About Me


No one can be summed up in just a few lines but I'd say that right now I m trying to figure out the next step which isn't the easiest thing to do. I try to go with the flow and let things happen the way they are meant to. I enjoy having no mortgage to pay back, no debts, no husband, no kids, no house, no dog and no special commitment at the moment because it leaves me plenty of time to figure out what I really want to do with myself, where and who with.


It changes everyday according to the situation I'm in I guess....

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now, I live in Turkey, Istanbul where I teach French. I live in a cosy one bedroom apartment and have a sofa bed for visitors!


I was housed for a week by a very cool guy from Greece who let me stay at his place for a whole week when he was actually away.


Just like anyone else, I enjoy meeting people and hearing about their life story. It makes me realise possibilities are endless. I listen to a lot of music, I have recently discovered diving and I absolutely love it, I'm fascinated by how different and diverse cultures are, finally I'm a poor photographer but I really enjoy taking pictures of things that have meaning to me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Skydiving in New Zealand!

Teach, Learn, Share

I teach French, I could help with that.....other than that I don't have many skills I'm afraid...

Learning is an ongoing process and I try to make the most of each moment to get something out of it, a lesson, a thought, an idea...anything really.

I would like to learn how to read music sheets, would love to know how to play an instrument, learn how to swim properly, learn spanish, german and korean.
