About Me


See the world and not to go home before I've seen it all.


I'm a very uncomplicated girl living an uncomplicated life. I left Montreal last October to teach and travel. It was a long over due journey around the world, or rather parts of it, and now I am (for a while) back home and loving it.

I live as intensely and authentically as possible, not a day is boring I tell ya, and I live to learn and grow. I haven't seen it all but i've seen enough and a little travelling break is finally welcome!
Time to give back a bit.


I try to do my best, not make assumptions, not take things too personally and be as clear and honest as I can possibly be. I make mistakes, it's inevitable but I do try to learn and remember the lesson. And move on.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm overwhelmed by such generosity. Shows that there's a lot of good people out there. Looking forward to meeting lots of travelers but I think it's the locals that make a place!


I read, just about anything and I am trying to write down this trip.
I loooooooove scrabble and backgammon, I practice yoga when I can, I walk, hike, bike. I like museums and parks, drinking beer on the balcony. I swing on special occasions, oh and I knit.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Ran away and joined the circus.
Left on a trip around the world and had a great time.

Teach, Learn, Share

Well, I guess i might be able to share good and bad life experiences. I have a good ear and a healthy perspective on life. But I have still a lot to learn.

I can also teach English and French! Or how to play backgammon and to knit socks.
