About Me


I've been traveling for more than 3 decades and still am always thrilled by new people and places


Recently retired and moved to Bogota, Colombia! I'm loving it! Life is an adventure--we should enjoy it. Love to meet new and interesting people. I have a very blessed life. At last count I've been to over 100 countries, and lived in 11, but quite a few more to go!


Enjoy. Be kind. Look for the human connection with everyone.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Discovered couch surfing 6 years ago and I think it's the greatest thing on the planet. I host when I can and I surf whenever I travel--which is a lot! Looking forward to more...


Mostly excellent experiences, though there is the occasional hiccup, which is only human. I love it!


Many varied interests--major one of course is traveling. Also avid tennis player.

Music, Movies, and Books

Love all kinds of music. Don't see too many movies and not a lot of time to read books!
