About Me


My partner and I have been together for a long time - we would like to make new friends


I try to be a good person - the more we give, the richer we are.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Long ago, I used to write letters to penpals. I'm happy to say that we still have 4 friends in France and 5 in England that we have been seeing for many years.


I'm getting more interested in history (my worst subject at school). The who and the why are what is interesting.

Also like impressionist art and classical music. Big bands, Motown and Disco!

Fascinated by 1960s American V8 land yachts. All that baroque styling and chrome!
