I'm a British academic. I've lived in China, Spain, Germany, Australia and now South Africa over the last few years doing research in a number of different scientific disciplines. I love to travel, cook and take photos of my adventures: (website hidden)
I'm a huge foodie and enjoy talking about food as well as eating it. I'm also very much into literature and films from around the world.
I'm a very simple traveler and don't need particularly fancy amenities, I will regular stay with friends on their couches if needs be but of course if a bed is available that is always a bonus. I have used Couchsurfing for many years and have hosted around 200 people from all over the world.
My philosophy is generally that we will not regret the things we do but the things that we won't do.
