About Me

CURRENT MISSION

We have moved to Spain to spend a year or two here.

ABOUT ME

Nick - I traveled from Los Angeles, California to Chile! I participated in a project to donate an ambulance by driving it from California to Honduras. Then from there, I traveled via bus, taxi, ferry, tuk tuk and many other methods to Panama. I took a Catamaran from Panama to Cartagena, Colombia and it was the best experience of my life! I completed a route around South America all via bus.

Tati - I finished my Landscape Architecture degree! I worked on several projects with a well known firm in the Los Angeles area, but my commute to the office was stressful. I needed to come to Spain to recover.

PHILOSOPHY

Keep it simple. Work hard, eat healthy, get outside and exercise. Spend time with friends, and find ways to help others out.

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We have not been able to host, but we have had great surfing experiences. We also meet travelers to show them around town.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We had a few great couch surfing experiences. Our hosts were very friendly and extremely helpful. They were the highlight of our trip! Before couchsurfing even existed, Nick hosted a friend from Brazil along with 2 people he had never met; they stayed with him for a month! He organized a couple of roadtrips from here to go camping and visit San Francisco.
