Our First CouchSurfers

Our very first CouchSurfers arrived safely yesterday :)

Jason & Corina are a couple from Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada, who are on day 32 of a one year journey around the world. They hope to relax from their years of school and work while enjoying an experience of a lifetime. They are traveling throughout Europe, Asia and South America during their 365 day travel odyssey.

Before their arrival in Germany, Jason & Corina visited Vancouver - Canada, NYC - US, London, York, Edinburgh & Belfast - UK.

Their overall itinerary, to name but a few, includes the following locations: Canada, US, England, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Netherlands, France, Spain, Morocco, Italy, Hungary, Greece, Egypt, Croatia, Turkey, UAE, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Japan, Brazil, Chile & Peru.

- What a great couple

Upon their arrival at their CouchSurfing host, Jason made a lovely meal - A 'pasta with tomato & spinach' creation - mmm very tasty! It's a shame that Jason & Corina are not around for a little longer - we could get used to their culinary delights.

Mark welcomed Jason & Corina with a surprise greeting from BOB FM 99.9, which is one of the local radio stations in their hometown of Winnipeg, Canada - 4295 miles away!

On their last evening with us, we ventured out with Jason, Corina and their flat nephew & nieces (Petroffs/Penners) to a quaint Vegan eatery (yoyo) in Berlin and had a great night out - the food was very tasty - Andrea enjoyed a cheese & spinach burger with chips and salad while Mark was mesmerized by a seitan cheese burger with chips and salad.

After two days of hosting Jason & Corina we are very sorry to see them leave and hope that we will see them again in Germany, the UK or Canada - they were both great to get along with.

We wish Jason & Corina lots of happiness, wonderful experiences and all the best for their remaining 11 months round the world journey.
