About Me


Looking forward to returning to normal life !


I love traveling and have always been interested in discovering new people and different cultures. I've been hosting people for more than 10 years.

I ll always give priority to the travelers. It s important for me to give young people the opportunity to travel. It s not always easy for them because traveling is expensive and I m happy to contribute to their discovery of the world.

Please note :

- that I won t answer to any request more than 2 weeks in advance (I noticed that people who confirm their stay a long time in advance are often the ones who never appear )
- I always feel committed when I host people. I m not the kind of person who cancels at the very last minute without any good reason. I expect the same from my couchsurfers. Don t forget that when you do that, you destroy the chances of others to be hosted.
- I expect from you that you contact me the day before your arrival when you have confirmed your stay. . On that day I ll give you my address and explain you how you can reach . I live 3 metro stations from the railway station and city center.
- Don t make any request if you come to Lille because you want to spend your time with friends who can t host you. I expect at least an exchange with my couchsurfers and I m not here just to provide a free couch.


If we want to make this world a better place , I think it's necessary to build bridges between the different people. We can learn a lot from other cultures.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I began hosting people more than years ago , had some great experiences with couchsurfing and met incredible people with very different backgrounds (age, culture, religion, nationality).I learnt a lot from them and we had very good time talking about different topics , exchanging ideas, visiting the city or eating.


Traveling is my favourite hobby but I also like discovering new cultures and meeting different people ,learning languages, reading, going to cinema or theatre, visiting exhibitions, cooking or having a nice dinner with some friends....
I liked all the countries I visited because I think that every country has something to offer.

Music, Movies, and Books

I usually watch a lot of foreign moovies and like reading essays and novels with historical background.I like asian moovies very much.
I also like world music .

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- Getting lost with 4 people (and 2 guides !!!) in the jungle in Thailand as the night was falling and as it was raining very heavily . After 2 hours we found a private house and we settled there to prepare the meal and spend the night . The people were not at home and they didn't come back. If they read this, I hope they will forgive us because we had no other choice.

Teach, Learn, Share

I 'll be happy to to show you around my city if I'm available and I'll do my best to make you discover the french culture . I can also help you if you want to improve your skills in french , because I'm also teaching french to foreigners. I'm sure that I'll also have a lot of questions to ask you about your own country.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook french dishes and show you how to cook them , give some informations about traveling in the countries I visited ...It depends on your own interests !
