About Me

CURRENT MISSION

That's the plan, rule the world, you and me, anyday.

ABOUT ME

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 8 years in one place. I've changed twice my country of residence and many times my adresse. For the last years I live, study and now work in Paris. Possibly it's 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'm instagram addict and spend lots of time taking photos. I love psychologie, 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 two years in Russia and for five years in France.

PHILOSOPHY

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. »
Sacha Guitry

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, mostly the places I prefer 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.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Great!
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).

Also I love to meet people to show them my beloved hidden places in Paris.

Surfing is a good way to meet extraordinary people.

Interests

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. Surely that's a tiny part of the music in my playlist. Want to know more? Just ask! 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 become a photographer, but my photos are far from being perfect yet. You can take a look at my instagram :

Feel free to leave some comments :)

Music, Movies & 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 russian, french, chinese and japanese music, but also american, english, 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. And many many others.

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 :
http://www.amazon.com/Separated-Birth-Story-Sisters-Reunited/dp/0399168168
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 during 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.
If you're interested in Russian language - there is no probleme about it.
