About Me

I'm a health-conscious, non-smoking/drinking or drug-taking vegan and would like to think of myself as being intelligent, inquisitive, funny, friendly and outgoing!

I love travelling and am keen to see as much of this beautiful planet of ours as possible. In fact I may happen to be based in the UK but first and foremost, in the words of Charles Chaplin, "I am a citizen of the world." Having said that though, I particularly love Germany and Italy and plan to settle in either country one day.

My philosophy:

Always try to be part of the solution, not just part of the problem.
Keep a green bough in your heart and the singing bird will come.
If you can't be a sun, don't be a cloud.
Think about those that need help.
The best is always yet to come.
These ARE the good old days.
Keep your life simple.
It's ok to be happy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To travel cheaply, assist fellow travellers and make life-enriching connections!


Am open to most things and new experiences, but particular interests are: environmental issues; animal welfare; art; poetry; history, classic literature; ballet; theatre; stand-up comedy; music of all kinds, but especially rock, pop, folk and classical; film (of all eras, but especially early film, from 1890s–1940s)... ah – and meeting cool people!

Music, Movies, and Books

I love far too many to be able to single out only a few. Tell me yours instead – we probably have lots of faves in common!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I love and am loved.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've a lot of positivity to share, but it's thoroughly grounded in reality!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm always positive and happy: life's too short and too beautiful to be down about anything for long! I'm keen to learn and experience new things. If we both have time we can spend it together but if not I'm very self-sufficient. Am a low profile guest and always travel light: you'll hardly know I'm there and certainly won't know I've been – apart from the little warm glow I'll leave in your heart!
