We're a fun-loving couple in our thirties - Chris is from London and is a biologist at UC Berkeley. Kim is from Canada and is an Epidemiologist with the state of California. We love getting outdoors - climbing, hiking, bike riding, and enjoying the many colorful street festivals around the San Francisco Bay area. We're happy to share our car, bicycles, camping gear, etc.
