Wants to Meet Up
- Last login over 2 years ago
Join Couchsurfing to see Tracy’s full profile.
Seek novelty, like adversity (what doesn't kill me...), get sidetracked by the irrelevant and quirky. Like unpredictability of situations - but like reliable people.
I am married and have a 22 year old daughter. Testing out my first small dog, a cavalier puppy who is consistently happy.
I am suspicious of people who don't like beer.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Mostly for meeting up for short bursts of activities - usually in for day hikes/snowshoeing/food/coffee/art dates.
Recently was glad to host couchsurfers from Nova Scotia for 1 week.
I have couchsurfed in Turkey and Malta. I prefer to rent a hotel and use CS for meet ups.
Community, people, mental health & addictions, carpets/textiles, hiking, historic trails, both rustic and haute cuisine, antiques, language, history, visual arts, mandalas, thrift stores, dogs, costumes, cabin living, volunteerism. Alternative views, reasoned views that counter my own.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Canoed the Bowron Chain (116 km); hitched a ride on a private jet to Greenland; played with a baby jaguar in the Orinoco head waters; watched grizzly bears fishing; stung by a stingray; took sailing lessons; ground my own paint from semi-precious stones in a Tibetan sacred art class. I have adopted a special needs kid.
Helped organize a free portrait studio for mental health.
Help organize Rotary's Big Blue Ball.
Teach, Learn, Share
I am patient at teaching English. I love to cook and learn cooking techniques. Visual arts - acrylic, mixed media, charcoal.
Get very excited about linguistics though cannot retain it for the life of me.
Not a fan of religion.
