About Me

Very energetic ... love travelling, great conversation, learning new cultures. Retired a few years ago just to increase my travel experiences. Hope the trend continues.

Don't let my age distract you.....most think I am in my 30's

If in Chicago great tour guide. Have a huge Italian family so most likely you will meet some of them hanging out with me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Learned about the site from a guy on a plane from Austria to Barcelona, Been a member ever since.

Meet great people from around the world. Experience more of the people and cultural than in the tourist sites.


Love to travel. Meet new people. Learn about all cultures.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Met Pope John Paul II in person in the Vatican,,, was hand picked by a nun to meet him and pray with him. Been travelling a month at a time throughout Europe.

Was in a motorcycle accident on a remote island in Vietnam with no hospital. Ending up breaking my jaw. All good....never forget the overall experience
