About Me


to enjoy my freedom from work, parents, kids, obligations, expectations, conventions and irritations, if you understand what i like this is excellent


whacky, energetic grandmother who loves life and is rather unconventional. now that i have all my time to myself for the first time in my life i want to meet many new people by hosting and travelling to places i haven't seen yet, (like all round australia, canada, alaska, patagonia, the caribbeans), heaven knows how far i will get....can't be slotted into any category
as i've never fitted into any box. i'm smart, quick, funny and generous but take no bull or tolerate any -isms. love having guests around.


tolerance, generosity, sharing, giving and taking graciously, spreading peace and kindness, laughter instead of anger and frustration

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


by talking to folks, mostly 50+, hosting occasionally and planning big trip soon, to see lovelies who have invited me.


well, people have been surfing my couches and floors as soon as i had my own digs 40 years ago....otherwise as above


do you have a week?

Music, Movies, and Books

all that are worth it, don't get me started and don't let me into a book/music shop with my credit card....
