About Me


To meet wonderful people around the world hosting and traveling


We are a married couple. We enjoy travel and opening our home to others. We have friends over for dinner and cook outs either in our back yard or a nearby park. We have had friends, family, and CSers stay over on our couch.


Immerse yourself in life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We have hosted over 60 times and surfed on 7 trips to Canada, Ireland/UK, France/Spain/Portugal, Israel/Jordan, India, and the US well as few other times for conferences. We have also met up with a other CSers while traveling and in the Philadelphia area.


One of us couch surfed Hawaii for half a year. The other has stayed on friends couches. We have enjoyed trips to Montreal, Ireland, and the U.K. through couch surfing. A wonderful way to travel and meet new people.
