About Me


Always planning our next holiday!


I love travel, and discussing all aspects of it with people - I guess it's my passion, now if I can just win the lotto, I can commit my life to seeing the world...sigh.

Also, !big annoying dog alert! Shadow, the brilliant lab mix dog! So, if you don't like dogs...he is much better behaved now that he is 7+ yrs old. There will be an initial jump up for a minute or two, which can be overwhelming as he is large, but now he's pretty calm soon after - he'll even curl up on the couch with you and use you as a pillow! And will be your greeter, maybe even steal your socks if you leave your room door open, leading to a merry chase around the house.


Personal philosophy...hmmm...I just hope to meet people from all over, and just be able to share a little bit with them, and hopefully give them some good memories, good meals.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing



Have met some great people from all over the world - well, Europe, Canada, Australia and US, but still - want to meet more!
As of Dec 2014 hosted 50 folks and have been hosted 14+ times (thanks Ric- 3 times! And Lesley and Mike - 4 times)


Scrapbooking, travel, digital photography, surfing the net for travel ideas and planning our next vacation, usually months in advance. Cooking (always a good hobby).
1. Victoria Park - if you like the great outdoors and a leisurely walk thru the woods.
2. Tidal Bore - sorta cool - really good around full moon - higher tides. Also Tidal Bore rafting in Stewiacke (20 min drive)
3. Colchester Historical Museum - hmm, haven't been there for ages, but I'm sure it's still interesting.
Within driving distance - Pictou (30 min) - nice little town with ship Hector and a museum about the ship. Tatamagouche (35 min) - seen on CBC TV show - "The Week the Women Went". Joggins (60 min - or more - long time since I've been there) - the fossil cliffs! Shubenacadie Wildlife Park - 25min drive...Canadian wildlife, nice place.

Music, Movies, and Books

U2!!!!!!!!!!Green Day, canadian stuff(Tragically Hip, Our Lady Peace, The Trews, Matthew Good).
Love Dean Koontz, Stephen King, my hubby likes science fiction/fantasy. Movies -Bourne trilogy, Lord of the Rings, Matrix. Dark Knight. TV - love Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel(I know, not on anymore, but I can still love it). Arrested Development. Extras - Ricky Gervais - brilliant!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I LOVED Venice - been 4 times and I just think it's magical! And if in Rome, go to Appia Antica - so close yet such a diff setting. Also, climbed up Mt Vesuvius. (Does taking a header off a mtn bike in Switzerland count? I had amazing bruises!)

What I Can Share with Hosts

Hmm, hubby and I are pretty quiet - non-smokers and non-drinkers. We do love to chat, but don't expect you to spend all day showing us around - unless you want to! Been hosting and surfing since 2007, so we know how we like to be treated when hosting, and how we should act when being hosted!
