About Me


After a few years of hard slog in the NHS (our wonderful health service), we decided to have a break from it all.
We sold our house, packed up our belongings to a barn in York, and set off around the World. After 3 months in South East Asia, a few weeks in Australia then New Zealand, we're now in South America until Christmas 2009.
We have just done an 'intensive' Spanish language course (so we can now order a meal and book a bus!), and are ready to meet some South American people to tell us about their wonderful continent.


We are here to explore and learn as much about where we are and who we are with as possible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


A friend of ours mentioned about couch surfing when we were visiting her in Australia, so we looked it up and are about to have a go!

We love to meet new people to find out about the places they live. We enjoy the great outdoors and would much rather be out hiking on a sunny day than laid on a beach.
We enjoy sitting in a cafe or bar, passing the time with a nice coffee or beer, and good conversation.
