About Me

ABOUT ME

I am an aspiring art conservator from Québec, Québec. I like to learn from meeting new people and going new places.
If not particularly outgoing, I'm definitely easygoing and I get along with people in general.

(Je suis une future restauratrice d'objets culturels de Québec, Québec. J'ai des intérêts variés, j'aime rencontrer de nouvelles personnes et voir de nouveaux endroits (et en apprendre toujours plus grâce aux gens et aux places que je visite).
Si je ne suis pas particulièrement extravertie, je suis facile à vivre et je m'entends bien avec les gens.)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've surfed in Germany, Austria, Romania, Bulgaria and France, and I hosted in Montreal during my undergrad.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far, so good!

Interests

I have always loved visual arts and literature. I always have my camera and my sketchbook when travelling. And a few books as well. I love museums and libraries.
I also love the outdoors and the natural world. I love to run, hike, and trek. I used to whine when my parents made me and my siblings hike mountains while travelling as kids, but it definitely grew on me.
Those are long-term commitments, but, truth be said, I am interested in countless things and the list is ever-changing. In the last months, amongst other things, I tried to grow a bonsai (but started from a oak seed and it didn't prove to be successful), I have started to write/illustrate a book, I started to learn German, discovered an interest in cooking (and in outdoors markets)...

(J’ai toujours aimé les arts visuels et la littérature. J’ai toujours ma caméra et mon cahier à dessin avec moi quand je voyage, en plus de quelques livres. J’aime les musées et les bibliothèques et les librairies.
J’aime le plein air. J’aime courir, faire de la marche en nature ou de la randonnée.
Ce sont quelques-uns de mes intérêts plus stables, mais je suis en fait le genre de personne qui se passionne d’un rien, je suis intéressée par un grand nombre de choses et la liste est toujours en évolution! Dans les derniers mois, j’ai essayé de faire pousser un bonsaï (un échec), j’ai commencé à apprendre l’allemand, me suis découvert un intérêt pour la cuisine (et les marchés)… )
