To bring the world together
We both grew up on farms on the Canadian prairies, and after deciding that there was a world out there that we wanted to experience, left for larger vistas. We have lived,worked or traveled in over 50 countries.
Our home base is Winnipeg, and from there we work to make the world a better place.
We believe that fundamentally everyone was born good, and our task is to recover that goodness both in ourselves and in others.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
In the seventies I hitchhiked and picked up hitchhikers, often staying at people's homes or inviting them to mine.
Since I joined couchsurfing, we have hosted a half dozen people - wonderful experiences, some leading to lasting friendships. I have surfed myself a few times and have been so warmed by people's hospitality.
All experiences have been positive.
We enjoy our work in mediation(my wife), and poverty reduction (myself)
- bungee jumping
Music, Movies, and Books
I love books, though don't read as much as I used to. I love adventure/fantasy novels and am currently reading the last book of Donaldson's 'Chronicles of Thomas Covenant'.
My wife likes to read the Economist.
