About Me


to survive with all the 'unbearable lightness of being' !

I appreciate every creative idea from anyone who can light up my day! Soon, I know, I will abandon all my academic ideals and move to a deserted island without any Apple product!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used to attend some CS meetings with friends who were already active surfer... Finally, I achieved to move my ass and get into this universe myself!


Dance, anything Latin and Oriental! Every sport away from the snow! Sailing and swimming... Getting better in Yoga, self-improvement in cooking and debating.
