About Me


Connect... and if allowed, watch it blossom


You have a say!


Expressing Honesty is important.

And be kind (no chance to rewind!)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couch lender and on occasion; couch warmer. Trying not to be just a free rider :)



Thanks to great hosts, We've dwelved into the comical, the whimsical, the philosphical, the humane and the natural. Ever greatful to them. Just as equally, I´ve had some wonderful guests.


Food and what goes into it, I'm starting a love affair with food and the kitchen. Discovering, Learning, Analysing. Rock Climbing addict. Enquiring. I like finding out people's pursuits and passions.

I´d like to learn a thing or two from pigs; they are very cute and intriguing.. but also they are so Freakin happy just Being in mud!

Music, Movies, and Books

Amongst others, I like listening to most things with Fingerstyle and folk guitar (like Nick Drake, Jose Gonzales). I like tabla. Books and Movies that I find provocative, or which make me laugh (uncontrollably).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There's plenty, but its subjective and/or personal.

I can say that I've met some amazing folks.

Teach, Learn, Share

Learn more recipes and perhaps teach some. More baking, more cooking, and sharing both of these. And why not add a little laughter into the mix... yes, we'll share that too!

and while we are on sharing: please do mention the word 'teaspoon' in your couch request so that I know you've read my profile and yadi yadi yada. You know the drill!
