About Me


To write, educate, be of benefit; explore the beauty of the world before it all gets trashed


Too old to tell you ALL about me! But briefly, I've travelled to over 50 countries & lived in 7. Was in Asia over 5 yrs, inc 3 in Viet Nam. Last 3 years in Kenya. I'm passionate about respecting Mother Earth & treating animals kindly & try to enlighten & inspire on these issues through my writing and teaching. I love the ocean, elephants, reading, writing, World Music, dancing, yoga, languages, exploring other cultures, etc etc. I was based in Nairobi the last year or so & also spent a few months in Lamu doing research for a book.
In previous lives I was a carpenter, tree trimmer, gardener, sailor, holistic therapist & rabble rouser!


Be kind, respect & protect the Earth & all our kin for future generations

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I was a 'dormant' member for several years - had not managed to find a couch in my previous attempts in China & Vietnam & forgot all about CS most of time in Kenya. Currently in UK after 8 years absence, but preparing to launch off into S America.


Not much formally, but plenty informally with good friends in past years & weeks.
