We -LOVE- to Travel. My wife and I met originally in the USA, where I lived for over 16 years. For the last five years we have been traveling the world and staying in local people's homes. After the US, we lived in London for just over three years, where we settled temporarily and to played the Host role, while we explored Europe from top to bottom!

We are now, and for a short while, living in Akumal, Mexico, which is between Playa del Carmen and Tulum.

We have plenty of travel stories ... like the time we cycled from Norway to Spain (yeah, the whole continent) or when we crashed a three day long wedding in Bali. Or when we dived Shark Island in Thailand. We hiked for 9 hours to see a volcano erupting and got lost in the lava field and have driven a motorcycle in the crazy traffic of Vietnam ! As well as moved to Rome for a month to drink wine and eat pizza :)

In all these places, it was local people who allowed us to full experience a place. We now try to do the same for guests.


We are a young, active couple. We have been together for more than eleven years and we love to have fun and travel. We believe in what we call 'Real Travel', and we have been lucky enough to be able to visit over 30 countries for extended periods, spend time, eat and drink (and many times party) with locals. We are very health conscious and we do our best to eat well, and stay active: Yoga, jogging, etc. We have people we consider friends all over the world and we do what we can to meet more friends when possible.

We love to host people from abroad are very excited at the possibilities this brings!

In the time we already have hosted, we have met incredible people and made great friends, both as hosts as well as guests, it at least three continents.
