About Me


Kindness, Compassion, Awareness


All about me? Well I'm happiest when cooking a meal for a big group of people, drinking wine with friends around camp fires, practicing yoga barefoot in the park, looking at beautiful art, listening to and dancing to music...lots of things make me happy.
Kindness, Compassion, Wakefullness!
I can't abide xenophobia, hurtfullness or cold weather!


I try to live as peaceful a life as I can. The only thing I how little I know of people; places; philosophies and how very much I want to know and understand them more.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I went to a few Couch Surfing events in England, hosted when I lived in Hiroshima, Japan. I'd like to try surfing now!


Ive stayed on allot of sofas in my time, I find that the big squishy sofas are the best :)


Listening to and dancing to music, reading anything I can, cooking and eating, drawing pictures, writing poems, taking photos, Poi, Climbing trees and getting to know you.
