About Me

Ive been encouraged to join the community due to the experience of my brother who lives in London and has often hosted . Having made friends and kept in touch, he has subsequently asked me to give hospitality here in N. Italy so in reality Ive been an unofficial member for a while now. Im recently widowed and my children grown up so Ive discovered how difficult it is to be a single traveller Travel companies and hotels dont like singles. My first tentative steps out in the world alone and the hope of finding friends in my chosen destinations make Couchsurfers a potential Godsend. Heres hoping.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

For company. To meet new people. To broaden my horizons. All the usual , possibly banal reasons, they just happen to be true.


Developing interests. My adult life was spent bringing up a family and like the majority of the people in the Western world finding myself cash poor and equally time poor so didnt have a lot of time to develop any interests except relaxing on the sofa enough before Mon came around again. However, I love skiing but too expensive, go to the pool at least 3 times a week, cycle a lot and walk when I can. The terrain is very flat around here so not exactly hard work. Reading a lot and an active interest in current affairs could be included.

Music, Movies, and Books

70s It takes me back to my youth. 90s dance music. It sounds so tame now but I love it.
Forrest Gump, Blood Diamond, The Hunger Games series. Mean Girls

The Human Stain by Philip Roth, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Middlemarch and for Chick Lit Maeve Binchey, Marion Keyes etc they are so harmless and the ending is always happy.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Landed a permanent teaching position in the Italian State system. Nothing short of a miracle!

Teach, Learn, Share

Just keep an open mind and never be judgemental if you can avoid it.

Id like to share the information that my keyboard is refusing to find an apostrophe. Im not illiterate.
