About Me


to see & do as much as possible & enjoy every day & to instill the travel bug in the Rug-Rats


This is the most difficult to describe. We are pretty easy going, straight-forward, basically what you see is what you get.


To find something "GOOD" in every day especially in the darkest of days.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


It is a blast meeting new people. We have enjoyed all that have passed through our door


Travelling, Pottery, Scroll-sawing, Culture, Wildlife, Cooking, Family-life, Learning new things. Frank is the engineering & design master. He has deservedly earned the nickname of Mr Fix-it, be it fixing something for the Rugrats, or one of our couchsurfers as long as it's not electronic.

Music, Movies, and Books

We definitely prefer the older genre of music with good lyrics and toe-tapping beat. Books - anything with a good story line whether it be mystery, espionage, adventure, human interest. Movies - pretty much the same as books but must admit to a total enjoyment of a good comedy. Laughter makes the world seem right

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Listen to Emm singing Dean Martin's "Sway" on Allan's yacht (amazing experience). Backpacked (old-timer style) through SE Asia and Australia for 4 months at the ages of 57 & 67. Awesome!
