I love travelling, but have started to get pretty tired of hostels. My favourite city (other than London) is Berlin. I also love Eastern Europe - nowhere does beer, vodka or meat like it. I really want to go to Portland, Oregon for my next trip. Or Helsinki.
My favourite book is Less Than Zero by Bret Easton Ellis and my favourite bands are LCD Soundsystem and the Smiths. I have the tattoos to prove it.
I'll watch any movie, but documentaries (about anything) and comedies are my favourite. I'll watch TV if I'm forced but I'd rather listen to music, the radio, read, stare into space.... anything.
What else can't I live without? Well I am recently engaged, so I suppose I have to say my future wife... and our pet rats. And coffee, but only the good stuff.
To have me (or us) as a guest? We are super polite, tidy and respectful. We have a general disdain for rude or obnoxious travellers, and always want to immerse ourselves in the local culture. I work in travel , so understand both sides of the industry.
I don't have a life motto, but 'life is what happens whilst you're making other plans' is always worth remembering. That, or 'stop moaning about stuff'.
