About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Embodying the light

ABOUT ME

Hello there! I'm a Franco-Portorican dreamer. I grew up mainly in France and studied in Spain and Canada. I lived my best experiences by exploring and discovering new places, new environments and above all new people, often using couchsurfing. I live in a pretty and small appartement, but ideally located and full of light!

PHILOSOPHY

I like this quotation from Lao Tseu: "A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent upon arriving.
A good artist lets his intuition lead him wherever it wants.
A good scientist has freed himself of concepts and keeps his mind open to what is.
Thus the Master is available to all people and doesn't reject anyone. He is ready to use all situations and doesn't waste anything."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing
