Обо мне

CURRENT MISSION

Explore the world slowly, teaching as we go

ABOUT ME

Cate: I am easily excited, enthusiastic about life, and generally a positive, upbeat person. I love to try new things (especially food!)

Mike: I like music, movies, football(us yanks tend to call it soccer), and travel. I love stepping off the tourist path everywhere I go...I yearn to be with the locals, and to understand the way they live, eat, and have fun.

PHILOSOPHY

Cate: I believe everyone has a lot to share, and you can learn a ton just by being open to other people

Mike: I try to make all of my dreams a reality...I just don't want to be that old guy telling his grandchildren "I could have _______, but I had to ____."

Что привело меня на Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We're getting settled in Seoul and have nothing but bare hardwood floor, but we would love to meet up for coffee, tea, drinks, and sightseeing. Once we can get our hands on a couch, we'll be keen on hosting.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We stayed with some great folks throughout the UK, and met up with a few amazing people in Thailand...can't wait to meet more people through this great site.

Интересы

Cate: cooking and baking (particularly interested in natural ingredients and authentic ethnic cooking), triathlons, training for and running races, yoga, reading novels and interesting nonfiction, taking public transportation as much as possible, taking pictures of food for my blog, getting to really know people and places when I travel

Mike: Reading, listening to music, watching movies, organizing my pictures into neat little files, football, philosophy, tweeting, checking news.bbc.co.uk obsessively, seeking out good local music, getting in a good workout, rearranging furniture, packing my backpack for the next trip, and using oxford commas.

Классная вещь, которую я сделал(-а)

Cate: I've seen/done some amazing things on my travels, but there's still TONS more out there to see, so I'm working on that.

Mike: I once saw a man drink an entire bottle of syrup in 10 seconds...then heard him recount the night of puking that followed...apparently the syrup gave him a lot of energy, and he was awake all night.

Учу, учусь, делюсь опытом и информацией

Mike: I'd love to learn how to build websites, and to use Final Cut Pro.
