About Me


Teach our children how to save our world from global warming


Erika and Albano are married since 2003. Our daughter was born in 2008 and our son in 2010. We have lived in Switzerland and in Mexico. Right now, you can find us in Bern, Switzerland.


Our familiy philosophy is traditional, wise, outstanding and complete. That's why we are still working on it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


If you want to know other cultures, you can travel. Or you can open your mind and open your house and let these cultures in.


From 1998 to 2000, Albano was cycling in North America, South America and Asia:
You can imagine that many people offered their couches, their hamocs or maybe just a corner of their soil to pitch up the tent.
For more recent experiences, please check out our references.


Albano likes outdoor activities. It's even more fun with rain. Well, sunshine is also fine. Erika likes original Mexican food, and she is quite talented in preparing it from non-original ingredients. Albano likes virtually every type of food. We both enjoy languages and all the funny stuff you can do with them. Apart from that, we have rather broad interests. So it would be somewhat shorter to tell you, what we are NOT interested in. But this is not the right place for negative attitudes.

Music, Movies, and Books

Hit lists can change, but we might find this stuff outstanding for decades to come:
- The short movie "Quiero ser" by the German director Florian Gallenberger
- Funk and Mariachi music
- The authors Paulo Coelho and Isaac Asimov

Teach, Learn, Share

Amazingly, we know quite a few things about Switzerland and Mexico, and we would be more than happy to share them with you.
What is your mother tongue? Maybe you could give us some private lessons ...
