About Me


To travel, to discover, to share...


We're a couple, André and Vanessa, who met while we were travelling in New Zealand.
Vanessa is an (Italo)Belgian interpreter, translator and language teacher who travelled and worked in Belgium, the UK, The Netherlands, Spain, New Zealand and Canada.
André is a nice French guy from Brittany who travelled and worked as a chef in France, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Scotland and Canada.
We both are very open-minded, friendly, and love travelling, sharing opinions, discovering new cultures and places. We've just left Canada and we're now settling down in Nantes, France, who knows how long...


We don't live to work but to enjoy. We still work in order to be able to enjoy...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


The couchsurfing project is a very interesting exchange network. We'd like to contribute to the project by sharing the opportunity to surf and host all around the world and increase cultural exchanges.


We had several couchsurfing experiences in New Zealand, Scotland, Canada and the US and all these experiences were more than positive and extremely interesting sometimes. Comfort may vary but we met lots of great interesting people. It's a great global exchange process; what someone offers you can be returned to him or other couchsurfers and the whole experience has been very rewarding.
