About Me


live and be and believe


not good at self description but once a friend said "a kind of peacefull strength" Not sure what that means but I couldnt say better.
I like to see life as a challenge, a curiosity. always happy to experiment new things and learn from others. might be why Im addicted to travels!


"My choice is what I choose to do,
And if I'm causing no harm, it shouldn't bother you.
Your choice is who you choose to be,
And if you're causin' no harm, then you're alright with me. " (B. Harper)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


travelling for the moment


I've hosted a lot more than I have been. ...cause most of the time when I decide to travel it's a last minute plan, coming from nowhere! then I endup in a youth hostel or in the wild forest alone with myslef.. raaaaaa!
So I apologize in advance if I'm sending you a last minute request :]


I would love to learn constantly from differents cultures, way of thinking, expressing..
I love arts but I don't have any specific talent :( I simply let myself be enjoyed by all little pleasures of life ^^.
walk in nature, take pics, listen to music while drinking beers.. this kind of stuff :)

also sensitive about environnement and alternatives projects, I've found the "ecovillage concept" quite interesting. If you are looking for inspiring lifestyles you should check out the world map of this :

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

one of my best memory is my roadtrip in Tasmania, with 6 crasy taiwaneses and our small van.. when we were frozen, hungry,'homeless', nicely exhausted by our day of walk in cold mountains (yes yes I'm talking about happiness here^^). this simple moment: just sharing a little plate of warm seafood, inside our van..just like starving raptors ^^. the best meal ever! :)
