About Me


seeing, doing, listening, learning


We are easy going people who enjoy seeing new places, learning new things and taking life one day at a time.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We had some amazing hosts around the world through help-x and we wanted to pass on the hospitality. We have hosted several people at our home in Syracuse, NY and we are looking to surf as we continue our travel adventures in Europe and beyond!


We enjoy meeting new people, music, hiking, camping, canoeing, vegetarian cooking, a good brew, fungi, and reading.
