About Me


See how many student loans we can rack up.


My cousin and I are embarking on a major study break from our masters programs and traveling around Italy and Croatia. Our last adventure together was to Australia a decade ago. 30s can be fun, too...right?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couchsurfing is brand new to us, though we love the idea. Couches and surfing exclusively are okay too.


Eating. Reading. Hiking. Finding good swimming holes. Watching and playing soccer/football/futbol/calcio. Cooking. Beer. Reality tv (guilty pleasure). Camping. Dogs (the bigger and hairier the better). The Muppets. Games. Learning naughty words in new languages. Making profiles late at night.
