About Me


Spread love!


Greetings! We're Heather and Matt from Canada. We love learning, laughing, and widening our experiences...we dig differences, but moreso the similiarities that underlie them...sharing and building ideas with indepedant minds, whether over casks of cool guinness, or thimbles of warm kool aid, is an old favourite past time...can't help but laugh (mostly at ourselves), go out for drinks n dance, read, take photos, and when possible, to stick it to the man...we make opportunities to explore our awesome planet, always with the hope of getting completely lost...
we met while teaching English in Korea, then went backpacking, then did it all over again.

Our home these days is Melbourne


Live every day from the crack of dawn till you can't keep your eyes open.

Simplify, simplify, simplify.

Nothing is so great as this day!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting when we're in one place, being hosted when travelling. We used Matt's CS account in earlier years, so please check out his page if you're interested in reading references from 11 other people we hosted in Korea (he's #1 on my friends list)


All Fantastic!!! we've learned the most amazing stories and had the best adventures while couchsurfing...it's definitely our preferred method of travel (at least when we don't have stomach gremlins ;)


Heather loves sunrises, yoga, hiking, dancing, laughing, learning, teaching, art, reading, cooking, having fun.
Matt loves Heather. he also loves most all the stuff she loves, as well as photography, philosophy and guinness.
