About Me

CURRENT MISSION / QUE HACEMOS

We just returned to NZ as of June 2015 after travelling for 2.5 years in Latin America. We are adjusting to life at home again and we welcome all people from wherever to come and stay with us. We fell in love with Latin America and we miss it dearly!! Even if you don't need a place to stay come say hi whilst you're in Napier! If you're Argentinian or Uruguayan - bring maté!!

If you want to come stay you don't have to write us an f-ing book like many people want. Just say hi and that you'd like to come stay for s bit 😊

Hace poco tiempo que nos volvimos de latino AmĂ©rica (Junio 2015) despuĂ©s de viajando allĂ­ por 2.5 años. Ahora estamos ajustandonos a la vida en casa y cualquier gente del mundo estĂĄ bienvenido a visitar/quedarse con nosotros. Éramos enamorado con latino AmĂ©rica y la extrañamos tanto!! Aun si no necesitas un lugar para quedarte, por lo menos ven y dĂ­ganos 'hola!' mientras estas en Napier - tomamos un cafĂ© y charlamos o algo. AdemĂĄs, si eres Argentino o Uruguayo traigamos el matĂ©!!

Si quieres venir a nuestra casa, no tienes que escribirnos un libro muy personal como piden muchas personas. Simplemente díganos hola me gustaría quedarme en tu casa un poco 😊

ABOUT ME / NOSOTROS

We're a couple in our early 30s. We love to have adventures and meet new people, we want to see and do EVERYTHING. We believe in travel with a conscience; giving back to communities, reduced carbon travel, embracing other cultures, and doing it on a very small budget, camping, hitch hiking etc :D But most importantly we want to have fun!
Somos una pareja en nuestras 30s. Nos encanta tener aventuras y encontrar nueva gente. Nos gustaria ver y hacer todo! Creemos en viajando con una consciencia - dando a las comunidades y pueblos, ecolĂłgicamente, encontrando la cultua y viajando economicamente, acampando, hacer dedo etc. Lo mas importante - divertir!

PHILOSOPHY / FILOSOFIA

Be willing to try anything once, always say yes to opportunities, remember that life is happening now and there's no point waiting for tomorrow. Treat others with respect and how we would want to be treated, and always be ready to learn something new.
Trate algo por lo menos una vez, facil decir "si" a las oportunidades. Recuerde que la vida esta ahora, no espere para manana. Trate otras con respete - como te gustaria que te tratan ellos. Sea listo para aprender algo nuevo!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING / QUE HACEMOS EN CS

From December 2012 we're going to be traveling on a long adventure. We'll be flying into Mexico City and have no plan from there bar keeping moving. No time limit, just wandering the world. We're hoping to make a lot of friends through couchsurfing during our trip. UPDATE: June 26th 2015 we are back in NZ living in Napier.
Desde el Diciembre 2012 hemos viajado desde Mexico por centro america, hasta sur america. No nos falta tiempo (pero tal vez dinero). Pero esperamos que nos encontraremos muchos amigos por CS en este viaje. ATENCIÓN: ya a partir de el 26 de Junio estamos en casa viviendo en la ciudad de Napier.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Brylee - Many of my most memorable experiences involve travel; sitting alone watching the sun rise over the Thar desert, being taken care of by the wonderful people of Nepal after breaking my foot, discussing history and politics with Tibetan refugees, being surrogate mother to a baby howler monkey in Belize, scuba diving through phenomenal reefs, and spending a year living in Germany to name a few.
Muchos de mis experiencias mås memorables implican los viajes; sentado solo viendo la salida del sol sobre el desierto de Thar, siendo atendido por la maravillosa gente de Nepal después de romper mi pie, discutiendo la historia y la política con los refugiados tibetanos, siendo madre de alquiler a un mono aullador bebé en Belice, el buceo a través de los arrecifes fenomenales y de pasar un año viviendo en Alemania por nombrar algunos.

Mikey - being alone and scared and out of my comfort zone in some foreign place and learning to love it! The mad and wonderful experiences of everyday in Latin America with the love of my life and best friend :)
estar solo y asustado y fuera de mi zona de confort en algĂșn lugar extranjero y aprender a amarlo! Los experiencias locas de cada dĂ­a en latino AmĂ©rica - lo bueno y lo malo - los hice junto con el amor de mi vida y mejor amiga.
