About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I love to learn, to travel and meet new people and hear about their adventures. I want to see as much of the world as I can, and when I leave it I wish to do so with as few a regrets as possible

ABOUT ME

Someone once said, "There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." ...Being alive is a gift, living a happy life is a choice. ''In order to love me as a friend you must understand that I am an animal lover. My heart is broken regularly & filled with sadness for those animals that are not loved. That are not treated with kindness & respect. That do not know kind words & gentle hands. Every animal is worthy of a stable environment, food, water, affection & humane care.''(Naima Kacham)

PHILOSOPHY

Live, love, laugh, fall down and get up again and try not to hurt anyone in the process!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I love to travel, meeting new people and witnessing things of beauty and wonder. I am fortunate enough to live in a lovely area and I would like to share this place with others. Even if I cannot always host it is lovely just being able to meet and help people somehow. Whether it be helping them to find a place to put up a tent or experience real Turkish food at a reasonable price. Being able to help or to give is priceless and can bring one great joy.
