About Me


To make contacts with people from other countries


I am a former rower, astrologer, writer. I enjoy travel, particularly to France. Learning to weave, so the house is full of yarn.


Why is Mona Lisa smiling? Because da Vinci told her to!

My philosophy of travel is to enjoy the flavor of various locations, and to learn about the country and its natives. I do not travel just to add another country to a list.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have mostly hosted other people at my home; I'm still waiting to take advantage of others' hospitality!


Books, film, gardening, cooking, crafts, travel. When I was younger, I would go hiking and camping with friends all over Washington State, so I am familiar with a lot of places around here.
