ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Marie.

I've had the hardest time trying to capture my essence and put it here in a few comprehensible words. Who am I? It's quite a task to answer that question. I guess the best way to get to know me is to sit down and have a nice warm cup of tea.

PHILOSOPHY

"Nothing lasts forever.
No one lives forever.
Keep that in mind, and love."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We have hosted several couchsurfers at the collective household I live in here in Montréal and I have couchsurfed myself a few times. I love the meet-ups and have had nothing but positive experiences through Couchsurfing.

Interests

Like most people on this site, I love a good adventure every now and then!

I'm passionate about all sorts of music from all sorts of places. I've been playing the harp for a little over two years now and have fallen madly in love with the instrument. I enjoy learning new languages (conjugating Russian verbs? so much fun!) and meeting a wide variety of people.

I enjoy cooking, a good conversation, watching little kids discover things for the first time, the feeling of standing at the end of the sea and having the waves lap up against your toes, saying "hello!" to animals in pastures. (Goats <3)
