About Me


Work effectively, relax leasurely and love lastingly


We are laid back and relaxed - keen for fun and laughter, enjoying good wine, good food and interesting conversation. Happily married, unsatiably travelled, interestedly awaiting new opportunities to broaden our experience of people and places


Work is a means to an end - the end is travel!Travel to meet people, see places and enjoy opportunities and experiences to generate memories to fuel more dreams and expectations

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Providing excellent quality stay, support in travel, sharing good food & wine and loads of fun and laughter.Sometimes serious and reflective - mostly joyful chitter-chatter exchange of culture and experience...


We hosted several times so far - at first strangers,now friends - our expectations perfectly met by hosting like minded individuals - both older and younger - all in all a great experience! Allergic to CS's just needing a place to "crash". In support of CS platform and safety we only host verified members.
