  • Descrição

    Hey! I'm Glen, a 23 year old maths graduate, soon to be a Phd candidate, planning to explore more of the world for a year before starting out.

    I was lucky enough to have grown up in a pretty little village, called Arnside, in England's Lake District. After secondary school I moved to Manchester to start a 4 year masters degree in maths which I have just now finished... thank god! After a long time getting puzzled by abstract maths I'm ready to take a trip back to the real world :)

    For this trip I'm thinking about travelling by bike / interrail with some workaway pit-stops on along the way. I'm an experience junky so anything a bit different would be great! My main hope with a host is that we can get to know eachother, do a bit of cultural exchange, the usual, and hopefully learn something along the way. I don't view this platform as a way to get cheap accomadation to prelong a trip, what I love most about travelling is the experiences and the people you get to meet that otherwise wouldn't ever cross your path!

    Random (hopefully interesting) facts:
    My dad lives in China and I've been there for about 1 year on and off.
    I've walked 250 miles across the scottish highlands with just a hammock and tarp.
    I hitchhiked from the Uk to Azerbaijan in a failed attempt to get to China without flying.
    I'm not using any shampoo or soap (except hands of coures!) this year... please trust me, I don't stink!
    I'm trying to get rid of all my prejudices by meeting everyone and seeing everything!
