欢迎ようこそ환영 (-: Relax, stay happy and patient :-) ترحيب


My parents sold our house when I was about 8years old. We planned a 6month trip around Australia in a caravan. It lasted 4years! Australia is big!! Later I covered 70 countries but aiming for 100. Settled a few years in Shanghai China. Currently working online with Expatriates. Basically I'm like a 'life coach' but with a lot more training and skill. I organise incredibly cool trainings for people interested in Personal Development and Coaching. I help a lot of people with BIG HEARTS get a better grip on the Money Game!
The heart is where it is at. We need more big hearts, generosity and compassion today more than ever.

I will host if it works and provided those I host will help out with small things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like helping people, it makes me happy. I love the Language and Culture Exchange also learning what motivates people and how we all think differently. I've also learned so much which helps me enlighten others.


Everyone has their different motives.
I strongly suggest trying to find out the person's motive before surfing/hosting. Is it:
-Free accommodation, Friendship, Desire, Language exchange, Culutral exchange, Something to do/try, They want to help you or sleep with u, They want to marry you, or maybe they simply love sharing their big house cause it's big and they want company.
Everyone has their motives. By determining motives you can increase safety and your experiences. :-)

Me, I think if I host people in my spare room, they can help my business or help with house maintenance.


:-) being happy, sharing laughter and smiles

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I'm very fortunate to be born in Australia. Its allowed me to earn money and travel. However, I know someone who has done it without arm, or legs.

Teach, Learn, Share

Processes, pathways, possibilities,

Clients pay me very well to have regular conversations with them. You can have it for free but no talk about the weather, politics or news.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Want $30USD Free. Use my link to create your first or second accounts on Airbnb account.
This is a great alternative for couples, or people that can't find couches. Every time you start a new account, a extra $30. I got a few other hacks like this just ask. I made 2k from Airbnb.

Normally have a spare room for guests.

CS IS NOT A DATING SITE. I believe we need to put respect, honesty and transparency first. So so many relationships form through CS. But first you have to respect each other.
