About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Meeting new people and exchanging ideas and culture!

ABOUT ME

Hey all! We are an American couple in the process of moving to Taiwan from Tokyo!

If you're in Tokyo and like ramen, please feel free to check out our ramen blog, for recommendations ( http://ramenloving.blogspot.com/ ) If you want a good bowl of ramen, we know a lot of places!

We also like to run so we've been trying to do short races whenever we can. Micah loves guitar and Brenna loves dancing. We used to do awa-odori, a traditional Japanese dance. Most recently Brenna has done some Bollywood-style dancing though.

NOTE: Sorry, but due to the high volume of requests we get, if it looks like you've sent a copy and pasted request, it's likely we'll decline your request!

PHILOSOPHY

Be excellent to each other.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We've been hosting couchsurfers since September 2010, and it's been a real delight meeting people from all over the world! We do our best to respond to every request and email we get, so if we can help y'all out, either with a couch, directions to a good but cheap dive, or if you just want to meet someone local for drinks and karaoke, let us know!

Currently we cannot host, but please contact us for hanging out! We're in a very central location, Shinjuku, so if you're in that part of Tokyo, we'd love to meet up!
