About Me


My mission is to learn more about Utrecht, and enjoy life.


Woman, myself, photographer, wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, traveler, friend, expat, teacher, learner, observer, geek, and participant.


I have learned to be observant, a good listener, and compassionate. I have learned that people are very different and similar in the same stroke. I try to live and let live as much as possible. The "golden rule" is a good one.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I enjoy meeting people for events in Utrecht, and hosting travelers and meeting people as we travel around Europe.

I am doing a photography project of taking portraits of couchsurfers, so I hope that if you stay with me, you'll permit me to take your photo.


I have met wonderful people via this website while traveling around South America and like to host people when there is time and energy.


Meeting new people, photographing cool things, learning about new cultures, visiting interesting places and improving my language skills
