About Me

I have been living in Paris since 2015 in the 11th arrondissement.

During my studies, I lived in several cities in France and also in Edinburgh in Scotland for 1 year between 2012 and 2013.

I've been working as a design engineer in the energy and environmental efficiency of buildings for 4 years.

I'm very interested in anything to do with the environment and ecology.

I'm taking a 6-month sabbatical in 2024 and I plan to discover Canada (3 months), Japan and Vietnam (3 monthts).

I love trains and have already booked my trip between Toronto and Vancouver!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am preparing my trip to Canada for 3 months from April to July 2024 and I would like to meet Canadians with the aim of making enriching encounters and getting to know Canadians from East to West.

For the moment I have booked a train "Le Canadien" from Toronto to Vancouver on 1st May 2024 and I am open to meetings and opportunities for the rest of my trip to Canada.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I recently travelled to Istanbul by train from Paris via Vienna, Budapest and Bucharest! Including several more or less comfortable night trains :)

It was a great adventure and I met a lot of people along the way <3

Teach, Learn, Share
