in London. Free culture uberall!
Couchsurfing has revolutionised the way I travel. I travel when I can and am grateful for the CS community to host me, or meet up with me. I have met some great friends through it.
photography, cycling, outdoor swimming, sauna, salsa, psychology, balkan brass, bbqs, feeling the sunshine, meeting kindred spirits, synchronicity, cooking with friends, solitude, horizons, playing with words, lying in my hammock, dancing or any combination.
- outdoor activities
- world cup
- cold water swimming

Teach, Learn, Share
I can share my music, travel tales, life's antidotes, the words that get lost in translation.
I can take you for a pomegranate juice in Brixton.
I love to cook for friends. I make kombucha and kimchi and happy to share my methods.
We can sit in the garden for a mate (an argentinian tea i love to drink) and then who knows where the conversation will go.
I can tell you how to enjoy london on the cheap - I am a culture vulture without a stash of cash- if you’re lucky we can see some theatre or gigs as I get cheap tickets.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I have a hard drive full of interesting art house films - not on Netflix that you can upload
I love music and will share my taste.
I can speak several languages so happy to practise!
I can share my vision of the world, whether global or local; how we can try to be more empathetic in an increasingly hard world
