About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To get away and meet as many people as possible...

ABOUT ME

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

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNgk1pEHi_Q

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!)

Please be interesting! Tell me something interesting about yourself, or what you plan to see in Vancouver, or something that might of been interesting in my profile. I have been doing this for awhile now and really like to meet people who have made an effort in sending a couch request.

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.

Please 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

11 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

Walking. Journal and creative writing. Window shopping. Sitting in coffee houses reading and writing. Drinking craft beers and red wine. Performing Arts (Theatre, Musical Theatre, Opera, Music).

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.
