About Me

✿✿ CURRENT MISSION

I just want to enjoy life and be me. :-) And have all the experiences i can.

✿✿ ABOUT ME

I'm a girl who never did grow up! I'm a sci-fi geek Tikiphile. My kids are grown & gone, so i've been on a travel adventure this last few years!

Personality-wise, i'm extremely open-minded and rather easy going with a strong sense of adventure. I can be a quiet recluse with dreams of homesteading & sustainability, or a social butterfly who just wants to have fun & meet new people. An artist who has had 'painter's block' for a while now and am hoping that i will be able to pick up the brush again. But if not, no worries. There's SO much to do in this world!

When it comes to personal habits... i'm a "use a pot/plate, then clean that pot/plate immediately after using it" sort of person. I will not be making a mess in your house! My OWN house though, is another story. It's.. um.. 'relaxed', shall we say? ;-)

Whether we sit and exchange travel (or whatever) stories… or help each other practice languages/English accents … just sit and meditate... or you put me to work... i’d like to earn my keep any way you’d like!

I started my "Life on the Road" adventure in Yellowknife, NWT (Canada), with one full year there in 2011/12. I just needed to be in the Arctic and live with the Aurora Borealis (it was WONDERFUL)! Then instead of heading back north to Iqaluit in 2014 like i had originally planned, i headed over to the UK and Europe and spent 10 incredible months on the road living in youth hostels! Now, i can't wait to get back on the road again!

✿✿ PHILOSOPHY

I believe our prime goal is to be happy and learn as much as we can in this life. Sometimes we succeed, sometimes we don't. But it's all in the journey, isn't it? I think that everything, both good and bad, happen for a reason. I like to look at the bad as learning experiences. And hoo boy, have i had some doozies! Just look back and smile.... :-)

~ There is no past. There is no future. There is only now, this very moment.

~ Favourite Quotes:

1) "If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of Energy, Frequency and Vibration"
---- Nikola Tesla ...(these words are my guide these days)

2) "We don't stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing"
---- George Bernard Shaw

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I wasn't able to do any couchsurfing during my last couple of journeys, but i hope to on my next, so that i can fully immerse in the local culture! So hopefully i'll have something to contribute soon...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Nothing, and i mean NOTHING (at least so far...) can compare to the Aurora Borealis dancing over your head so closely that you feel you can just reach up and touch it! Undulating like a huge horizon-to-horizon living Rocket Popsicle! Red to white to green. Breathtaking. A glimpse of the divine as far as i'm concerned. MAN i miss Yellowknife!
