About Me

I like adventures and learning new things! My labrador retriever has been the focus of my life for the past 9 years....and my two cats are good company too. I try to live simply but passionately.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am couchsurfing because I love to travel and experience new things. I also feel that if you are travelling or have experienced from anything that you should give back in some way. Life is all about helping each other out and community.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favourite childhoood books were A Wrinkle in Time, The Secret Garden and the Island of the Blue Dolphin. They were so good, I didn't want them to end....and cried when they did. The funniest book I've ever read was WinterDance....and it was about dogs and mushing... :) Oh ya...and Fountainhead by Ayn Rand was good too!

I like folk music, classic rock, jazz standards, some country and western, and classical music. I love Nina Simone!

Recently, my favourite film has been The Imitation Game. Benedict Cumberbatch was so good in that....and so many social issues addressed in that movie....suspenseful too! As a university student, my favourite movie was The Unbearable Lightness of Being.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I acquired a taste for vegemite! One of the hardest things I've ever done!!!

I'm a farm girl so I've not afraid to get my hands dirty by digging in the garden or picking up poop!
