About Me

I want to learn and discover all the time. I like looking at everyday things until they become strange but i also like looking for things and experiences that are totally new. And I love other people's stories!

I'm known for being super sociable, good humoured,(but if i dont agree with you, expect to be challenged!) easily entertained, and laughing too loudly(by British standards). Also for my enthusiasm for dancing as much as i can!

As i get older i am also more n more attracted to nature. I love quiet places with open views and lots of colours. In cities i get hungry for colour and that tells me when i need to leave!

PHILOSOPHY

Take everything seriously, except yourself.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Mutual aid! That is, we all live better and happier when we take care of each other! (And don't pay someone else to do it, eg. hotels!)

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

sharing information, sharing spaces, sharing resources.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Lived on Arxanon street in Athens. It taught me everything!
Walked parts of the South West coast path in England! An incredibly lovely path unknown to most of the world!

Teach, Learn, Share

English...If you want/need it..i worked as a teacher.And i've done lots of proofreading of job/uni applications and dissertations. can be useful!

Hula hooping! It gives you a "reason" (if you need one) to dance in the street! It's also good for core and coordination!

A little bit of yoga basics!

What I Can Share With Hosts

Fun! I like laughing and joking, dancing , stories, silliness and adventures!
I also like cleaning (quite often hosts have come back to a sparkly new kitchen!).
And i will happily cook, (but i will tell you what friends say about my food first)!
