About Me

We are a family with a toddler and a dog. So you either like kids and/or dogs if you come to visit us.

Laura is an environmental scientist and a permaculture trainer. Erik is a rigger and a caver in his free time.
Matilda is a toddler that loves books and Oscar is an adopted street dog.
We enjoy good music, being with friends, traveling and almost anything what's related to outdoors (rock climbing, bicycling, caving, mountaineering, mushroom picking, foraging, gardening, permaculture etc.)
Because we don't know each others language we speak in english.

PHILOSOPHY

Let it go

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's the best way to 'feel' the places you travel and the best way to bring the world to your home.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We don't accept 1 night requests and don't surf only for one night because we can't make a connection with the surfer/host, it makes you feel like a hostel and it's tiring.

Interests

traveling, hiking, rock climbing, camping, nature in general, gardening, permaculture, good movies, good music etc.

If you don't know where you want to go in Romania, here is a nice documentary
