About Me


Change our point of view


We are Alex (girl) and Miron (boy) - a couple from San Francisco, California.
We just came back from a 6 months trip in Asia and Europe and are excited to get involved in CS locally. Here are some trip photos:


Non-dualistic spirituality, many worlds

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We discovered couchsurfing while traveling in Japan in March 2008. Since then we've surfed couches in Marseille, Brussels and Budapest, hosted surfers from Denmark, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Romania, Canada and US, attended events in London and San Francisco and we hosted a CS dinner in Amsterdam - pictures on Flickr.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love cooking for our hosts and surfers; it's always fun to be a new country and discover what I can do with local ingredients.
We are also specialists in proper technique of Japanese tea making and will be happy to share it (and the tea) :)
We are studying French and would love to practice it with others.
