About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Our current mission is to have fun, meet new exciting people, and explore of much of the world as possible! We are currently travelling South America for one year starting in Brazil in August 2015 and hope to do some volunteering work along the way. http://www.workaway.info/workawayerprofile.html?w=Anthony_and_Dawn

ABOUT ME

My name is Anthony and my now wife is Dawn. We are both from Liverpool, England. We took a year out travelling in 2011-2012 and had the best year of our lives. We met a lot of amazing people along the way, and seen some unbelievable places. We are currently on our second year long trip!

PHILOSOPHY

Regret the things you do in life, not the things you don't do!

We are both nice and very genuine people and we enjoy meeting people with the same values. We love our families and close friends and enjoy living live to the max. Travelling is opening our eyes to new things, people, experiences, everyday and we are loving every second of it.

One day we will settle down and start our own family, however right now we are enjoying being young with no real commitments and finding out about the big wide world!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We are both fairly new to the CouchSurfing scene, however we plan to use the CouchSurfing for temporary stopovers whilst travelling in the future, in order to meet new people and experience the area's from a locals point of view!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far we've only surfed on a couple of couches...the first being Yuji's place in Melbourne. It has been a fantastic experience and a real eye-opener!! I think our first couchsurfing host is one of the best, and we've been really lucky that Yuji is actively involved in the Melbourne couchsurfing scene. So we have been out to a few of the Melbourne CS gatherings and met a lot of other cool CS people who we have kept in touch with, mainly Paulistravelling who is a really cool guy and took us out to see kangaroo's and then cooked a massive lunch for us at his home! The CS people we have met so far have been amazing and we are truly hooked on the whole couchsurfing scene!!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One amazing thing we have seen was in Sihanoukville, Cambodia...we met a guy who worked in a restaurant called Sunset who was an incredibly kind and inspiring human being. He told us about a number of families not too far away that lived in a rubbish dump, and would eat food found in the dump & lived in shacks on there. We agreed to provide some supplies for these people & the next day Sunshine picked us up in a taxi & we bought food / medicine / clothing supplies from the local market and took them up to the people. It was unbelievable to see how these poor people lived, and even more amazing at how happy they were and grateful for the basic supplies we took them. This is one moment in our lives that has truly touched us and will stay with us forever.

A couple of months after this we received an email and a charity (Veronica Faul Foundation) had agreed to take the people on and work to get them out of the dump and into proper housing and jobs which is great news! More info here: http://www.veronicafaulfoundation.org/project-sunset/
