About Me


We are unschoolers currently ON our Big Getaway and we're the brains we have for breakfast


I am one who feels boxed in by paragraph boxes asking me who I am. We are a family of three, though one works far over the H2O span for a good part of the year. The other two unschool - one is 11 and learning about space, the other 31 and learning about how to make the world a better place. (Other stuff too, but rhyme is king.)


By the time I figure that out the house probably wouldn't be up for couchsurfing anymore

(UPDATE: yup, crystal ball and all that, on the wide open road we now are) the mean time, I like Golden Rules, love, freedom, being good and kind and true, making a difference, and all the usual hippie-creeds :) (I'm a recovering hippie, though :p)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing



We have been giving beds and enjoying the fab company of even fabber travellers, but will no longer be actively hosting, as we've picked up and can currently be found somewhere around the globe...where we might, from time to time, sleep in new beds provided by fellow couchsurfers :-)


It's been amazing: We've met wow people and have had wow times with them.


Life! People! Experiences! Stories! You!

Music, Movies, and Books

The internet is not big enough. Anything that rocks the mind or sparks a shooting star inside me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I mother. That trumps all the rest, for fear of sounding like a Dr. Sear's book. But in my son is enfolded the entire universe, and that's pretty darn awesome.

Teach, Learn, Share

Come now, let's not spoil the fun...we should have something left to explore when we meet!
