About Me

CURRENT MISSION

enjoy life, meet people, discover countries !

ABOUT ME

I used to work past year in an institute specilized in using satellite imagery. To cut a long story short, I was a researcher on a European project of global land cover cartography.

For the moment I'm about to start a long term journey around Africa, trying to reach Madagascar from Europe without taking any planes. That means a lot of hitchiking, boat hitchiking and common transportation !

PHILOSOPHY

My philosophy ? Don't waste your time or time will waste you ! Be the change that you want to see in the world...I think these two sentences resume how I want to live my life

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

If I'm there, I'm glad to welcome couch surfers, give them the tips to survive in my city or just discuss around a beer (yes, I'm a real Belgian !)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I did it in France and Morocco. that was amazing !! Can't wait to do that again !

I've already host people, that was also a great experience...Couch surfers, you are most welcom !

Interests

I'm a very curious girl so basically, I'm will be interested in many subjects but my favourites are the environment and nature, movies (I'm a cinemaniac), books, street arts, travels and learn new languages.

Music, Movies & Books

I'm fond of reading, I read almost everything I find (except romance). I like to watch series and movies too (science fiction are my favorites). It's difficult to name one book or movie that is THE movie/book of your life! For the moment I'm really into the Game of Throne books (much better than the TV show!)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Last year I went from Brussel to Kinshasa hitchiking, without taking any planes. That was amazing. Really you should try !

Teach, Learn, Share

I always want to learn and improve langages or if u have any advice on traveling... If anyone around here is a master in bouddhism, I'm interested too !

Otherwise I'm quite informed on the environmental issues, or somethings more technical like teledetection (playing with satelites images !) but does it really interest somebody? ;). I can also advice on which beer to drink

Countries I've Visited

Benin, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tunisia, Turkey, Virgin Islands, British

Countries I've Lived In

Belgium, Morocco
