To go from New York to Southern Argentina (and everywhere in between) without a car
Me and my boyfriend Sean are on a 20 month mission to see the US, Central and South America. We are interested in meeting others who share an adventurous spirit and can give us good tips about the towns they live in.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
As CouchSurfers so far but plan to host when we eventually return to the UK.
It's all pretty new to us but we love the concept.
Laura: Drinking tea, seeing the world, reading, learning about different cultures, knitting, camping and campfires, baking, watching live music, eating, drinking tea (you can never have enough tea).
Sean: Literature, writing, cooking and eating good food, music (playing and watching), football (soccer).
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: Bob Dylan, The Smiths, Fleet Foxes, Arcade Fire, Micah P Hinson, Devendra Banhart, Neil Young, Velvet Underground, folky stuff, old French stuff, indie stuff, the odd bit of gypsy jazz.
Movies: Most things by Mike Leigh or Ken Loach. Classic comedies, indie flicks, documentaries and British classics.
Books: Steinbeck (Travels with Charley is one of the best travel books out there), Orwell, Kerouac and The Beats, Ian Banks, JD Salinger, Roddy Doyle, Tom Wolfe, Bret Easton Ellis, Hunter S Thompson, Hemingway and many more.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I have a terrible memory so these are from the past week - cycling through the Vermont countryside, catching a skunk stealing the food I'd saved for breakfast from my tent, making cider with an Amish apple press. All of which are a first.
Teach, Learn, Share
We want to learn about other people's way of life, cultures and cuisines.
Oh and Laura can teach you how to hoot like an owl!
