About Me


Find the spirit of Sandino and watch a baseball game! Sadly no hosting at this time...


We are a Scottish couple currently living, working, creating on the other side of the Atlantic.

Right now we work for stay at a hotel in the mountains of Guatemala near Antigua. Nicky also teaches Art and English at the local school. We're doing our best to learn Spanish and to learn more about the culture here. We are hoping to explore more of Central America in the next couple of months before heading North to Mexico.


tread with care and pay attention...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


when we´re stable we host, when we´re moving we hope to surf! (currently we´re on the move)


woot toot toot for the Couchsurfing marvel!

all our favourite creatures appear from the couchsurfing undergrowth....


music, learning, life, football, books, food, philosophy, politics, morality, revolution, dancing, community... film, adventure, greenery, arts and crafts, the unknown, obscure music, obscure stuff in general, ceilidh, pirates (of the more humane disposition).
