About Me


Love travel adventures and inspire others sharing my wisdom and wonderful experiences when I can, while I can


Passionate. Enjoying the journey and life's adventure so much, this include it's twists and turns.

Spontaneous,free-spirited, love travels, outdoors, love meeting people.

Authored a best selling book (ego filler?) The Tale of Juliet- You Have The Power To Change Your Life - a true story of my life.

A wife, a mother and a world citizen.


Live life purposely and meaningfully.

Life is an adventure, pay it forward

Big dreams do come true.

To thy own self be true. What goes around, comes around.

If you think you can. You can. If you think you can't, you are absolutely right.

Stay true to what makes you happy and what makes you come alive.

When you stop learning, you start dying.

Breath peace, love and joy.

When you feel good, you feel God. God is in each and every one of us.

Contribute. Leave this world a better place.

Leave a legacy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love to host like-minded people in my home and hope you will love to host me too - for I really love to travel the world.

I usually introduce myself as jet- as in "jetplane". Traveling is something I never thought I could ever do during my younger years because my family did not have any means...now the sky is the limit. I'm open to exponential possibilities.

CS will even take it to the next level. Yipeeee!!!


My first time couch surfing experience was an adventure of a lifetime in Switzerland. CS hosts had shown me so much love beyond my wildest dreams. Heart warming welcome at it's best including fully trusting me with the key to their flats, super super fantastic.What an amazing concept to connect with like minded, brilliant, open, warm and kind-hearted people.

I introduced my husband in CS and he loved it. We made life time friends.

We reciprocate and pay it forward when we are available. We open our homes to travelers from all over the world, when we are available.
