I am at the moment travelling with a book that I have made, promoting it in libraries, museums and organisations.
I am a bit of a quiet one, but I do like to be social, meet people, do things together. I was born in South Africa, but my family moved to Ireland when I was small and we lived in a community for most of my life. When I was a teenager I became very ill and during that time I wrote a book called Dear Stranger. I had a suprising recovery when I was 18 and then later I decided to hand print this book, which I have been doing for the last years while living in Sweden. Now the book is finished, and as there are only 230 copies of it I am traveling with it to museums, libraries and communities within Europe distributing it.
well, its from Gandhi, and quite well known
"be the change you want to see in the world"
I believe we all have gifts to give to the world, that we all have a task on earth and that it is important to act on this, to become it, prepare ourselves for our task and embrace who we are and what we can do.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I would like to do couch surfing during this travel as it is a special journey and feels as though it would be something nice to share with people and meet people in, rather than staying in hostels or places where there is no conversation or meeting.
So far I have had no couch surfing experience, and I do not even have a home for the moment to invite people to, but I am looking forward to a moment when I can. For now, I hope to have the opportunity to meet new people on my journey in Europe.
I am interested in art, books, gardening, music, new ideas for this changing world and nature.
I have travelled quite a bit, mainly in Europe and the Middle East, and often to visit friends or to work on a project.
Teach, Learn, Share
I think the biggest offering I have is to share stories about people I have met, communities I know and new forms of education that are developing. I have lived for many years close by to a Youth Initiative training where each year 40 people came from around the world to develop their ideas, get to know how to run a project and build up a platform for change. It can be interesting for those I couch surf with to get to know some of these things, whatever the interest is.
