HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Our house is open to receive guests. Have had unforgettable, glorious experiences as a CS traveler.
Traveled to Spain and Portugal for four weeks in late spring of 2010 and had 7 fabulous Couch Surfing experiences. It was my first big trip, done entirely on my own. Introduced my husband to CS on our honeymoon in 2012.

Music, Movies, and Books
Favorite movies: Schindler's List, Billy Elliott. Music: Time to Say Goodbye by Sarah Brightman and Pachelbel's Canon. Author/teacher: Eckhart Tolle.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Made a silent retreat for 30 days in a small town in Louisiana.
Teach, Learn, Share
I would like to think that I have some wisdom to share. Some of the most enlightened beings I have met have included children in a school for students with developmental delays, and other little folks 3 or 4 years old.
What I Can Share with Hosts
