About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To push the bounds of opportunity and explore the results.

ABOUT ME

We are a friendly and engaging family that welcome visitors to stay. There are 3 of us and a number of animals (two cats and two dogs), none of whom bite.
We work from home and are here most of the time. That having been said please be aware that we are generally very busy work wise during normal working hours (8 to 5 Mon to Fri),
and will not be available to accompany you on explorations, or offer to take you places during these times.
One of the family members (Siobhan), is of school going age so our ability to go out on school weekday nights is also limited to around nine.
The weekends however are different, and we are quite happy to accompany you, take you places, and introduce you to our friends. If you prefer doing your "own thing", you are also free to do so.

PHILOSOPHY

Do unto others as you would have done unto you.
"Be the change you want to see in the world" - Ghandi

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We have been hosting couch surfers, and hopefully in the process of doing so we contribute positively to their experience of travelling, couch surfing and enjoyment of our little part of the world.
A collection of small contributions that add to our trust and understanding of one another as people and embrace the philosophies of Ubuntu.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We have been hosting for a while now and generally the experience has been fantastic.
Are expecting more and will continue to welcome the couch surfing community into our home.
Will hopefull be able to get out there and surf someone else's couch in the not too distant future.
