About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Have stamps on every page of my passport

ABOUT ME

I just read something on somebody else's profile that I'm now going to shamelessly steal: I'm an indecisive-but-spontaneous person, which means that decisions horrify me so much that sometimes I just skip the whole process of them and just, you know, go on a trip.

I'm a compulsive curious, I'll pick up any book or subject that has my fancy at the moment, I want to go everywhere, I want to meet everyone and to go to the bottom of everything. And well, maybe it's impossible to do this in a lifetime, but darn it, I'll have tried.

I like slow travel, hitch-hiking, arriving in a place with no plan, getting along. I don't need much to be happy and I don't really like money all that much. Dumpster-diving, recycling, making things are for me all better ways to fill your needs than killing yourself working at a job you hate.

PHILOSOPHY

Mom wisdom: However much you already put, you should always put more onions and garlic.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosted people, loved it, surfed, loved it.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Wonderful! I had a great time backpacking in Europe thanks to Couchsurfing. I remember when I arrived in Berlin too last minute to find a host. I spent two days in a hostel and found that Berlin was a cool city - nothing more. Then I went on to Couchsurfing and, what do you know, Berlin became amazing.

Well I know French, that's for sure. One of the things I really want to do is travel to Africa or Asia and teach French to children. I can also try to teach you a few words if you're interested - enough to make you seem cool at a party.
