About Me


Learning as much as we can through traveling, visiting other countries and cultures, and meeting people from around the world. Each new experience brings something new to our life that we've never known before while encouraging others to live their dream.


I used to think that life wasn't exciting before. However, the wonderful gift of life, beautiful people, and unexpected experiences has proven me wrong.

I've had a lot of health problems and suffered so I spent many years taking care of myself, trying to recover, and putting my dreams on hold. Now I'm finally living them! =)

Ask me what I want to do and what my passions are and the the list is endless. I'm one to dream big and believe anything is possible. I've experienced too many miracles to believe otherwise.

I like to try new things, visit new places, and meet people. I love adventure and I love life. I love to laugh and I love making others laugh. I also enjoy thought provoking conversations because there is a lot to learn from people, their ideas, and their experiences.

We are a couple who are looking for good friends from around the world. =)

We are calling our travels a celebration of life through different cultures. We are continuously amazed how much you can learn from each new destination you go. It's a wonderful opportunity to grow, learn, and discover more about one's self. =)


If you want to live a remarkable life, you have to be willing to take the risk.

You only live once so make sure and live it well while inspiring others to do the same.

Happiness is a gift that is for free.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We have become a part of the couch surfing community in Paris. We have hosted people and we are happy to meet people who are traveling to show them around while giving them tips and advice of the area.


We have met wonderful people through CS and have made some lifelong and treasured friends. We will forever cherish our time with the different people we have had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know. Some people have become like family to us as well. =)
