About Me


I'm Kirsty, originally from South Africa. I grew up in East London, South Africa. Did close to a two year stunt as an au pair in Montclair New Jersey and then returned to study and work in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
I met my bf at the time Chad in Port Elizabeth at work and we decided to go on an adventure together and moved to Cali for work in Sept 2015 whom is now my fiancee :)

We both fun, loving, cool but quirky(funny weird) and sometimes silly, movie-loving, adventure seeking people :) We love travelling and trying all the typical "touristy" things. We especially love also getting off the beaten track and spending time in nature. We not hardcore hikers or anything but we really love hiking in the redwoods that are in abundance in Cali.

We are wanting to explore USA and NorCal as much as possible and make friends along the way.

Can find me on Instagram kirsty_su

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We always used to stay in hotels but feel it is harder getting to know an area or meet people as it is a bit isolating.

We love emmersing ourselves in a culture and getting to know locals and finding out about the places they love in their city; where they love to go, eat, hang out and my favorite question is "if you had family here for a few days where would you take/touristy things you'd recommend them to do and what restaurants would you eat at"

I love asking questions :) We love meeting people and getting to know their stories and having DMC'S (deep meaningful conversations). I love getting to know what makes people tick. Some of the most interesting people or conversations I have had have been with random strangers in an airport/bus/plane or at a random establishment. I feel couch surfing will increase our chances of meeting kewl interesting people. I also feel I will become more connected with USA and the diverse range of people that call it home :)))
