ABOUT ME

Hello!

We have both been living in London for the last few years - we live communally and are interested in creating spaces for people to live and express themselves / meet / learn / organise together ... I (Lucy) have been doing lots of unpaid work lately, training and learning. Euan works as a carpenter - he also likes to grow things, make (lethal) ciders and wines, he's very knowledgeable about plants and their properties.

Last year we spent many months hitchhiking from London to Romania - we learnt a lot of history and had many unexpected experiences ...!

This summer we left england on our bikes, we're aiming to meet a friend in Bucharest mid October, but until then will be cycling and camping through Europe . couchsurfing will be a luxury and a good way for us to meet local people!

PHILOSOPHY

Always be ready to learn, keep it real

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We're looking for kind hosts in the Balkans ..

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Officially I couchsurfed with a big group of friends in America years ago, as well as in Barcelona and in Budapest. We also stayed with people in France/Romania/Austria hitchhiking around last year. Generally, we are always couchsurfing, travelling often and with friends in London.
