About Me

Love to travel and meeting fellow travellers.

There's a saying once a traveller... always a traveller. Even if you hang up those travelling shoes. I always tend to spot a traveller where I go.

Love meeting different cultures and enjoying a laugh.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Knowing how difficult it is to sometimes get around if you don't have the correct info or itinerary. I know what it feels like to 'doss' at a friends place on the couch as to save an extra quid or two.

Always nice to help out a fellow traveller. Even is it means to provide a couch as a means to see a new sunrise in our beautiful country :-)

I live close to some of the most beautiful scenic areas in our country. A must see for any traveller. So even if its a stop over to a next destination. I'll be happy to share some pointers as to what/where to and not to...

If time allows I will be able to assist with sightseeing in and around the area (Dullstroom, Lydenburg, Sabie, Graskop, Hazyview, Nelspruit ect.) and off course not to forget the Kruger Park :-)))

Ok... Update. I have since moved to another place in South Africa. Kimberley, Diamond capital of South Africa and also the place of the Big Hole. Any person/s coming to South Africa, I can still assist with the itinerary above and will be able to provide a couch for person/s planning to visit Kimberley... So start Googling Kimberley its rich history and touristy places to see around here...


Being outdoors. Spending time with friends.

Enjoy good company. A good red wine. Big fire and a "lekker braai".

Doing adventure activities, motor biking and some 4x4.

Music, Movies, and Books

Not many books lately. Don't think studies count. Doing part time studies, hopefully finishing this year and will take a break from all forms of books for a while.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Packing my bag, and boarding a plane to the UK back in 1999. What a journey that lasted two and a half years :-)

Teach, Learn, Share

All I can teach is... some tricks to my pet dog Charlie. But as he ages, doing tricks is not his best point anymore.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share what is needed. If I don't have it, I'll make a plan to get it :-)

Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Lesotho, Luxembourg, Monaco, Mozambique, Netherlands, Scotland, Spain, Swaziland, Switzerland, United Kingdom
