About Me


meeting new people and making new friends !


Do not do unto others what you would not have them do unto you!

Give to everyone who asks from you and from one who takes away your things, don't ask for them back!

Friendship doubles your joys and divides your sorrows!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Am new at CS and for the moment I don't have a couch available but whenever I have the time I would love to show people around in my town !


Things I like :

smiling people, the sun on my face, architecture, roses, making new friends, decorating homes,champagne and strawberries, animals, the sea, singing,angels, swimming in the rain, hot chocolate with whipped cream, cooking with and for friends, hugging, glass of wine in good company, honesty, candlelight, fine arts, walking barefoot on the beach feeling the sand between your toes, theater, staying in bed when outside it is raining really hard, the moon, different cultures, chocolats, trust, forests, churches, music, books, watching a falling star so I can make a wish, and so much more ..... magic

One of my favorite poems from Berthold Brecht :

I do not want to think about whether it's good.
I do not want to know whether he loves me.
I want to go with whom I love.
