About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Just go with the flow!

ABOUT ME

I was born in Boucherville, a little town very near Montreal from parents who love to travel! They made me and my brother move to Hong Kong for 3 years when we were teenagers and made us travel in many places in China and its surrounding countries! From that moment, I knew my passion was to travel! To discover new cultures, new ways of living and thinking, meeting people, sharing...it's so enriching! I then went through my studies of nursing in Montreal and always kept on travelling as soon as I could during my school breaks! I am now a registered nurse, loving what I do! Always wanted to go work elsewhere after my studies. So I left Canada and worked as a nurse for a year in Lausanne, Switzerland. Then I took advantage of the fact I was in Europe and travelled for 6 months before coming back home: Montreal.
Home did not last long as I left again, after a year. Went to work and travel in Australia for 1 year! It was incredible!

I an now back in Montreal with a nursing job I love!

Can't actually travel for now with the job. I am working alot. So I'm not always available to host surfers...

BUT, when I'm not working, I'm always ready for a drink or to show you around!

Couchsurfing is my way of travelling for the moment :)

PHILOSOPHY

Friendships are the most wonderful thing in the world!
And family is like an anchor through the flow of life!
Don't take your relationships for granted!

Remember yesterday
Dream about tomorrow
But live today

Life begins at the edge of your comfort zone!!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

3 or 4 years ago, one of my friend told me about couchsurfing and encouraged me to try it, knowing how I love to meet new people! This way of travelling attracted my attention right away, and I registered! Since then, I try to use couchsurfing as much as possible when I travel, it's the best way ever to travel and share!!!!

I've couchsurfed in Paris, in Athens, in Sydney and attended a few of the couchsurfing events! Always fun! Made good friends through couchsurfing! I have never hosted and now that i'm settled in Montreal, I am available for it (if I'm not too overwhelmed with the nursing job)
