About Me


To finish our journey on budget and to meet Jackie Chan


Lauren and I are currently travelling around the world between January 2011 and January 2012. During our first leg, in Russia, we met a couple finishing their journey whom highly recommended couch surfing as an alternative way to see the world, an option that truly appeals to the both of us.

We both have a large retail and customer service background, are hard-working and are always ready to get our hands dirty. Lauren has a degree in Forensics and I have a degree in Graphic design (+5 years work experience), we are more than happy to apply this knowledge wherever possible to help. We are certified open water scuba divers and I love to play sports and teach art skills such as hand drawing to expert photoshop techniques. We are both very punctual, fit and pick up new skills easily, but most of all very friendly, well-mannered and approachable. We are both vegan (a stricter form of vegetarianism). Thank you for reading, we look forward to surfing with you soon.


We have no real religious path but are very inspired by the Buddha way of life...kindness and happiness.
