About Me

Stu - Australian, Dana - Latvian. We met in London and since then we've had lived together in London, Riga, Berlin, Auckland and just recently we moved to Gold Coast, Australia.
A couple, looking for interesting experience and wanting to explore and learn as much as possible.

Stu studies Electrical Engineering at Griffith University.
And I'm kept busy at a travel agency.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because it is brilliant! And since 2006 and after 25 countries - I am still alive and willing to host and be hosted.


Traveling places, cooking things, laughing, experience changes and discovering world.
We also love board games and hiking.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Camino di Santiago - we walked and backpacked 900km from South of France, across Spain to Atlantic ocean. Six weeks of ancient pilgrimage route, blisters, wild nature and amassing people on the way.

Teach, Learn, Share

We would love to learn your special food recipe. (Anything besides the seafood. Seafood is a no-no for us.)
Or anything you have up in your sleeve! We're curious!

We can teach you how to mix cocktails (both of us have wild experience as bartenders) and make a Spanish omelet.

What I Can Share with Hosts

We have a fold out sofa at the spare room.

We live about 20 minutes walk away from the beach.

Mind - we are not locals and have moved here recently.

If you want to stay with us - please put "yellow" in your letter. We like personal experience in this CouchSurfing world.
