About Me

We are an international couple (Lebanese-Romanian/Canadian) living in the South of the USA. We are both multilingual (I speak Arabic, English, French and Spanish and Ramona speaks Romanian, French, English, Spanish and a bit of Italian) and love to learn and practice different languages in an informal environment.

We share a passion for travelling and having good food with friends and family. Ramona and I love to cook and experiment with different cuisines.

Between the two of us sharing our culinary skills, one never gets hungry, parole de chef! :)

Meeting people is what resources us and opens the world to us. As two responsible adults, we both have full time jobs (I am an IT specialist and Ramona is a language teacher).

we are not able to travel as much as we would like. So, by having international friends, welcoming travelers and couchsurfers at our place, the world comes to us.

We love being outdoors Gardening, Hiking or Canoeing!

We are looking forward to the encounters that are coming along during our journey!
