About Me


Putting the 'tea' in hospitali-tea


We are Sam and Mina, easy-going, chilled people who are currently living in Brighton with our dog friend Miguel. Interested in meditation, spirituality, art, photography, music, sports, we generally enjoy the company of equally easy-going people who are nice to each other. We love our tea, we love nature, we love travelling and our home comforts too. Our daytime jobs are as freelancers.


Our philosophy is evolving all the time, and we are learning a lot about life on this journey we're now taking together. If you have something to bring to our way of thinking we would love to hear from you!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Over the years of being CS members we have surfed, hosted and generally tried to get involved in the CS community by going to meetings and events, etc. We've found that a lot of our good friends in recent years have been met through CS because it acts as a sort of social filter through which one can find world-aware, pleasant, generous and generally like-minded people.

As it happens, we also met through CS ourselves!


We have both hosted and surfed several times, and we have met lots of people through Couchsurfing in towns we've lived in and visited, so far with only positive experiences.


Generally open to anything we haven't tried before, whatever comes our way. Interests change all the time!

Music, Movies, and Books

Anything that inspires - we love all different kinds of artistic creations.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Anytime we do something we've never previously done, it's an amazing experience. We are on a mission to experience life as fully as possible - every breath, every day and every sensation that comes our way.

Teach, Learn, Share

There are probably lots of little things we can teach, including business studies and the workings of the music industry. Having previously been a lecturer, Sam is also pretty good at advising you on thesis writing / research projects, so feel free to ask if if you're in the middle of writing a paper!

Mina is a photographer and will be happy to teach you anything she knows. She can also dance and sing and can teach you Spanish.
