About Me

Please read profile before request :) .... I do not drink alcohol ... please read this over and over .. I have had guests constantly ask me out for a beer or to have a bottle of wine ... But I do not drink alcohol . I quit 15 years ago because I did not like it ...

If you host people I will always try to host you ..

if you do not include my secret question answer in your message first time there is no chance of getting a couch .. Couchsurfing is not a free AirBNB .. its about forming friendships with people .. and helping fellow travelers along their way ..I am here to help people and also to build up a World wide network of friends who I can meet up with when I am travelling ..

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I host and surf and I use Couchsurfing a lot when I am abroad to connect with other people .
When I host I like to spend time with my guests . cook a meal and maybe take a drive around the Countryside .. But I also like my guests to be independant
and take themselves off to the City alone for some exploring ..

My favourite food is Champ Irish potato . please tell me your favourite food when you message me in your couch request so I know you have read my profile ... if not I will not host you ...


I like ..Cooking .. Walking .. Driving ...Eating ...sleeping .. shopping ...working ..Solo travelling ..People ..Nature..Food..More food..Eating..Smiling..Facebook..Campervans..Cars..Interpals..Facebook...Motorbikes...

Music, Movies, and Books

Irish music ...Christy Moore ..The Furey's ...The Cranberries ... Coldplay ..Snow Patrol ... Oasis ...Eminem ...Swedish House Mafia ...Anything recent ...Favourite book is The Alchemist

"For what it`s worth: it`€™s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There`s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you`€™re proud of. If you find that you`re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again."

I have started again ... many times :)
