About Me


Make the most of life


We're Aussies living in New Zealand.
We're in our mid-30s with no kids (and no plans to have them). Our careers are important to us, and so are our out-of-work activities.
When we're not sailing, we often spend weekends at the holiday house we co-own with friends in Martinborough (a wine region an hour north of Wellington).


Don't sit around waiting for life to happen to you - make it happen!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We've recently started hosting people on our 'couch'.


We've had seven couch surfers so far on our 'couch'.


We both enjoy sailing, snorkelling, cycling, travelling off the beaten track, and good food, wine & conversation. Sonia sings and David skis.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

We met travelling around Australia with a 'Science Circus' - doing theatrical science shows to rural and remote communities. We saw some amazing things that year, including the Kimberley region.

The most amazing thing we've done is a trip to the foothills of the Himalayas in Myanmar (Burma) to vist the Naga tribes.
