About Me


Our mission is to meet as many interesting people from all over the world as is possible in one lifetime


Hi! We are Barbora and David, a French-American-Czech couple (Barbora is from Prague, and David is from New York City)who are currently living in the beautiful city of Lyon, France. We're both college professors, and we love France, and showing our part of France to curious travellers. We love the fantastic cuisine in Lyon, the elegant beauty, and the rich history of this city. Welcome!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We have had the pleasure of both hosting...and being hosted, many times now. We have had guests from many parts of the world. More and more we discover just how great couchsurfing is. Everybody we have met has been most friendly and welcoming. Couchsurfing lets you meet and get to know "real" people in the destinations where you travel.


Above all, we love to travel. We enjoy exploring the world and meeting all kinds of people. Were interested in cooking, and eating (especially French cuisine), although we'll try anything. We are interested in art history, cultures all around the world, history, and beautiful music.

Music, Movies, and Books

We have a wide and varied taste in music. We are curious and love to listen to anything, classical, jazz, rock. We also read anything we can get our hands on. Without amazon, we would perish...

Growing up in New York City and Prague

Teach, Learn, Share

We are pretty good linguists: we can teach French...or Czech! We love learning languages too, as well as cooking.
