About Me




We're Hilary and Kees (case), 1x Long Islander (NY) and 1x Dutch-New Zealander: broad-minded, easy-going (we like to think anyway) and sociable. We love camping, hiking, beach-going, cycle-touring (well me anyway - Hilary thinks it's "okay") and of course going out. We met in Wellington NZ back in the bad old days - and since this 2012 live in NYC. I'm a Teacher and Hilary does environmental consultancy and is usually out of town as such.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Host & surfer since the golden days of 2007.


The Hague, Antwerpen, Paris, Jerusalem, Sydney, San Francisco, Phoenix, Silver City, Austin, Savannah, Charleston, Nags Head, Virginia Beach, Walnutport (yeah wtf), Philadelphia... just to name a few. Surfed with at hosted many many great people and ended up in all sorts of amazing places.


Strong coffee, cafes, travel, politics, environmentalism, cycling, running, good food & drinks; Hilary loves to cook vegan style I like to try to help but it doesn't always work:/

If things get awkward we can always talk weather and I can pretend to like sports. But that surely won't happen...
