About Me


Carpe diem folks !


Traveling is my way of life and I'm trying to find any way I can to do it all the time. I'm currently studying anthropology and art history/archaeology and learning as many languages as I can. I've already worked in a cultural center in Bosnia for a year and really enjoyed it. I also spent several month working in Tunisia and whole year studying in New York. I spent the last two years moving between Ireland and Austria, trying to finish my Master.
I'm an easy-going person, very open-minded (thank you anthropology !) and I love meeting people from all around the world. I'm quite comfortable with everybody. I love debating and have a fiery temper. I prefer skipping small talks and going straight to the point. I love people with a lot of conversation (quiet people are okay too if they have good vibes!) and really enjoy stories of any kind : life stories, travel stories, jokes, fairy tales...
And of course, I love food unconditionally (I'm French after all...) : I love cooking it, eating it, looking at it and discussing it !


Always look on the bright side I guess.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like hosting people and I wish I could do it more often but my current flat and especially my constant travelling these last few years have been a real obstacle but I try to compensate by being hosted instead and I'd like to thank in advance everyone who's gonna help me at some point. You're the best, folks !
Best way to travel ever !


A lot of experience all around the globe, none negative !

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seeing the sunrise on the Himalayas, walking barefoot across the Red Square in Moscow, climbing through the jungle of Cat Ba Island in Vietnam, eating at the floating markets of Bangkok, sleeping in a theater in Ouagadougou, riding an elephant in Cambodia, feeding a baby gator in Louisiana, climbing up a volcano in Korea, living through a hurricane in New York ... Life is so good !
