About Me


adventure, discovery, make memories

I'm not necessarily a traveler but I travel very long distances to experience living in new places as a local. I love to meet the people who live in those places and those who come to visit. Hotels, temples and palaces are pretty much the same everywhere but people are not. I enjoy getting involved in the routines of different cultures in the countries I stay in and volunteer whenever I can. I am interested in people,their stories and different perspectives about life. Each new friend opens the door to a new world. I enjoy bringing out the best in people.

Food is important and I love sharing it with friends..
I have oceans of interest in life and everything that goes on in it.


The World is 70% much have you travelled if you haven't sailed or cruised ?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sometimes I am able to actively participate. I try to host in the different countries where I stay for long periods. I may be in your city and contact you for a visit, or we can meet for lunch or coffee.


I have met some wonderful people and shared food, conversations and great times. I would like to do more..


I'm interested in life and living, resourceful alternatives to modern living, wildlife, fresh/raw foods, good coffee, nutrition, boats, ships, cats, goats, vanishing indigenous tribes.
I love to browse second hand shops, street markets, wet markets, and pazars, bazaars, mercados and pasarayas.
I am a passionately curious person, I am born to explore and I love to laugh!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

During our circumnavigation I did an ocean voyage in my own boat thru the Indian Ocean in the 'off season'. From the Mediterranean coast of Turkiye, through the Suez down the Red Sea to Richards Bay, South Africa. I understand well about survival and the voyage from hell.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to learn from experience and from others... I can give information when i have it ... just ask me.
