To have an interesting story to tell the grandkids
I do biology, climb mountains and fly planes and write about it all.
The Scandinavians have a great word called "Hygge" which has no direct English translation but is a word for cosiness, comfort and a general inner warmth andhas an adjective form of "hyggelig." One Dane decribed it as "the feeling when you rent a cottage and pack it with your closest friends."
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
When I travel, I like to have time alone but also time with friends and I think couchsurfing will offer this.
My first couchsurfing experience was in Ottawa in May 2013 and it was the best introduction to the community I could have asked for! Canada was a great place to surf the seven sofas!
I am a bit of a jack-of-all-trades. I studied biology and now I am training to be a paramedic. However, I was brought up to do something in the arts be it painting, photography or writing and continue to this day. I love to learn the language of the places I visit and learn local recipes.
