About Me


Live as a world citizen, respect and discover other cultures & people, share good time with friends


We enjoy life and communication, spend time with our friends.
We love good food, sometimes good wine, hike along the seashore and in the mountains, travel, and interested in cultural life,art craft,photography, psychology , spirituality.

BUT ! We are different and independent from each other - you'll discover us when we meet, at our or your place !


Enjoy life, enjoy learning, enjoy discovering, enjoy creating (Claire : photography, drawing, Catherine : mosaics, we both sing in choirs).
Be and stay open-minded to others & what's happening in the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We open our home to travellers from all over the world. We have a guest room, and a nice big table ! We also had the opportunity to be hosted by CS pleople. Really good moments!


We welcomed a few hosts from all over the world (Finland, France,Germany ,Turquie ,Canada, U S of America, China, Australia...). A few years ago, we welcomed a young Norwegian student during week-ends. Then a young Japanese exchange student for a whole year, full time. Then a marvelous UNFORGETABLE German, Erasmus student in Philosophy and Economy rented one of our rooms, sharing our kitchen also during a whole year. Then a Japanese student lived with us for a few months. We had three wonderful CS experiences in Istanbul : amazing town, so nice Turkish hospitality... One of our best friends in Normandy is a ceramic English artist: Frances Doherty, that we met on CS website. Henry and her are a fabulous couple sharing their life between Brighton and the area of Dieppe. We love them !
