About Me

Current mission
open my home to interesting travellers except CS from France without any hosting experience who I invite to read up on how to be a good guest and not just how to find the perfect host


I was actually born in 1941. Offhand no surfer contacs me due to my age.
No nonsense person, interested in people of all ages and all walks of life. Generous with my time or otherwise up to the point when guests think they can take everything for granted.
Always eager to learn about the new electronic world and the many interesting websites
I do NOT like to cook


live and let live

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host constantly when I am in town and surfed once in Vienna

My choice was to offer a highly appreciated private room in one of the most coveted neighbourhoods to a GREAT NUMBER of surfers instead of hosting once a month . However that means that I cannot also invest my time and money in feeding the many guests.
Most surfers express their appreciation in one way or another but then there are those who make you feel as if you should be grateful for their having honoured you with their presence

Being a senior citizen I do enjoy learning about the ways the young people of the world function, i.e. think/ act/communicate etc. etc.
Old age wisdom can help a few of the young ones
