About Me


I don't accept copypaste and impersonnal requests.

I may be a bit "old school" but I expect people to make an effort when they're looking for a host. I mean, at least using my name and giving me an hint that shows they've read my description on the profile.

These last years have been really bad for couchsurfing in terms of good manners and behaviours. From my point of view (and experience), newcomers are usually young people with no manners, that believe they can get a free space to crush in without having to share anything. They barely say "hello hi", then go to the bedroom or go out, without even thinking that it would be nice at least to program a little time with theirs guests, at least just to share a meal all together...

For that reason only, I now only host a few people, because I take time to read the request before accepting what sounds like a bad experiment.

Sorry for that long long complain, but now let's talk about positive things, yeayyy! :)

I love traveling abroad and meeting new people, that's the reason why I'm part of that community! The truth is, I don't really have a lot of time because of my passion-job but I can always make exceptions when I meet someone who I really appreciate. My schedules are a bit chaotic, as a musician and singer, but everything is possible, depending on the month, or the day, just ask me! :)

My philosophy: "Don't do to others what you don't want others do to you".
This means a LOT to me, especially when I'm hosting..! ;)

So I'm living with my boyfriend, who also works as a musician, same schedules, same crazy life! :)
He also teach the gypsy guitar to kids and adult, he's always looking for people to share music with!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Weekly meetings, when I can! I also try to help people to find their way when coming to my country, I know how difficult it is when you don't know how it works.


I hosted a few people, and had really good times.

If I can give you an advice: my couch is not a hostel so please, don't come just because it was the 1st profile that came up, but because you feel like meeting us :)

I had crazy experiences traveling also, meeting people all over the world is the best experience ever!!


Music of course! I play guitar and sing, I do appreciate musicians of all countries!

I like every kind of art (especially drama) and learning new langages. I'm curious about EVERYTHING, I like to learn something about jobs, countries, knowledge I have no clue about!

Music, Movies & Books

My favourite bands/singer/musician:
The Gossip, Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Janis Joplin, The Cranberries...
