About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Nicole, the Hispanic Studies major, wants to improve her Spanish. Also, she wants to see the artwork and sights she studied. We both want to immerse ourselves in culture and... something less trite.

ABOUT ME

Nicole and I have been friends for over 10 years. We are trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, cheerful, considerate, thrifty, courageous, and respectful! Actually, that's the Australian Boy Scout Law. But still applicable in our case :)

We're both college graduates, and in August 2011 are beginning dental school and medical school, respectively. I know we don't have any references or reviews, but we are not crazy people! Or thieves, but we may steal your heart. Our trip to Spain has to be thrifty, so we're hoping to rely on the good people of couchsurfing.com to save some $$.
