Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We have been surfing just twice. Once in Brisbane, with Debbie, and the other in Singapore with Kuni. Both awesome!


We found in CS an awesome way to travel and learn about others.


We love walk, read, run, chat, eat - try new food! -, take pictures, practice Karate and Yoga.Be togheter with friends and share a beer.
