About Me

I am a teacher who has lived and worked in many countries across the world from SE Asia to USA. I really enjoy meeting new people - especially those who are travelling and have a story to tell. A good sense of humour as well as a liking and respect for others, together with a desire to repay past and future kindnesses is why I am joining Couchsurfing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have travelled many times in many countries across the world and benefitted from awesome hospitality and friendship wherever I have been. I would like to repay this by hosting like minded travellers. I really enjoy the cameraderie and friendships that come through meeting people who travel. I am lucky to live in a beautiful part of a beautiful country and really enjoy showing new friends around.


Travel (of course), sport and music mainly but I'm curious about most things that are new or interesting.
