40% of my life on Couchsurfing and can't help but love it more with each experience. It never gets old.
My man, Joey, and I live a 20 minute walk from downtown. We've got plenty of extra beds to share, the more the merrier! We've also got a 4 month old puppy. He's all puppy in every way, so if puppies aren't your jam, I'd be wary of staying in this house. We've got a lot of tea, eggs, and toast to share, and a piano.
We'd love to hear from you if you're passing by!
Side note -- this isn't AirBnB, we chose this over AirBnb as those are entirely different cultures. In your request, just be straight-up about what you're looking for and I'll let you know what I've got to offer (sometimes a lot, sometimes as little as a cozy bed). Hosts can tell when you copy and paste. Writing a personal note may take longer, but is a more guaranteed way to let your host know you're genuinely interested in staying with them, specifically. I'm much more likely to accept a personal request.
After years of Couchsurfing showing me some glorious corners of the world, I'm grateful to have a space to share. I've been known to wander, but for a bit, I'll let other folks do that. I'm a forest school teacher and enjoy spending my days outside, no matter the weather.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Connecting. Stories. Surfing. Have Hosted (but right now, just not possible).
Probably one of my favourite Couchsurfing moments was way out in the middle-of-nowhere-Russia when my hosts took me to the next village to visit their friends and banya (bath). I have to admit I was pretty surprised to find myself naked and being beaten with birch branches by my host ("Russian massage"). I felt so clean and good afterwards! They dressed me in traditional Russian clothing and then I learned how to make little cloth dolls.
2013 Margaret said... Photography (always have my camera), curling, public transportation, partner dancing, cello (and nose flute, uke, piano, etc), badminton, languages (German, Swiss German, French, and mega-limited Spanish, Italian, Scot Gaelic), walking for days, organizing, cycling, traveling, meeting folks, melting things, sense of smell, exploring textures, trying to get lost and discovering.
Music, Movies, and Books
I like all those!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I get thrilled in those click moments where two folks just "get" each other. It doesn't always happen but when it does, it's oh so sweet.
Kayaking in the fjords of Norway. Riding on the back of a Vespa in the Swiss alps. Snuggling babies in Ukraine. Being beaten in the Russian banya (sauna) with birch branches. Biking around rural Romania and street-side traditional dance parties. Riding a tractor around the sunflower fields of Serbia. Dog sledding and ice fishing in Alaska.
Life's pretty incredible, eh?
Teach, Learn, Share
Cello and expert skittering. Dancing (blues, clogging, square, ballroom...)
I'm interested in learning Russian, Ukrainian, Scot Gaelic, and Dutch at this moment as well as improving my Spanish.
