About Me

Hi there, welcome on Nadja's and Andri's profile. We are a young Swiss couple (27 and 29) and love to travel together. We both quit our jobs and now travel in our van from Switzerland to Mongolia (Andri worked as an engineer and Nadja in PR/Tourism). 🚐 🇨🇭➡️🇲🇳

We both love hiking, camping, skiing and sailing.
When we were still living in Zurich, we tried to make the most out of our city-life: enjoy relaxed BBQs on our rooftop, went for a swim in the lake, did picnics in the park, went to parties with our friends and explored new food/drink places. 🏔️🍷🏕️🎉

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We're hoping to meet interesting people from all over the world, learn about other cultures and get inspirations for our trips :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Nadja: Cycling for 1000 km though Denmark with a friend and a not-so waterproof tent, going on a kick-ass road trip in California (including a 5-day trekking trip to Rae Lakes in Kings Canyon NP, gambling in Vegas and a hike through Bryce Canyon), taking part in the Thaipussam festival in Kuala Lumpur or an Indian wedding, experiencing the Slovenian winter in a van, swimming with fluorescent plankton next to our charter sailing boat, traveling through BC (Canada) with a local for two months with a 4x4 and a tent. 

Andri: Growing up in the mountains, helping in the field of avalanche prevention and mining and being a ski teacher in St. Moritz. Travel wise? Surfing Mentawaii islands, hiking the 400 km long Via Alpina trail with an elevation gain of 23'000 m trough Switzerland with a tent, sailing with different crews in super rough to bikini conditions, enjoying the badass California-roadtrip with our free-of-charge-upgraded Dodge Challenger (rental car) that we loaded with all our trekking gear and a (later) leaking cooling box and having American kids make fun of us because "we should have gotten the Hellcat instead" (apparently an even better version). 

Teach, Learn, Share

Nadja is motivated to learn Spanish and wants to do the international sailing license (which Andri already has), together we want to do more Via Ferratas/go climbing. We love to try new, local food and learn more about the countries we visit. Ohh, and we have lots of pictures to show from far away - if you want.

What I Can Share with Hosts

We're more than happy to share our travel stories, enjoy some time outdoors, cook for you one night or teach you some photography skills and share knowledge about wine, engineering or van conversions.

Countries I’ve Lived In
