About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To enjoy the journey and to share the joy

ABOUT ME

Laughter and a kind word brighten the day. I aim to be a source of both.

PHILOSOPHY

Build bridges. Complain less, say "thank you" more. We're all in this together.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My wife and I were Servas hosts - and occasional Servas travelers - for close to 15 years. We enjoyed meeting people from diverse backgrounds, especially those who allowed themselves to feel at home chez nous. Couchsurfing has all the advantages of Servas but without the bureaucracy.
