To live, love & laugh...
We have been married for 8 years but together for more than 12. After working in the UK and Cyprus we decided to take some time out to travel properly... i.e. without work getting in the way. We spent 5 years on the road travelling north and central America in a motorhome before emigrating to Canada.
You'll never regret the things you do as much as the things you don't!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
We've had the pleasure of couch-surfing with other hosts in several countries. Also we have been able to host a couple of times - at our home in England and in our motorhome whilst we were travelling in Canada.
Travelling (obviously!), scuba diving, climbing, skydiving, hiking and motorbiking.
- scuba diving
- rock climbing
Music, Movies, and Books
When we're travelling this category broadens somewhat when we're relying on book-swaps!! Some authors; Lee Child, Ken Follett, James Patterson, Terence Strong, Andy McNab, Bill Bryson, Jeremy Clarkson. Adventure travel books are great and so inspiring! (that's more Helen's department - she's the boss of where we're going/what we're seeing!)
Music - the invaluable Ipod has anything from Crowded House, U2, Prince and The Jam to Michael Buble, Andrea Bocelli and Keith Urban. Also love Ministry of Sound (the music rather than the club culture though)
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
In December 2004 we both quit our jobs and took 'early retirement' to travel. We bought a 36ft RV/Motorhome and spent 4 years travelling around America, Canada & Mexico in it. During these adventures we discovered and fell in love with the Okanagan region of British Columbia, Canada and have recently emigrated permanently.
