About Me


Traveling & WWOOFing to follow my bliss


Love of the arts, music, culture and the earth. Riding my bike as an exercise in a quiet revolution.


Be the change you wish to see in the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sharing. Sharing knowledge, crash space, teaching. We're human because we share without any thought of reward. People have become so materialistic that they don't understand "Free" or "Kindness" anymore. One couch can change all that.


The kindness of strangers absolutely blows me away and restores humility. Hard to believe that that kind of spirit still exists in the world but it does, and I'm delighted to find it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

What is truly amazing is the amount of kindness that strangers possess. Just when you think the world is turning up on you, you run into people who will just give you what you need the most.

Teach, Learn, Share


Working on being a master of it. Don't buy what you can find for free. Don't buy new when you can find it used. Barter. Trade. Talk. There's always a way when you're broke.
