To be good hosts, have a warm & welcoming home, and to go out in search of good people & make friends
We're a couple living the good life in Paekakariki on the Kapiti Coast.
We value experience over things - so we don't lead a totally cluttered life, but we do have views of the sea.
We're both passionate about making the world a nicer place to life - El works with deaf-blind people to enable them to communicate, and Sam always seems to have a few projects on the go- be they social business, or enviro-focused.
We welcome interesting people from all walks of life, but come prepared for a chat!
Learning and practicing the art of being a positive force in our time on the earth, whilst enjoying the wonderful sights, sounds, tastes, smells & touch of the world around us.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
We're new to Couch Surfing, but love the ethos and the surfers we've met so far. That's what makes us want to host - and probably in the future, surf.
We've not couch surfed through this network, but of course we've had some good times.
When I was travelling in Africa, I was put up by some friends of my family who I'd never met. What an experience - not only was I looked after & fed - I was taken around town, shown the city (Nairobi) and got to meet some friends of theirs. It was a real insight into life in that country, and that forms part of my want to give others the experience too.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Sam: A dawn microlite flight over the Victoria Falls, Zambia/Zimbabwe, Africa.
El: "The first time I sampled my Golden Gaytime cake" (that'd be El's famous ice-cream cake mortar'd together with extra cookies & cream ice-cream & Milky Ways. Yup.)
Teach, Learn, Share
A sense of the silly, and the simple fun. A sense of humour and warmth.
Stories from different cultures
We have a few skills and a bit of knowledge, but to say we could teach anyone would be a bit cheeky. We're here to exchange more than teach.
