About Me


Sleep at our home and maybe one day we can sleep at yours; travel the entire world, every last spot


Come meet us to find out more ;)

Dave - I like to travel and meet people. My girlfriend drinks like a fish, she knows many drinking games =)

I wish I could travel more. I'm really easy going and simple. I'll treat you with respect and you should do the same =) I like meeting people, and I like listening.

Lorraine - I love to sleep. I just love to eat. I love the beach and water. =] I love to sing at the top of my lungs. I like karaoke and I like to drink. I want to fly... a plane, out of a plane... I like to party. I love to dance. Music is my soul mate. I like everything. I enjoy working my brain and learning new things. I was taught to work hard, and everything I have I have earned. but I play as hard as I work if not harder ;] I'm protective of those I love. Photography is a hobby. I like to remember everything so I take millions of pictures. Then I can never forget a memory. I love adventure, traveling SO MUCH and extreme sports although I'm not good at it. I wish I could spend my WHOLE LIFE traveling and volunteering. Mostly I'm me. Throughout life, people come and people go. The question is can you make a difference?


Keep it simple, be nice, relax

Getting angry just frustrates things

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


If you want to stay on our couch, please write the word FUNPACK anywhere in the letter, thanks! It's best if you read our profile before you request to surf our couch, so you know what you're getting into.

Also please write something personal about yourself and something we have in common. We don't want to read a bunch of copy and paste message that everyone gets. If you fail to do this, you likely will get a NO. Thanks!!


Amazing experiences. Couchsurfing is the best way to meet locals, and find the best little places to eat, what to see, and not get caught in tourist traps.
It´s the road less travelled but the golden path.
