Join Couchsurfing to see Marine’s full profile. It’s free!
Some say I'm a tender person, others say I have a strong temper. Some think I am very discrete, others think I should stop laughing so much and so loud. Some wish I would be less of a mystery, others trust me for being open and generous. Some believe they know me, some know there is no such thing as a set list of words to describe someone. I can't tell how people actually see me. I can't even tell how I see myself. Or I would have to update the info pretty much every day, since every step I make, every person I meet, everything I see and touch, keep changing that perception. That's what makes the day worth getting up for I guess!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I discovered couchsurfing after coming back from one year in Asia (sad that I missed the thing to travel there) thanks to my new flatmates. We hosted many people, who often became our friends. So when I went to Berlin for a month, I decided to try it and surf myself! I had such a great first experience that it became one of the most expected part of the whole traveling plans... when I ever happen to make some!
I have surfed couchs and hosted Csurfers (it unfortunately doesn't appear on my profile since it was through my flatmate's)... It has changed for the best my way of meeting people and was each time very enriching and opening. I guess it helps feeling less of a stranger somewhere and also helps reminding you can be one even at home.
photography, documentary, cinema, drawing and chinese painting, Theater, Kayak, Danse, ... AND listening to music, sharing it, dancing with it, driving with it, walking, singing... (if only I could play an instrument!)
