About Me


making observations : )


Love all sorts of things... I'm usually involved in local community theatre, although not so much these days.
I LOVE animals, have two that are surfing with me, and my roommate has a great friendly clean british lab.I’m particular about the pets I will allow as visitors. If you do have a medium sized, clean, 100% housebroken, canine good citizen, I would be thrilled to consider having you and him/her stay with us : ) So, please discuss your pet with me.
I like people, I enjoy company, and I am happy to feel needed or useful, but I am quite attached to myself and hope that no one is offended if I prefer my own quiet time over a good time somewhere else with great people.
my preferred mode of transportation is currently by bicycle. So, if you have one and you decide to visit, please bring it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have only just recently joined, but have now already experienced hosting surfers that have set the bar high! I've also had the opportunity to meet other local hosts : )
a great crowd of good, fun loving people. Thank you!


I've had some guests, surfed once, taken a short ride with a few of you now. It's alright, I'm pretty sure I like it here. : )


volunteering, crafting, gardening, knitting, cooking, people who clean, motorcycling, theatre, Pet Shop Boys!!! Erasure!!! Cazwell!

I just got my first skateboard! I'll be working on busting my ass! ; D

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm learning more about myself with every day and couchsurfer. Sometimes a confirmation, a revision or a revelation. Maybe not what I think I'm looking for, or wanting to hear, but a valuable lesson no less.

I'll share it all, well, most of it anyway ; )If you learn something while you're here, I congratulate you on your findings, though I just want you to be comfortable and have a good time : )
