About Me


Visiting the world, one continent at a time


We are a couple currently on sabbatical and traveling throughout Asia until we're broke. Food and travels are our passions. Even better, discovering new culture through street food! We love hiking, beautiful scenery, animals, the ocean and meeting new people.

Marianne likes to keep busy and learning new things. She learned to knit on YouTube, mastered baking fresh bread, and speak fluent Spanish after a few glasses of wine.
Peter can ALWAYS eat. Hungry? Bring Peter along. Things Peter loves that Marianne does not: Bulldogs - the more they snore and drool, the better. Video games - When Marianne goes out of town for work, Peter will often pull an all-nighter gaming and end up calling in sick at work. Baseball - it's the greatest game on earth!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I experimented couch surfing with awesome people in Ireland and England, and it really made me want to participate in that exchange, help people learn about my beautiful city! Right now, with my husband we are traveling for an undetermined period of time and try to get in touch with locals as much as possible to get a better, more real feeling of the places we visit.

We look forward to have a space to host when we get back to Montreal.

Teach, Learn, Share

We can teach how to make fresh pasta and bread from scratch, we can share lots of anecdotes and travel stories that will restore your faith in humanity.
