About Me


Plant my roots somewhere and grow my dreamed life


one thing about me is that I'm very bad at self description.. but just to give you an idea let's say that I am one version of those human beings on the planet earth !
..even if sometimes I wish to be a bird, flying from a world to another, or a tree growing peacefully,
or maybe a loved fat cat lying all day in the grass, or a very long giraffe eating the best with the head in the sky..? imagine a mix : a flying tree with spotted skin purring while flying around love ?
and you?? :)

Pardon pour les anglais speakers mais j'ai la flem je traduirai plus tard cette partie éditée :
Après un long temps de voyages, wwoof, ptits boulots... j'ai fini par me décider un projet qui ressemble bien à l'idée-al que je me fais de la vie (youpii:)). Après une formation agricole voilà que je m'essaye à devenir paysanne boulangère, j'aimerais m'associer à d'autres artisans et développer un projet de vie collectif.


"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


I've hosted a lot more than Ive been, because 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..raaaa!
So I apologize in advance if I'm sending you a last minute request :]

If you are searching for a place to stay do not hesitate to ask, unless you describe yourself as a psychopath that would be a yes if I can!


I'm quite fascinated by the diversity on earth (nature, animals and human being, complexe as they are..) which is maybe why I love traveling and learn from different ways of living, thinking, expressing...
Life is a chance to experiment, we must try to be the one we want.

I'm a very calm person enjoying time in simple ways.
walks,musics, movies, hanging out with friends, sharing good food, good drink..any good is good :)
and it's even more tasty when it's shared with other people, so come!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One good memory is my roadtrip in Tasmania, with 6 crasy taiwaneses and our very small rented 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!) ..once arrived we shared a tiny plate of warm seafood inside our van..just like starving raptors ! thanks to the food truck and to my friends, the best meal ever! :D

Teach, Learn, Share
