Join Couchsurfing to see Aurore’s full profile. It’s free!
I've just become an English teacher in Parentis, so I'm going to move everywhere in France.
I love meeting people and chatting (and sometimes -often- what I say does not make sense), and discovering new places.
I grew up in Bordeaux so I know the place fairly well and I lived in Wales during roughly two years; having been able to experience that was great, and I'd love to have more of that!
My guideline is that life is so much better when enjoyed with others.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I have decided to suscribe to couchsurfing as I want to start travelling again and take part in couchsurfing experiences.
But it is the kind of things which, I believe, is nice when it is reciprocal, when you take but when you also give.
So I'd love to welcome people to my small place in Biscarrosse -also, I have extra beds, so it would be a shame if they remained unused during the whole year.
And because I think that good things are better when shared with others, I'd like to offer what I can offer.
Plenty of things!
To begin with, outdoor activities: bodyboarding all year long, going out for walks, on the beach, in the woods, jogging, cycling, horse-riding, diving.....I'm pretty keen for everything you can do outside -and which is not suicidal.
But I also love watching movies (special mention to the Cohen bros, Scorcese, and Terry Gilliam), listening to music (from electro music to rock'n'roll), reading books now and again, chilling outside, going out with friends, enjoying food, having a tea or a beer .... The list is long.

Oh, and becoming a teacher.
