About Me


To see the world through my own eyes and break past the stereotypes


Well let's see. I enjoy meeting new faces, going out, learning new languages, dancing with friends on loud music and eating chocolate cake on a rainy day.

I like green stuff, I have my own kitchen garden woot woot!!

Come couchsurf with me and my four roomates! We'll show you around and we'll have a good time :)


Life is like riding a bike, if you don't push forward, you will fall. Aouch!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfing: I wash the dishes and I cook for my cool host

Hosting: I try to be available to show you around and hang out with you. The best I can do is to help you to understand the city and its people.


CS is amazing! I surfed a little bit in Europe and in North America, I always had a good time. Me and my roomates have welcomed many people so far, and 99% of the time, it's very positive. The only minus is when people don't participate and act like the couch is an hotel.


Reading: particularly history and SF. The last books I read were "The Enders game" (Orson Scott Card) and "The Best Village in the World" (Arto Paasilinna). I like going to the cinema, listening good music... But above all: hanging out with friends! In a pub around a beer, outside hiking on a trail, in front of a movie... I also like playing cards and board games like "Tarot", Race for the Galaxy, Neuroshima Ex, Carcassone...

above all: biking on a warm night during the summer! I just love it! :P

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have been to the top of the Gunung Rinjani, a huge volcano in Bali when I was 12.
I gave guided tours on a battlefield in America for a year, trying to restore the role my ancestors played in the American Revolution. Rochambeau, La Fayette, Choisy, Vergennes!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I am usually called by my friends to fix their tv or their computer. I like to speak about history and geography, and I'm interested to hear about the news and feelings from all around the world. I'm also always happy to share a recipe and to cook for my friends or to learn a new recipe. I want to improve my spanish!!
