Traveling, researching family history, photography and making new friends
I am retired from video production and kindergarten teaching. I spent three wonderful years caring for my aging/ailing mom. She's gone now, but with me in spirit, and I am embarking on a genealogy adventure to discover my/our ancestry. I'm starting in the USA and hope to eventually travel to Germany, Finland, Norway, Scotland and Holland. I am a photographer and love to discover the uniqueness of any city I visit.
Friendship and understanding can build bridges to world peace.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I lived in Arizona for five years and recently returned to my hometown of Minneapolis, MN. Excited to be here. I honestly missed the changing seasons. I would love to share the beauty of Minnesota with couch surfers.
When I lived in AZ I traveled back and forth to MN. I loved seeing the different states. One of my favorite spots is Fowler, Kansas, where I couch surfed and made a life long friend in Debbie Thomas.
Photography, gardening, the environment, sailing.
Music, Movies, and Books
On my iPod I have everything from classical Mozart to good old fashioned rock'n'roll. I like books set in historical time frames, and murder mysteries that aren't too graphic.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I went swimming in a Cenote (underground river) in Mexico with my daughter and grandson.
Teach, Learn, Share
We must spread peace one person at a time.
