About Me

Been travelling for EVER. My father was in the British Army and I had a wonderfully itinerant childhood, then joined the British Army. After 2 years in Hong Kong, I left the Army and moved to Australia.

I now live in a regional town, which is just big enough to have all the services I need, though small enough for a peaceful life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My main reason for travelling is to meet local folk, and find out what a place is like.

I love to cook for my host, and perhaps teach them some English, if they want to. I also speak enough French, Greek and Italian to teach a little, to.
