About Me


Be useful in a changing world


After 2 years in Boston, Pierre-Marie and I came back to France and are now discovering the new place where we settled down 4 years ago: Vienne (not in Austria but the French Vienne!). And it has so far been pretty lovely! A 2 year old little boy has enlarged our family but we still do a lot of biking, hiking and visiting of Roman ruins, and have now our habits on one of the biggest market in France!
We are both really interested in environmental matters and can't imagine living our lives without taking the environment into account. This way of life leads to many decisions, either on our professional choices than on personal hobbies: sustainable agriculture, healthy food, outdoor sports (hiking, skiing,...)are among our favorite activities.


Try to be of use in this changing world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


CS is a wonderful way to meet some new friends and share good moments in an international community.
CS makes it really more interesting to travel and gives the opportunity of discovering new places from the inside.


When we arrived in Boston, we spent one week by couchsurfers while visiting apartments. The couch-surfers we met were really friendly and gave us many advice and good adresses which helped us a lot.
It won't have been as easy without them.
We now consider surfing couches each time we are moving around, making the trip always richer!
