FOR THE BEGINNERS : please read this article before sending a requst :
That's the plan, rule the world, you and me, anyday.
Feel free to contact me if you want someone to show you Paris!
It happens that since my birth I've been travalling while never spending more than a few years in one place. For the last years I live, study and now work in Paris. Possibly it is not the final destination of my life, even though I'd love to return here in the end.
I have various interests, for exemple, japanese culture and language, celtic music and danse, chinese tea-culture, foreign languages in general, photography, playing musical instruments and other (just ask ^^). I am an instagram addict and spend a lot of time taking photos. I love mythologie and unexpectedly - maths ^_^ And I can share with you lots of interesting facts and story about science, students and education. I also was a teacher of maths for a couple of years in Russia and in France.
Life is a growth, progress, developpement, changing. We live to communicate and exchange our expiriences. Everyone is interesting in his own way. Most of the time this way is worth to be found.
« Être Valentinois c'est être natif de Valence, Dracénois de Draguignan, Briochin de Saint-Brieuc... Mais être Parisien ce n'est pas être né à Paris : c'est y renaître ; et ce n'est pas non plus y être, c'est en être ; et ce n'est pas non plus y vivre, c'est en vivre... Car on en vit, et on en meurt. Être de Paris ce n'est pas y avoir vu le jour ; c'est y voir clair. On n'est pas de Paris comme on est de Clermont mais on est de Paris comme on serait d'un cirque. On est élu Parisien, élu à vie. C'est une dignité. C'est une charge aussi : on doit être à ses ordres, à sa dévotion quand Paris vous a fait l'honneur de vous admettre. Aimer Paris rend orgueilleux, car il vous devient à ce point nécessaire qu'on arrive à croire qu'on peut lui être utile. »
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Surfing, hosting and participating in communities. I'm also happy to meet people for a coffee/drink and show them Paris, some of my favourite places in this huge city.
I work quite a lot, but if ever I cannot spend some time with you, I'll try to give you some advices where to go and what to see.
After a long time, I can host again (ask me), but please, no more then 1 person, my flat is too small to host more then one guest).
I love to meet people and show them my beloved hidden corners of Paris. If you visit this city with me, probably I'll try to tell you as much random facts about it as I can :)
Surfing is a good way to meet extraordinary people.
Wide. I like to discover new things and new people. I believe that every human is a whole Universe. Couchsurfing is a great university which teachs us to expore these Universes.
I can tell that I love music and can't live without it. I can share with you the best of french musicals: Starmania, Notre-Dame de Paris, Roméo et Juliette, Les Demoiselles de Rochefort, Les 10 commandements, les Enfants du Soleil etc. etc. Same for the Broadway and off-Broadway musicals. Surely that's a tiny part of the music in my playlist. Share your music with me.
I'm fond of singing and guitar playing (but it's always my friends playing; I can only listen). Often I have my recorder (kind of a flute) with me.
I'm trying to be a decent photographer, always looking for a inspiring things. Take a look at my instagram :
Feel free to leave some comments :)
Music, Movies, and Books
My favorite book is "Surely you're joking Mr. Feynmann" by Richard Feynmann. It's lively, funny and very interesting biography of a great man.
Music... Really lots of genres. Beatles, Nightwish, Queen, Céline Dion - it's only several examples of music in my playlist. I'm listening to different french, russian, chinese and japanese music, but also american, english, spanish, finnish and so on.
I love beautiful voices like the one of Bruno Pelletier or Celine Dion. I love calm music like the songs of Ally Kerr (irish singer). I love the energy of Franz Ferdinand and tenderness of Roxette. I love Adele and Mika. Songs of Pablo Alborán make me want to learn Spanish ^^
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One of the most amazing things I've seen in my life was the union meeting of two girl, a French and an American, adopted separately in Korea just after their birth. They are twins who didn't know of the existence of each other till the French one found the American one in a Youtube video. It sounds like a fairy tail to me, but it's a true story. Take some time to read about it:
They have also written a book :
And their documentary film is about to be finished.
The most amazing thing I've ever done... I can't choose. When I think about it, I see different people that I met through my life. It's just as the Doctor always say : You, people, are amazing.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you maths. Easily =) Haha, nobody cares, I'm well aware :)
I can show you some basics of a chinese tea ceremony (but you should tell my to take my instruments and tea for it).
As far as I take a lot of photos, I can give some technical advices, especially if you have a reflex camera. Or even take you for a shooting in Paris.
