About Me

I live in a Cohousing community overlooking Sooke Harbour in one of the most beautiful areas in the world. Nearby are many beaches that roll with Pacific ocean waves, as well as beautiful hiking trails, and the famous Sooke Potholes. I enjoy hosting guests and have one wide twin bed and a foamy for a sleeping bag on the floor.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've travelled a lot and always appreciated a bed with hosts who can tell me about the nearby sites to see. In another life I think I was a hotel concierge... I love helping people make the most of their vacation.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Sat at Base Camp Everest and marvelled at the the skill of the Sherpas I met.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm always interested in learning something new! Bring your skills, and I'll share what I have ... Moved within the year so I'm leaning about the area: can offer a ride from the ferry or airport, some touring about to places I've not yet seen, good humour and a love of delicious British Columbia wines.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Long chats about places we've been and those where we long to go -- and interest in what interests you!
