Join Couchsurfing to see Kees’s full profile. It’s free!
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.
