About Me


Be good to others.


First, please no post card requests.

Next, please note that I am leaving Eritrea June 2015 and will not accept guest after May 25th.

I am a creature of habit, I enjoy frequent visits to coffee shops and movies. Am more comfortable with chit chats one on one than in large groups. I did have a tendency hanging out with a mature crowd, but these days I seem to enjoy and receive quite a bit from all ages.

I am a middle aged school teacher, I teach grade three at the international school here. Late nights? Not likely! I have a classroom full of kiddies in the morning!

I grew up with nine siblings so I am open to many different kinds of people.


"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Through CS I have witnessed a spirit of traveling that I relish so much. I have enjoyed welcoming guests into my home and meeting with others over a meal or cuppa.


Books, music, curling, hockey, friends and family or is that family and friends?

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have taken up roots and moved halfway around the world. The lifestyle of being an expat was one that I relished for many years and now I am doing it.

Teach, Learn, Share

Having recently returned to Canada after numerous years living overseas, I feel that my expat experience has allowed me to become more understanding.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I will make a serious attempt at cooking a meal. Am trying to become a better cook, so I beg for your patience! I enjoy a good conservation and always aware when giving people their own space.

Countries I’ve Visited

Egypt, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland, Japan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Qatar, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States, Viet Nam

Countries I’ve Lived In

Australia, Canada, Eritrea, Kuwait, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea
