Travel, live peacefully, promote peace
Retired 77-yr-old teacher, have biked about a dozen solo trips in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Holland, Germany, Sweden, Portugal and Spain since 2003, and also Adventure Cycling Pacific Coast and parts of the Southern Tier Routes. Have hosted over 100 guests mainly through a cycling hosts group but a dozen or so with Couchsurfing.
I try to live by Gandhi's "Be the change you wish to see in the world" and live a peaceful existence with respect for the environment, which means minimal consumption.
Pourquoi je suis sur Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I mainly host through warmshowers.org, which is strictly for bicyclists, but discovered CS in France when a host recommended it; used it just a few times and have hosted just a few with CS. I'm partial to cyclists or foreign visitors, especially francophones.
COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE Nearly all experiences, whether as host or guest, have been positive.
All experiences, whether hosting or being the guest, have been good.
Peace & justice, biking, environment, African drumming, running, hiking, theatre, music, art, different cultures, and of course, travel, mainly by bike as long as I can do it.
Morceaux de musique, films et livres
Music generally classic or 50s & 60s old favorites. Books again the classics but also Barbara Kingsolver, Doris Lessing, Toni Morrison, Isabel Allende, Montana authors. Seldom go to movies & can't think of any titles at the moment.
Une aventure extraordinaire que j'ai vécue
Ran my first marathon at the age of 60. Qualified for, and finished the 2000 Boston marathon even though a January pulled hamstring (skiing fall) meant limited running, max 10K distance from February to the April marathon. Solo biking tours.
