About Me


Since we can't travel right now, we are excited to meet fun people through hosting!


We both met while teaching English in China in 2005 and have been inseparable since! We are lucky to have found the travel bug in each other because that is a huge part of both of our lives. In 2006, we travelled around South East Asia and that was amazing. Our favourite country was Laos! Then in the summer of 2010, we did an epic trek to 12 countries and had the best time.

Now we are both teachers living in Chilliwack... Trying to save money so that we can travel during our holidays! We already have a trip planned to Japan in March 2016 and are excited to hopefully couch surf there :)


My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Our first experience with couchsurfing was in Europe and we loved it. Since we've been home we've hosted a bit and really enjoyed that as well :)

We both work two jobs so we are pretty busy. But give us a shout and if we can, we would love to host you!


Since have have no time nor money to travel at the moment, we are trying to give back to the community by hosting whenever we can. We really enjoyed our time surfing couches and can't wait until we can do it again!
