About Me

Live each day as an adventure, let go of the heavy materia and travel light.

I normally live in South Africa, now I am in Germany, as I came to visit and help my children with their 3 newborn, and decided to stay on for a while. So I am renting a small flat which I share. Almost everything I have is from the dump or acquired whilst helping friends move or clear up home.
I am mentally and physically active and move fast, mostly cycling here, when in SA lots of hiking and swimming.
I have worked for WOOFF many years, also lived and cared for homes, people and farms in the outback of southern Africa, sometimes far from other humans.

Live to the full, make mistakes and learn from them. Laugh, sing, love and dance. Life is for sharing, having fun and being crazy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would love to have C/s of a mature age group.

I will rather visit a person than a place and muck in with what needs to be done.
Keen to house sit or exchange. At my home is in SA I have exchanged good experiences but I am reluctant to take in those who are just looking for a substitute hotel.


My interests include most things that are related to living and loving, how/where, what people do, what makes them smile or fear.

  • singing
  • beauty
  • dancing

Music, Movies, and Books

I love most music except Techno. There are great authors and interesting books/movies that remain imprinted in my mind yet I generally don't have favourites.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

deciding to bring my children into this world in my way............. no hospital, doctor or midwife.

Teach, Learn, Share

There is such simple pleasure in sewing, cooking, shaping my own space with the abundance that surrounds me. I have done mosaic and wood work, pottery, weaving, growing vegetables, designing in and outside, literally building and plumbing.
Then there is the challenge of living happily with little money and material wealth yet not forfeiting beauty or comfort. And there is sure to be plenty yet to be learnt from others, so come and teach me your way.
