About Me

We area a married couple (have been married for 11 years now) and recently our life changed. We have a baby boy (born early March 2015). But we still love traveling and enjoy the company of international travelers.
Currently, Chris is a PhD student at UW and Szilvia is at home with the baby.
We have a dog and a cat.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

CS is great for getting to know new people and hearing their stories. You learn so much!

We hosted a quite few people from CS and we also had a lot more just "random" people crashing in our old big house in Minnesota. We were hosted in Chicago and Portland, and all were very positive experiences (except that it was really hard to find hosts in popular places!)

Music, Movies, and Books

Chris plays the trombone (now, only sometimes), but otherwise we like all good music without any genre limitations!

Our common favorite author is Octavia Butler.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Utah is an amazing place. Even though was there a few years ago I remember it as magical (or out of this world).

But there's beauty in every place you just have to have your writers eyes open!
