Join Couchsurfing to see Kath’s full profile. It’s free!
Our current mission is to live, love and learn all that is Dutch!!! we are wanting to meet some fantastic people in the Netherlands then set ourselves up to stay and live within the Dutch culture. Once set up we will be doing trips all around europe.
We're a couple of open minded, kind, artistic, fun, respectful individuals who love to travel and learn about other cultures and ways of life.
Alex is a jazz singer by night and journalist / writer by day who enjoys a good glass of wine or a beer whilst kicking back with great company and I (kath) am passionate about all things photographic and poetic. I've also studied journalism and love writing, not to mention getting to Alex's gigs and admiring her fantastic voice :)...oh and I have a strong interest in peace and conflict theory :)
We're respectful people who are looking to meet like minded folk.
Kindness and Understanding.
Art is poetry is life.
Live life like heaven is here on earth.
Something that my Oma said to me when I was younger..."we all bleed the same"..... basically, that was the foundation for my love of people and my personal mission to understand why some people in the world don't understand this simple fact.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
At the moment we are only able to participate in actual surfing as we will not likely have a place of our own set up for the first month when we land in the Netherlands. We will then be open for hosting and sharing our experiences with other travelers.
We are looking forward to some awesome surfing experiences. We are new to the world of surfing but we're very keen to meet some wonderful people who share our passions for travel, acceptance, kindness, adventure and a global community.
Travel / Cultural immersion, Music / jazz / collaboration, Art / Photography, Poetry / slam and spoken word.

Music, Movies, and Books
Anything involving Stacey Ann Chin, Maya Angelou....the list goes on when thinking about wonderfully outspoken and knowledgeable people

Ella, Etta James, Katie Noonan, BB, Robert Johnson, Mraz, TZU, any jazz, blues, roots and soul....(kath will dance to basically anything with a beat, hip hop gets her going)
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Between us we've seen and done some pretty fantastic and amazing stuff. I decided to watch my friend give birth to her child which was rather jaw dropping, Alex has seen and done many many things in this life, from performing on stages all around, to snow boarding across the globe.....Oh and I've met members of the royal family of Saudi Arabia which was pretty cool.
Teach, Learn, Share
Positive peace can only exist where structural or embedded violence is absent, it's not enough just to 'not bomb' a place. We all have to work together to break down walls, learn about each other and replace humanity and understanding where it has been lost.
