Creating the opportunity to link up with women across Central Asia
Now free of financial dependents and retired from a career in teaching, I have based myself in Istanbul since last October and from where to spring into Central Asia. I also love returning back to the UK for quick visits to see my children and grandchildren.
Attempting to lead a good life without fear and superstition. Having the courage to take risks. Being able to cope with whatever comes up in life, and dealing with setbacks with humour. Being generous in spirit and caring about others.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I don't have the opportunity to be a host within the CS community at the moment, as I don't live in my own place in Istanbul. When I've ended my life as a traveller then I will definitely make my flat available for fellow travellers in London.
Meeting people is my chief interest at the moment, along with the arts, culture, buildings, ancients sites, reading history and politics, feminism, human rights and social justice, what other women of my age are doing!
- human rights
- womens rights
Music, Movies, and Books
Passionate about the cinema, especially about world cinema. Same with music, world music, jazz, classical.
Music festivals etc. No reading many novels these days.
Toomuch to learn about Turkey and Russia
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I drove to India in 1967, and I'm attempting to do the journey again - slightly different route.
Teach, Learn, Share
I want to learn as much as possible the way people live, particularly about women's lives. Women the world over have so much in common. I enjoy teaching english conversation, and sharing some parenting skills.
