About Me


I am friendly, honest, and straightforward. I love getting to know people, and finding out just what makes them tick - and what ticks them off!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Helping new friends enjoy their travelling even more! A safe place to sleep, a full belly and clean clothes, and away you go!


Travelling, gardening, planning the next trip, travelling, reading, travelling, my husband and three kids, travelling, motorbiking, travelling, meeting fantastic new people, travelling.

TV series: Downton Abbey.
Game Of Thrones.
Travels with my Father.
I don't like heavy metal, blues, jazz. Its got no tune. (How wonderful that there are different tastes!).
Karl Jenkins. Hans Zimmer. Enya. Mozart. Cliff Richard (really!). Chris Chameleon. Elvis Blue. Windborne.
