About Me


To go from bland to bold - to figure out the next phase of my life


I did the backpacking thing oh so long ago, just been waiting for my kids to grow up (well thats questionable), to get back on the road again.
Guess you could say my husband and I are one of those yin/yang couples.
Hes the kind, sensitive, serving type, me - well the no-nonsense, tell as it is kinda gal.
Hes at peace in the mountains, me the ocean.
Hes "a little big of country, I'm a little bit of Rock N Roll" I love to natter, him not so much. He likes fishing, me - well thats boring.
The list goes on and on but in the end we come together with our sense-of-humour, our love for people, travel and each other.


Every person was created equal and should be treated that way. I am pretty open to whatever a persons believes or life-style, thats up to them, infact it makes life interesting.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have yet to find out more about this and how I can pariticpate.


I am new to this, however I have been sleeping on peoples floors and vise versa for years. I even put a family of 5 up for 6 weeks and another time a family of 6 for 3 weeks while in transition, people thought I was nuts.


I love to travel of course, meet people, have a good natter over an odd glass of wine, and I love my backyard, one of the few places where there are trees in Fresno.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Along my travels and I have seen some amazing places, I have gone from staying at a coconut planation in a mansion to a mat on the floor with no running water. Thats the interesting thing about travelling and the people you meet along the way.
