About Me


traveling around the world together as a family


We are a family of three traveling around the world for a year: two moms and a two year old boy. We enjoy meeting people and learning from others. We are taking a respite in Italy right now before heading out for another six months of travel. We are fun loving people with good senses of humor and try not to take ourselves too seriously.


We believe in compassion, respect and generosity. We believe we are asked to serve others and seek the good in all things and make the world a better place. We think traveling can crack open old prejudices and ignorance and allow the light in. Laughter is really important, too. Life is short.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


we are new to couchsurfers and look forward to learning more and hosting once back home.
