About Me


Prepping for RTW!


You can call me G, as most who know me do. I have a thirst for travel. You only have one life to live so I, along with my partner in crime, my girlfriend Q, are doing just that.. one globe-trotting city at a time.

My girlfriend & I host a travel blog.


Live life to the fullest. Why wait to travel?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Looking to surf & experience places & other cultures and places through locals. This is done easier through good food & drinks.


Have heard so many great experiences couchsurfing, we're really eager to surf many couches and hang out with many cool hosts during our RTW trip!


Travel (obviously) food (lots of it), photography, technology, adventure, occasional partying and everything else life has to offer.
