About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to survive our world tour and hopefully become a little wiser...

ABOUT ME

We have decided to quit our jobs and take some time out of our careers in an attempt to see and experience a little bit more of the world.

I'm 26, Becky my wife is 29. At home in Brighton we both volunteer on the local lifeboat outside of that we love keeping active and drinking/eating out with our friends.

PHILOSOPHY

Was doesn't kill you, makes you stronger!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Currently traveling but love meeting new people and look forward to offering our couch or spare room in the future.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

A few couch surfing experiences so far with the majority being amazing and a couple 'interesting'! Without a doubt our travelling experience has been enhanced because of Couch Surfing and we look forward to getting involved in our local group and hosting once we get home. Countries surfed in so far:
India
Thailand
Australia
New Zealand
Chile

Music, Movies, and Books

Books
Books that teach you something, Bill Bryson is good for this. Books that you can't put down, Dan Brown, Robert Ludlum, Clive Cussler.

Read the God Delusion by Richard Dawkins recently...thought provoking.

Films
I can waste A LOT of time watching almost anything on TV but some of my favourite films would have to be Monty Python, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,pretty much anything with Robert De Niro, Samuel L Jackson, Jackie Chan or Nicolas Cage in...

Music
Over 4000 tracks on my ipod, very varied taste from classical right through to fairly heavy punk/metal (NOT death metal). Some of my favourites include Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Blink 182, Beastie Boys, Jack Johnson, James, John Williams, Faithless, Dave Pearce...

A good night could be heavy dance or heavy punk/metal (something you can mosh to), both because I can't dance! :-)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I'd like to think we've done a few cool things but I would say the most recent is that we cycled 2,500 miles across Spain and France carrying everything we needed and camping where we ended up.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teaching is fun if you know about what it is you are trying to teach.

I love to learn new things, especially if you can still remember it a week later...knowledge is power!

Sharing...experiences, yes definitely...food, get a plate because I eat really quick!

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Dominican Republic, Egypt, France, Gibraltar, Greece, India, Ireland, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In

United Kingdom
