About Me


I love life, try to do as many different things in different ways as I can.


I'm an energetic person, belong to far too many things, but at least I'm never bored. What do my friends say about me? I hate to think! I guess I'm usually cheerful and fairly outgoing. Most of them seem amazed because I walk such a lot, though luckily I do know a few other adventurous spirits. I like life to be exciting, in a low-key sort of way, so I'm always trying different new things. When I'm out I will talk to anybody anywhere who'll talk to me (though I hope I do know when to be quiet!).


I know it's a cliche, but I think life is for living. My God is in Nature - when I go off into the countryside walking, I really feel I'm connecting with something beyond myself. That's also when I get inspiration for whatever creative projects I'm engaged in.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Not much. Have however had several delightful visitors and that has laid to rest any doubts I initially had. Over the years I've done lots of hostelling, hitchhiking, camping, staying with friends. I find that travel restores my faith in human nature, because people are always so kind. I'm sure I will increasingly enjoy CouchSurfing, both as a host and a guest.


I love to go on long walks, I like people watching, going on public transport. My introverted side likes to read and write. I run a poetry group at the local Yacht Club, have just written a play (my first - awaiting audience reaction at a playreading!), and have a wide network of writing buddies. My travelling is independent and inexpensive - I'd rather rough it for 6 weeks than go in luxury for a week. I'm still fit enough to camp out, walk miles, jog and garden, for which I'm grateful. I also love gardening, cooking, knitting, listening to BBC Radio 3 and 4. At various times have done a lot of skiing and sailing. Like going out to eat or having friends round.

Music, Movies, and Books

My tastes are very eclectic. I couldn't possibly list them all in this space, and would create distortions.

Working as a taxi driver in Key West, Florida

Teach, Learn, Share

Perhaps just my general approach to life? Who I am and stuff I've done and experienced? However, I think they have something special to share.
