About Me


Write a book


Laid back, loves meeting people, sharing experiences, concerned about the environment.
Speaks French and English fluently, use to be fluent in German but a bit out of practice now...


"Everyone has in him something divine, something his own, a chance of perfection and strength in however small a sphere which God offers him to take or refuse. The task is to find it, develop it & use it. The chief aim of education should be to help the growing soul to draw out that in itself which is best and make it perfect for a noble use."
Sri Aurobindo

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My housemate has the experience in CS and she introduced me to this new world!


We hosted our 1st couch-surfer on New Year's Eve 2012!


Enjoying life, cooking, singing, acting, gardening, literature, music, spirituality, environmentally concerned.

I am really not interested in all those adds on my Couchsurfing page. What happened to this site? This is horrible!!!

Music, Movies, and Books

Good comedies, French, English, American. Love those comedians like Will Farrell, Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Andy Samberg (SNL), Sacha Baron Cohen, Russell Brand, Mister Bean (Love Mr Bean!), Kirsten Wiig (SNL), Tina Fey (SNL), Amy Poehler (SNL)
Yes you can see that I enjoy the show Saturday Night Live, but also The Daily Show, The Colbert Report (but mostly on Netflix since we decided not to have TV any longer)
I love the Spanish film maker Pedro Almodovar, the Italian actor Roberto Benini
I enjoy provocative movies like Slum-dog Millionaire or My Name is Khan
I like to be moved, surprised or forced to think differently by movies, music or books

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Paragliding in the Alps in July 2011
Taking a midnight swim in Scotland, in the Highlands, on the 1st of January
Hitch-hiking on my own all the way from Valenciennes to Aberdeen, Scotland and back when I was 23
