About Me

I have always loved traveling and going on road trips, I am self-employed and work from home most of the time.
I am a very open-minded person with a good sense of humor
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I am NOT new to hosting, I just thought I would host again because I have more time now that I'm not so busy working.
Last year I did the North Coast 500 on a road trip and spent 7 days driving and seeing all the amazing scenery Scotland has to offer, I covered 1000 miles in the 7 days.
Christmas 2023 I spent at Karvault House Hotel, this is the most remote hotel in mainland Britain and is totally off-grid,
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If I offer to host you and you can't be bothered to message me back or sit and wait to see if you get a better offer and you have been online at different times I will just withdraw the offer. GOOD MANNERS COST NOTHING !!!
Too many now are just on for a free place to stay.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COUCHSURFING IS NOT A FREE BED AND BREAKFAST,
Yes, it is Free for true Couchsurfers who want to share cultures and spend quality time with the host.
You know, if you know what Couchsurfing is all about.

if this is not what you want, find a hostel or hotel where you can spend as much time as you want in the room that you PAY for.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SO PLEASE DO NOT JUST JOIN TO GET FREE ACCOMMODATION BECAUSE YOU DO NOT WANT TO PAY FOR YOUR BUSINESS TRIP, OR MOVE TO LIVE IN THE UK.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Helping travelers enjoy their stay in my home city, helping them to see the places of interest and share food and experiences, also makes my house into a home when hosting.

Music, Movies, and Books

I don't actually read a lot, most things I have learned in life have been through the experience.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have driven a 4x4 to Morocco and back with a group of friends.

Also, I restored my 200-year-old house on my own, from a ruin to a modern comfy place to live in, this took 5 years
