About Me

CURRENT MISSION

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.

ABOUT ME

We are a 26 year old couple currently living in London. We are friendly, laid back and look forward to meeting people from all over the world by hosting them!

We backpacked around the US and Canada in 2011 and stayed with some great couchsurfing hosts and made some really good friends. We'd like to return the favour by hosting when we can here in London!

We love to discover a city by staying with a local.

Beth likes taking lots of photos, learning languages, discovering new cities and chinese food.

Aled likes discovering new music, playing guitar, animal conservation, learning about space, playing chess and spending an evening in a good pub.

PHILOSOPHY

"What's money? A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do."
Bob Dylan

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
