About Me


To couchsurf the earth making friends everywhere we go!!


We are friendly and fun #teacherstravelers We strive to make our world a better place everywhere we go. We love to explore new places and meet new people on this amazing planet we call home! We just moved to South Korea in July 2020!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We share with everyone all about CS! When we travel we surf and meet people. When we are home we host. Meeting people from all over the world is always fun and interesting!


We have met many friendly, generous, and fun people both as couchsurfers, as hosts, and in events organized by couchsurfers in our city. They have shared their culture, their stories, and their friendship with us. Thanks everyone!
