About Me


find out if water does go down the bathtub drain in a different direction in the southern hemisphere


Hello World! We're Alison and Ryan. We live in the frozen tundra of Minnesota in the United States. We have been married a couple of years and are finding marriage to be quite exciting. We enjoy adventure, even if it's in our own back yard. We both spend quite a bit of time working but hope our hard work pays off with the ability to travel, see new things, and experience all the world has to offer.


uh... hope for the best, prepare for the worst?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We participate in life by giving high fives liberally.


We are couch surfing novices. No experience yet. Check back soon for our new found couch surfing wisdom.

Music, Movies, and Books

Alison enjoys all music... seriously... though Ryan has a distaste for country western. This can be a point of contention.As for books, Ryan likes non-fiction and Alison is a sucker for a good murder mysteryWe don't really go to movies all that much as we are a bit frugal

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Before we met, Ryan was able to see the Pyramdis, Parthenon, Pantheon and Petra in an attempt to see all things "P" in one summer...
Alison is attempting to collect drivers licenses from all 50 states, she is currently 1/10th of the way there...
We cemented our love for travel and adventure together by getting engaged on the Great Wall of China...
We are now on a quest to add to our amazing experiences, and hope that you can be a part of it through couch surfing!

Teach, Learn, Share

We enjoy meeting people who are different from us.... people who have had different life experiences, lived different places, are accustomed to different cultures, have different occupations... so that we can learn from each other a little bit more about this great world we live in.
