About me


I'm a well traveled bloke.
Miss the hostel lifestyle, despite having turned 30.. recently..ish.

I'm a biker (motor, not pedal!), play guitar and enjoy various typical western activities.

I'm not a clubber, preffering a coffee shop or pub, where I can hear my friends.. ;-p

All in all I believe in love, respect and honesty.
I'm happy to share my home, and all I ask in return is that you put that love back out there.. help a stranger in any way you can.. a smile to a sad looking soul on the bus, or give a surfer a couch... and all in between.
Oh and we've started collecting fridge magnets too.. so if you see one at the airport, feel free.. but no biggy if not :-p
