About Me


We quit our jobs to travel in India for five months. Soon we will be on our way to Tokyo to experience the wonders of Japan for the first time. We are curious, gentle, and flexible people. We love good food and great storytellers. We are new to couchsurfing, but we've heard only great things through the travelers we've met.


The secret to life is enjoying the passing of time.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We are new to couchsurfing. For the next several months we will be traveling. But when we return to the San Francisco Bay area, we will be hoping to host people in our apartment.


None yet!


Writing essays, drawing Indian cows, walking great cities, train travel, reading travelogues, cooking in kitchens big and small, swapping tales, being nice to pets.
