About Me

CURRENT MISSION

live and learn

ABOUT ME

Having recently graduated I am taking the first tentative steps into the 'real' world whatever that means and whatever it may entail. I would like to enjoy my travels and help others enjoy theirs. Not brilliant at hellos and worse still at goodbyes I enjoy the actual journeying preferably when I have no preconceptions and my mind is left to roam.

PHILOSOPHY

Have fun but not at the expense of others.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have hosted many people from all over the world and have also couchsurfed myself. Being naturally nosey by nature or perhaps just plain curiosity I love the idea of seeing snippets of other's lives and other cultures in a way that staying at multinational hostels just can't do.

Interests

Interests: Music, sport, partying, traveling, art, weird and wonderful activities, speaking foreign languages, understanding other cultures.

Music, Movies & Books

Books: Catch 22, cider with Rosie, down and out in Paris and London, Catcher in the rye, Huckleberry Finn, Bonjour Tristesse, The naked and the Dead, Kafka, George Orwell, this kind of stuff. Music: Bob Dylan, folk, blues, flamenco, gypsy jazz, anything that has feeling essentially.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

sunrise and sunset do it for me. Despite being a daily occurrence they never fail to impress.

Teach, Learn, Share

An insight into brittish culture which you can't get from staying in a hotel; parties, places to go bars etc. but most of all brittish people. I enjoy learning of other people's opinion on brittish people and society.
