About Me


soul nourishment


Born in NZ, raised in South Africa. Returned to NZ at 15 and found a theme of my life set in place. Travelled all over NZ.. in a car, in a van.. random adventures, many hitch-hikers, lots of stories..

Then off and away I went to Europe. Therein lies many a tale. Lately I've been appreciating moments in beautiful spaces around NZ, there are so many!

I'm a large bit kiwi, a little bit Scottish, a little bit Irish, a little bit Italian & a big bit of me. Part of my heart resides in Spain.

I am at my happiest when I'm involved in making things happen.. be they big or small. I've moved around a lot in my life & my friends are scattered far and wide! I love chance encounters.

My home is where I am, my roots are floating in the breeze..


"there is neither good nor evil, but thinking makes it so"

"There is no finish line. Love the journey."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


by believing there is good in every human being.
Also, I live, think and dream.
Sometimes I talk to strangers.


I have now hosted several random, wonderful people who appeared at opportune moments & enriched my life in big & small ways!

I thrive on random moments. Wonderful strangers with generous hearts have brightened my life on several occasions :-)
*the universe provides!*


I love to learn..
I have a practical mind and generally find a way to make things work (and find out how and why in the process)

Music, Movies, and Books

I love books that make me dream & music that makes me dance!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've seen the sun rise.. over and over again, every day, every week, every year.. for many many years.
It never ceases to amaze me :-)

Teach, Learn, Share

I believe in the importance of holistic health and well-being. I tried terribly hard, to squeeze myself into the sort of box that would produce a high-school teacher.. then I realised that I have no faith in our education system.

There are too many styles of learners, combined with too many variables.. and too many chiefs.

The world is a classroom, I continue my education in more organic ways...
