About Me


Eat my way round the spoon at a time


I'm a mature individual, with a curious personality, some sense of adventure, a whack sense of humor, a hopeless romantic who believes in happy ever after and will continue to explore every fantasy.... lastly somewhat rebellious and strongly believes the show is not over until.....Well it's over!!


One candle loses nothing but lighting another

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


It’s January 2012 & I have just returned from India where I couch surfed extensively, i.e., not necessarily only staying with a host but also interacting with CS in various cities across India.
I’ve not engaged with that many CS in their own cities but have met some CS in SA & some other CS on travels and based on this experience I am going to make a statement saying that Indian people are amazing. They are warm, kind, and extremely generous not only in sharing a couch or a meal but with their time & energy. They have a genuine interest in you & your well being that just transcends anything I‘ve come across and my wish is that they experience the same wherever they may travel. BIG UPS INDIA!!!
