About Me


To return the favour of couch surfing.


Suzi and Josephine - old and dear friends, now housemates. We enjoy talking with new people, laughing, exploring unknown cities and streets, dancing, cooking, grocery shopping, reading.. most things!


To contribute to the world in a positive way. To be gentle to others, respectful and decent.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We have both benefited from the couch-surfing phenomenon. Now, we're back from our various journeys and in a house which can accommodate a couch-surfer or two.

We are excited to meet new people from across the globe, and to share our wonderful city with them.

When we're traveling, we can think of no better way to immerse ourselves in the culture there other than staying with a local, talking with them, learning and laughing, sharing stories.


I (Suzi) have couch surfed throughout Portugal, Hungary, and Croatia. I have met some very special people along the way.


People, especially the interesting ones.
Politics - in my own country and abroad.
Art -including theatre, visual art, music..
World cuisines (favourites are thai, italian, indian)
Science - Especially Neurology and the relationship between the mind and the body, why we are who we are etc. and Medicine obviously (which is both an art and a science they say)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hung out in Moscow with a bunch of young people, drinking absinthe on the underground railway.
Hiked throughout the Israeli desert.
Visited Uluru in the Northern Territory - saw it by sunrise and it was absolutely stunning!

Teach, Learn, Share

Medicine - free advice! but can also teach some rudimentary first aid and share lots of interesting (and gruesome) stories.

Cooking - can bake to boot.

Singing/music - like jamming, singing with others.
