About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to enjoy myself and others

ABOUT ME

My Random Personal Description!
I grew up on a farm in the countryside, with 4 brothers and 3 sisters, the best was saved for last, me :)
I am a complicated person, hard to classify, I have many sides I think, a friend described me as mushy! I have to agree,
I can be rude, sweet, angry, sad, happy, obsessive,
the usual! I am a bit of a smart ass at times. Sometimes too much of the ass and less of the smart.
Charming not that much, but i do have my moments!
I love the outdoors and my planet, don't love those who abuse it, I have seen to many amazing things to want to loose any of them.
I am still studying in the school of life as I want to be a professional bum! And my studies are at an advanced stage of bumdom,
I have been traveling for 3 out of the last 4 years so I guess i like that a lot
and have worked at Quetzaltrekkers (Quetzaltrekkers.com) a Non-Profit Organizations in Guatemala for a year.
started collage at 30 which turned out to be a big year.
I hate typing, so the rest we can do by talking! :)

PHILOSOPHY

Feelings? Depends where you feel me, I am very ticklish!

My thoughts? Do not go there! Anyone know how to switch them off!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I spread the CS word to everyone I can.
Where I live is not really a big attraction to travelers. When I am home please come say hi.
I started the Athlone group, it's not very active, we only had a few meetings but it is a start.
I would like to build my own eco house and open its doors to CS.
