About Me

Just arrived with my bf in Hong Kong (as of January 2017) to live for 1-2 years! We are currently flat-hunting and have everything to discover! So I'm more than happy to meet locals/expats that live here and/but also travellers that are here for a few hours/days or else!

I'm easy going, open-minded and I like to visit, travel, eat and drink! I love to extend my horizons and to experience the wonder of the unknown. I love to hang out, generally outside, I love walking and taking pictures and meeting new people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfin' since 2008 and loving it :) it's the best way to travel, meeting awesome people and locals!

Interests

I've decided to not update (yet!!!) what I wrote in 2008, so that gives you a good idea of what my 18-years-old-self was like ;) ! I grew up a bit since then (but maybe not sooo much ahah) but it can never be as worst... can it?

-------
I love random roadtrips, walking, snowboarding, biking, taking pictures, music and concerts (festivals!), hiking, camping, and discover new food and drinks.
