I'm a Canadian girl who lives in the small but charming town of Rosscarbery in the southwest of Ireland. (Wild and Wonderful West Cork) I live with my husband who is from Holland and our wee baby, Norah. I work for an organic vegetable farm, as well as look after some lively children.
Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do rather than the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Discover. Dream. -Mark Twain
Don't die wondering.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've hosted over 100 people, and surfed my way around a bunch of this beautiful world! Made some great friends along the way!
Being outside, cooking (plant based/wholefoods), swimming, yoga, massage, reading, and of course traveling, far and wide!
Music, Movies, and Books
Music - A mishmash of things, I love bluegrass, Indian classical, reggae, blues, old country, Balkan-gypsy type stuff, 50's-60's-70's rock and roll, traditional Irish, ambient, soul...
Movies - The Darjeeling Limited, Broken Circle Breakdown, Tracks, Wendy and Lucy, Old Joy, Into The Wild, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, 127 Hours, The Last Waltz, Lost in Translation, anything by Jim Jarmusch, Alejandro Iñárritu, any good documentary!
Books - Travel and adventure books! Non-fiction, mostly.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share
I want to learn to surf & knit.
I can teach vegan, whole-foods cooking and baking.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I'm keen on cooking and can offer a meal, I also love animals and children so could help with either of those... I suppose we've got a few travel stories to share, and maybe a book or music swap!
