About Me


sharing the adventures of my youngsters as they progress on their paths, finding the time (and resources) for my own adventures


In my working life I have always had to be outgoing and often kind of courageous.
I did a lot of different things after I left home at 17 - nurses training, traveling in Europe (then still divided by the "iron curtain". I had three children and worked with their father. I worked as contact and organizer in commercial photography, then returned to nursing and did some more training.
Now the youngsters are all "on the move", alternately living at home or elsewhere, and I am once more traveling on my own.
As forward as I may be professionally, as shy I can be in private. I have yet to overcome my reluctance to write outright "Couch requests"
A weakness of mine is to be a bit of a smart ass. I can only hope for patience in others - I try to be good, but sometimes I cannot help it.


non fui, fui, non sum, non curo
Favorite Philosopher: Josiah Royce

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Traveling I met CS members to share walks, talks and sights
I stayed at wonderful and welcoming homes and the chance to meet these people has enriched my life.
I have hosted guests who were equally charming and delightful, and whom I shall always remember with affection.

Teach, Learn, Share

all about my job,
and little bits of knowledge of all kinds of topics which I have collected over the years.
