About Me


Mingling with local couch surfers


I am settled into the fairest Cape and very happy to be living is such a lovely place. I like the coast, hiking in the various nature reserves, live music, wine tastings and spending time with family and good friends.


I find that for every action, there is a REaction. So, smile and the world is likely to smile back at you.. Frown at the world and that's likely the reaction you'll reciprocate.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would like to meet local couch surfers and show travellers around some nice sites in Cape Town.


Whilst I was living in England I was meeting up with the local CS community and showing travellers to Poole around the sites in Dorset. I also met up with some CS'ers in the Netherlands whilst I was travelling there.


Meeting new people, hiking, sightseeing and exploring, walking on the beach, kayaking, live music, spending time with family and good friends, and studying the Word of God.

Music, Movies, and Books

I terms of movies, I prefer comedies or romantic comedies, but also like a bit of drama, action and sci-fi now and again.

I love music and going to music festivals like Oppikoppi and Up the Creek. I like alternative, rock, blues, easy listening, vocal and some world music, etc.
