About Me

We are a couple a little bit quiet at first but very sociable, talkative, curious, open-minded, friendly, etc.

We LOVE travelling & taking pictures.

We like meeting and hosting new people, eating & cooking, trying new things (activities), playing board games, watching movies, learning about different cultures, languages and the world's great diversity, drinking beer & wine, planning our next trip or vacation, listening to music, laughing, etc.

Our friends say that we are: committed, accomplices, dynamic, adventurous and complementary.

We work to raise money and travel around the world!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Spending an evening in a hotel room is soooooo boring! It's much better to meet local people and stay with them!
