About Me


In life you get what you give...


I am a simple and open-minded person, curious about smart people and plenty of things.
I grew up in a peaceful green environment in Southern France, however I also love to explore and live in chaotic megacities.
I have lived in 6 countries, where I worked as a teacher. This rewarding experience has allowed me to meet plenty of people, study languages, social codes. I would be glad to share my experience about that. I am currently based in Naples, Italy.


Do not plan too much your life. Be a free thinker and honest to yourself.
Small minds discuss people, average minds discuss events, great minds discuss ideas..

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am a part time follower of the community
as long as some events draw my attention,like language swaps, excursions, cultural meetings.
I just hang out with people who share something.
(Meetings for loud pub crawling are not anymore my cup of tea)
