About Me

Hi! We are Peace Corps volunteers from Austin, TX living in Keetmanshoop, Namibia. Megan is an ESL teacher at a public high school, and Aaron does business development in the community. We will finish our 2 years of service here in a few months, and plan to do some traveling in South America before returning to Texas.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We were introduced to couchsurfing through a friend. We enjoy meeting new people and helping out when we can. We hope to host a few visitors before leaving Namibia, and then try out couchsurfing in South America.


We both love traveling & exploring. Other favorite things: running, hiking, soccer, books, languages, cultures, dogs, wine, craft beer, adventures, friends (new and old), Namibian sunsets, TexMex and sushi.
