About Me

ABOUT ME

Check out this link. A great reason to come to Vancouver!

My priority in hosting is first to TRAVELLERS, not to those moving to Vancouver or are here to study, attend a festival or conference. I also prefer not to host guests for one night as that's hardly enough time to get to know you.

As I host alot of people (also through Servas, Hospitality Club and sometimes Air B+B) the best guests for me are those that are not just looking for a "free place to stay", but those that actually want to connect with the people, places and culture of the city.

Check out the groups I am a member of, they tell a little more about me. (I hope you have joined some groups as well!)

If you don't have a picture in your profile, or if you are too busy to meet up for a drink while you are here - best to email someone else. Also couples - I welcome you, but I don't just want to be a third wheel. Include your favorite colour in your request, and I will know you have actually read my profile.

P.S. If you do not have a picture, or information about yourself in your profile, please don't be surprised if I don't respond to your request.

PHILOSOPHY

To thine own self be true! - Shakespeare

Do unto others as they would have them do to you.

Don't tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you have traveled.€ Mohammed

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

10 Years - of being a host and a surfer!!!

I participate mostly as a host but have also had a great many experiences staying with awesome hosts. I also am a huge fan, and active promoter of couchsurfing as I just think it's amazing to meet, stay and host people internationally. TRULY I believe the world would be a better place if we stayed in each others homes.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I think I can call myself a "vetran" couchsurfer now both as a host and a traveler. I stopped counting how many times I have hosted or been hosted. Every time I do it feels like a first time for me.

Interests

Performing Arts (Theatre, Musical Theatre, Opera, Music). Walking. Journal and creative writing. Window shopping. Sitting in coffee houses readinga nd writing. I also work and am interested in the non-profit sector.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I couchsurfed once in a tiny one room flat with someone. My host seemed to have very little to offer in the way of space, or time to spend with me - BUT they were so very accomodating, willing to fit in time for a botte of wine, and said "my home is your home". I was so deeply touched by my hosts graciousness that I decided to adopt the same approach with my own guests.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love sharing the city with people. It gives me great joy to be tour guide when I can.
