About Me

I am an enthusiastic person, curious about people and places.

I repeat to myself: "Don't settle. Open your mind, mouth, eyes and heart, and enjoy."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have met wonderful people through Couchsurfing while travelling and living abroad.

Now, I live in an egg, in north of Paris, close to Montmartre lovely neighborhood. I don't have any couch, though I have room for anyone equipped with a sleeping bag. And I'd happy to have a coffee and show you around.
