About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live life, make new friends and make sure the world keeps spinnin'

ABOUT ME

Hello, Dia Dhuit, Bonjour, Merhaba, Dobro Dan!

My name Conor, an Irish man who's been living and breathing life across three continents for the past four years.
I absolutely love having a great time with fellow travellers from all around the work, sharing our stories, laughs, drinks and somewhat decent cooking skills late into the night.
I originally hail from the capital of Ireland, Dublin and since moving to Canada in 2010 I have travelled and worked my way through the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
At the moment I am living in beautiful Scotland, and I have recently completed a four month trek through Turkey and eastern Europe. Can't wait to meet more great people along the road in the future.

PHILOSOPHY

Life goes by so fast, that if you don't stop and look around now and again, you might just miss it.

Finally got a blog going.... http://www.thecontinentaldrifters.com :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Met two crazy couchsurfers in Serbia and from then on enjoyed meeting / hosting some couchsurfers in Dublin. Since then it's been a blast surfing through Europe and hosting lovely folks from around the world :)

Interests

Listening to crazy and bizarre stories, tasting the good (and bad) local drinks, exploring abandoned buildings, scouting a local football game in a foreign land, getting lost down little city alleyways and large green forests, discussing strange science fiction/futuristic ideas, random spontaneous adventures, reading, listening to new music and so so much more!

So far on m yadventures I have snowboarded and stalked Grizzly bears in Canada, caught a solar eclipse, crashed our jeep in the Australian Outback, explored the haunted castles of Ireland, hot air ballooned my way across scenic Cappodocia in Turkey, saw Dracula in Transylvania, smoked fine cigars in Havana, chased Nelly around Loch Ness in Scotland and most recently got my lifetimes radiation dosage in Chernobyl.
