About Me


To remain true to who I am and why I am here....which is still being discovered!


I love to laugh and hear others laugh....want to enjoy this new sense of adventure that I am embarking upon!

I want to know what it's like for others to live in their own neighbourhood....their own town!

Rick and I live together, and are travelling together. We are always intrigued by others' stories....

In 2009 we travelled to the U.K. and to Paris and Amsterdam, and have just returned from a 3 month sailing adventure in the Bahamas, where we intend to return in the winter.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

When we were in Europe, we met some amazing 'locals' through couchsurfing, and would like to continue doing so as our travels take us to more destinations.


Interested in cultures, languages, peoples' everyday activities....the things that may be considered insignificant to others.

Music, Movies, and Books

Heather's favourite movie is Braveheart...Rick's is probably The Master & The Commander.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Coordinated the arrival of three refugee families from Bosnia, during their traumatic upheaval in 1995. It is one of the events in my life that has left me with lasting memories and lifelong friendships that I cherish.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to learn from people who are willing to tell me their true stories....what life has been like for them.

Countries I’ve Visited

Bahamas, Dominican Republic, England, France, Netherlands Antilles, Scotland, United States
