Join Couchsurfing to see Katharina’s full profile. It’s free!
Katharina is originally from Salzburg, Austria and Ryan is from Adelaide, Australia. We've both been travelling for many many years and have lived away from home for long periods of time.
We met each other travelling in Africa back in 2011, spent the summer of 2012 living in Austria and then decided that we wanted to go and start a new life together in Canada (Vancouver) where we lived until 2014.
We spent 2015 living in Australia while we applied for our Canadian PR and in 2016 we returned to beautiful British Columbia to live for good!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Kathi first couch surfed in Hong Kong. Since then we have both couch surfed in Hawaii and Texas. We have both stayed with many hosts all around the world, but many times not officially through the Couch Surfing website.
When we moved to Vancouver we met one of our best friends Rob through couch surfing and moved in with him. During the 18 months we lived together we probably hosted 1-2 people per week and it was great getting to know so many other travellers. We've made many life long friends from what started out as a few nights stay with us and hope to make more.
Travel is our biggest interest, it's how we met each other and also why we are here on Couch Surfing!
We both love the outdoors and enjoy hiking, camping, snowboarding and more recently surfing. Kathi really likes to downhill bike too.

Music, Movies, and Books
Ryan has been a big fan of Pearl Jam all his life and has travelled to see them play allover the world in Adelaide, London, New York, Berlin, Prague, Vancouver, Seattle, Spokane, Portland and Austin.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Kathi once took the train across Siberia from Vladivostok to Moscow. This was definitely one of her most interesting experiences, since her and her friend were the only tourists and the only girls on board;)
Ryan did the Mongol Rally in 2011 driving a very unsuitable 1.2L Fiat Siecento from London to Mongolia all across Europe and Central Asia. The car barely made it and the same could be said about the driver.
What I Can Share with Hosts
We like to share stories with people meet and if we're ever going out we try to do fun things that people we meet through couch surfing will enjoy doing with us too.
