ABOUT ME

Emma (30) and Quentin (30) - married 2 years ago. Emma grew up internationally (born in the UK, Canada, Singapore, Australia , New Zealand) but calls New Zealand home now. Quentin is a Kiwi. We've been living in the UK (Reading and Oxford) for 3 1/2 years. Emma's an environmental project manager and Q is an academic in biology/psychology/anthropology. We spend alot of time outdoors/ at good cafes/ taking photos/ playing sports/ watching films.

PHILOSOPHY

Try to see things through other people's eyes.

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We're just about to embark on a trip home to New Zealand from the UK, overland as much as practically possible! We're taking the Trans-Mongolian Express and then from China we'll make our way trough SE Asia and then fly from Bangkok to Auckland. Exciting! We'd love to host people when we're in NZ and set up in our own home.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None so far. Have heard great things though!

Insegna, impara, condividi

Quentin: talks philosophy, language and cultural evolution

Emma: Um ... risk assessments? How to put together an emergency response plan? Tree planting. I'm not sure if anyone would actually be interested in these things though! :)

Would love to learn how to cook international foods, languages (or phrases at least) and hearing new (local) music.
