About Me


To live 10,000 years (so far so good!!!)


Well as you can see from my mission in life im 0.52% on my way to acheiving my goal. Have been a very happy human for a long time and simply loving being in nz these past 15 years. Now my children are independent I wish to travel more and also expand my business. Love meeting new people and sharing exciting cultures. nuff said?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By shamelessly prmoting this sytem in my social media course as well as participating from time to time. I started a wanaka group and will do my best to spread the word


Aaaaaggghhhh just about to go surfing for the first time in Stdney, but prior to that managed hostels/hotels/backpackers for 12 years or so and I calculate Ive hosted in one way or another nearly
250000 travellers through a more formal the experience.
