About Me


Survive 'till I come back in Europe haha! And see the most I can 'till this time arrive?


Let's make it quick. I'm travelling in Australia since 6 months, kind of a typical whv-style but still trying to avoid the stereotyp of it. Actually in this day, I'm full in it, after a 2 months trip Melbourne-AD-AS-Darwin-Cairns-Brisbane, I'm kind of broke and need a bit of time to get a job and settle a bit in the area. I still have a bit of money but would prefer to spend it in shared food than in a evilish backpackers. hm there's a FEW pictures here way more on facebook if you're interested! : )


See the more I can, meet as many different people I can and trying to sort any meaning in all this mess.

Or maybe as a Monty Python addicted "always look on the bright side of life"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I will be looking for a job, so not in the house long time in days. Back in it, I'm a not such a bad cook and very able to help in any kind of daily cleaning or whatever. I guess my conversation is not as bad as you can think reading this profile. I listen a lot of music(have a lot to share), have seen a lot of movies and read a lot of books, I can talk about photography for ages if anyone is keen.


Unfortunat'ly not any yet but lot of my friends had many experiences and I do know things not to do (stay to long, being messy/unfriendly etc)


photography, travel, discovering new people, movies, music, reading, learning ukulele stuf, partying when my bank account isn't taking a leak, probably way more but well, there's too many questions to answer here...
