About Me


In April 2022 I moved to Brummen, Netherlands, which is the 3rd country I have lived in these past 2 years. Luxembourg and Belgium are the other 2.

I'm travelling in Europe and love to meet locals and visitors, please say hello.
I've been living back in Europe since August 2017, after 16 years in the US. I am learning French and hiking a lot.
I practice yoga and meditation daily. I am a vegetarian and love cooking and sharing food with others.

Mostly we need to responsible for all our so-called imperfections
Live life fully, be open, be compassionate and forgiving, allow yourself to be surprised, sharing joy with those around.
It's becoming clear there's a lot of crazy things people do to themselves and others, participating in the CS community is one way to make the world a more sharing caring place.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am occasionally meeting couchsurfers for social gatherings and rarely hosting.

Couchsurfing is my favorite community because it's based on the principle of sharing resources, something that I believe is essential and yet too often lacking. I am grateful for all those I have been able to host, be hosted or to meet up, CS makes the world a better place!


Hiking and camping are now at the top of my list of how I like to spend time.
Food, people, fun, music, dance, yoga, health, travel, languages, accents, making a difference, growth and development.
