About Me


HOLA A TOD@S DESDE Zaragoza. Normalmente vivo por las Alpujarras, Granada, ANDALUCÍA , Pero estioy aqui en la cuidad febrero hasta junio para trabajar

Hello everyone from Zargoza, where I am for a stint of work before heading back to Andalucia

Here in Zaragoza at the time of writing I have some more space and flexibility for hosting to be a poossibility. Only some nights when the person I live with leaves the space to me..

The situation probably wosnt go on for long...

If you´d like to contact me to request to stay please tell me which you prefer and why

Chips and curry sauce
Chips and gravy (vegan obvs!!)

Chips and mushy peas

Also essential stuff - would you ask for salt and vinager on the chips first???
Now back to my latest update here from the Alsmeria days, end of ´22!
Hey there!
I am an Apprentice bike mechanic in Roquetas del Mar 3 days a week, trying to avoid sleeping in the car!

Learn, laugh, love and shine


May 2015....another spring another update!

I have been riding the big sofa wave for a few years. I've been blessed to meet great people this way, hosts and surfers.

I am from England but I moved between different countries for a long time now, especially Guatemala, Central America. I love being surrounded by new and different cultural traditions, new kinds of food and meeting different people.

I am friendly . I like gardening, skateboarding and meeting people. I get daft about any kinds of vegetables and love cooking deep fried delights, often in industrial quantities.

I love to host travellers, but unfortunately I live in the middle of nowehere and have very limited living space

Mis pasiones: skateboarding el viaje y la vida.
Estoy muy agradecido a toda la gente que he encontrado

How do!
...Today Madrid!Yesterday Lancaster!Tomorrow...???

I created a profile in July 2007 when I rolled up in Manchester, England: the city of raving, The Happy Mondays and chips n curry. Not long after I was in Huddersfiled, Yorkshire... Pies, Peas and Gravy? I then heaved on to Lancaster: the spiritual home of erdy gerdy music...

From there I randomly appeared in Madrid The city of horas extras (overtime), tortilla española sandwiches and a fantastic following for Critical Mass...

Enjoy yourself before it's too late!

La vida es un viaje de halon...hay que gozar cada minuto del camino, la gente y los paisajes.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I wounder through life trying to enjoy every day to the max and give good energy to the people I meet on the way. Meeting people, joking, eating together, planting together, dancing ...I am blessed to enjoy things like this... has given me many opportunities to make friends with people I dont know

Since I first became aware of the website it has opened many doors to me. It's a blessing to meet people who open their house to you and share a little bit of their time and life.
I make myself at home in any place
