About Me


showing people my light (and my city)


I am a city girl who loves the nightlife, shopping, dining and dancing. I also love the great outdoors and have no problem camping in the wilderness or hiking in the jungle without a toilet or shower for days on end. I see travel as a valuable form of education and it has been my focus for the past 15 years now.
I do not host surfers without references for safety reasons.


Travel now while you can, don't wait till retirement! Retire every year for a month or three.

Be kind to all.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Being in the middle of the ocean on a boat from Malaysia to Thailand and for as far as the eye can see... only a clear blue sky and water. It was HUGE and quite moved me.

Camping in Canada in Feb. without a tent (slept in the snow) for a weekend

Jungle trekking in Malaysia, Borneo, Thailand, Costa Rica.

2 day sailing on the pacific ocean

Sailed a tall ship from Toronto to New York
