About Me


To live life to the fullest, experience everything we can and have fun!


We met at work in 2007, and have been together now for 3 years. We've been travelling since Febuary 2009 and are having a great time, seeing some fantastic sites and meeting amazing people!

We're both adventurous people and love adrenaline activities, being in the outdoors, as well as seeing the local culture and wildlife.

We live in Sutton Coldfield, close to Birmingham and have a spare room available for couch surfers.


Live life to have fun. Experience as much as you can and enjoy every moment of it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We stayed with couchsurfers whilst travelling in New Zealand and now we are home we'd like to give something back. We live next to a rail station so easy access to and from Birmingham, and we live a few minutes walk from Sutton Park, a large nature reserve in Sutton Coldfield.


playing music, listening to music, playing cards and board games, football, socialising, going to the theatre, meeting new people, travelling, nights at the pub, skiing, going to the beach, films, having picnics and bbqs, taking photos, reading a good book, visiting new places, having fun :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Watch anything once. I dont like to judge a film until I have watched it.

Music: I play clarinet/saxophone and piano, so enjoy classical music, but also love to listen to most music. My favourite bands are Elbow, Death cab for cutie, led zep, Rilo Kiley, greenday, amy mcdonald just to name a few.

Books: Torey Haydn books, the Harry Potter series, the Twilight series, most books based on a true story with a psychological basis.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I'd probably say the whole travelling experience has been the most amazing thing to do. We've done so much in the past year, it would be impossible to pick!
