About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To meet interesting people and share a cup of tea together.

ABOUT ME

I'm English and live with my teenage son - my daughter is now as university in london. I love travelling and backpacked all over the world before settling in Spain near the Pyrenees. I love where I live but love meeting travellers! I consider myself young at heart and get on well with people of all ages.

PHILOSOPHY

I want to make the most of every minute and only work to live! I want my children to be open minded and accepting of people of every race, religion, colour, background...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I like meeting people from other countries. When travelling as a young woman I received lots of help, generosity and hospitatlity and want to do the same for other people now that I am settled.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Learnt to scuba dive on the Great Barrier Reef. Have ran the London Marathon twice. Have met some great people in my life and every wrinkle on my face tells a story :o)

Teach, Learn, Share

I know about the wine and vineyards of my region of anyone wants to go wine tasting or do a winery visit. I know the city of Huesca well and know some good walking routes in the Sierra de Guara. I have travelled and worked in various countries and know a little bit about a lot of things!

What I Can Share With Hosts

I can offer a friendly welcome and a comfortable home and help in getting to know the city and the surroundings. I always try and introduce Couchsurfers to other people, especially those that are staying around for a while. I'm very busy with work this year so I don't have time for excurisions but enjoy having dinner with CS at home or going out for a beer.. Please remember! I host much more than I surf and I am a single-mum so please be respectful in my home and with my children.
