About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Manage to conciliate studying and traveling.

ABOUT ME

I am a calm, though outgoing person. I'm pretty optimistic and joyful in general. Chances are you'll never see me without a smile on my face. I'm very curious and I kind of hope I'm smart. I like to meet new people and learn from them.

I'm currently a grad student (doing a Masters degree) in French Literature and I hope I'll be a teacher someday. When I'm not reading books, I like to do rock climbing, dance Rockabilly Jive, taste microbrewery beers, watch movies and hang out with friends. And obviously, I love traveling!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have both couchsurfed and hosted. I especially like when my host has time to show me around his city and try to do the same with the couchsurfers I host (when my schedule allows it).

Interests

Reading, drinking good beer, brewing decent beer, dancing Rockabilly Jive, climbing, playing board games, wandering around town (Montréal is an amazing city!), drinking tea and coffee, being out in the woods or on the roads, meeting new people, learning stuff...

I especially like to talk and learn stuff about: sociology, anthropology, culture, linguistics, feminism... basically anything that concerns the way human beings live together.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: All movies written by Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich, Adaptation...), I'm Not There, Into the Wild, Lost in Translation, Where the Wild Things Are, Across the Universe, (500) Days of Summer, Her... independent, intelligent and original movies in general.

Music: mainly indie, folk and bluegrass (Arcade Fire, Bob Dylan, The Barr Brothers, Les soeurs Boulay, Avec pas d'casque, Karkwa, Old Crow Medecine Show, United Steel Workers of Montreal, Eddie Vedder, Patrick Watson, Leonard Cohen, Douze hommes rapaillés, Tracy Chapman...)

Books: Quebec novels, road novels and especially Quebec road novels (which is my thesis' subject)... Otherwise, mostly French/English/American novels (which would be too long to list) and Quebec graphic novels.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Pretty much all my travels were amazing experiences, but especially:
- international cooperation internship in Nicaragua for 2 months, were I helped building a playground and lived with an amazing family
- hitchhiking from Vancouver to Whitehorse (2500 km)
- cycling around Ireland for a month
- spending a semester abroad in France (and traveling around Europe on weekends and Holidays)

Teach, Learn, Share

I especially like to share travel anecdotes. If you have any funny/special travel stories, I will be really glad to hear them. I also like to learn historical or cultural facts about the places I visit, and share trivia facts about my own city.

Besides that, I can teach you a lot about beer, and I'd like to know more about wine and architecture. But, being a really curious person, almost anything you would want to teach me would be appreciated!
