About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Nick - travel from Los Angeles through Central and South America overland (no flights allowed); Tati - finish Landscape Architecture degree. We both finish at the end of February, 2014.

ABOUT ME

Nick - I am currently traveling from Los Angeles, California to Brazil! 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! Now I am visiting most of South America.

Tati - I am finishing my Landscape Architecture degree; I am almost done! I am working on my thesis project right now and spending many hours studying while Nick is on his trip.

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.
