About Me

I'm a free spirited, high vibrational, experienced traveller who loves to go where the locals go.

I've hosted and travelled as a WOOFER before and had the pleasure of meeting many on their travels. Some of the people I met along the way I still hold as good friends. There is something special about the giving and recieving nature of this and I'm hoping that Couch Surfing will prove the same.

It's fun to swap stories, and get insights from other peoples experiences and philosophies. I'm very mindful to be considerate and give back as I can and as is appropriate.

I'm presently starting an export business for the national liquor of Bolivia. It's very good and I make a mean cocktail if you'd like to try!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To have real experiences whether it just be getting the inside word on where to go and/or getting to meet interesting people (awesome!).

I'm likely to start travelling a bit more with my export business and Couch Surfing gives a great opportunity to have fun along the way and not get so lost!

Teach, Learn, Share

Passionate about alternative healing and permaculture, always happy to share if someone has need or is interested.

Would be cool to learn more about photography. The camera is definitely better than the operator. Recently started learning Bachata... wow. More of that please!
