About Me

CURRENT MISSION

travel as much as I can!!

ABOUT ME

Half French half Norwegian - Forwegian as some would say, I grew up in two different places, my home town, the busy capital of Paris and a lovely and quiet farm in Vikersund, Norway. I guess it made me aware of how diverse the world could be very young, as I took my first airplane at 3 months old and never stopped since then. I haven't had a chance to travel much yet, because I got stuck with my studies and probably because of my parents' expectations of me being a bright student, who would get a decent job as early as possible, I decided to take a year off, possibly 3 or 4 to discover the world, starting by my dream destination Australia...

PHILOSOPHY

carpe diem! I guess...forget about the annoying and stupid people and enjoy life as much as possible, life is not all about working and earning money for god's sake! I hate money!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far I only have one couchsurfing experience, though it was not through this website. Actually, it is quite a funny story... Recently with my friend Ann-Kathrin we went traveling around New Zealand, keen on seeing the village of hobbits "Hobbiton" or the shire, setting of the Lord of the Rings, we hopped off in Matamata, small town... very small town! no backpackers, no hostels, no nothing... the only cheap accommodation we could find, did not pick up he phone *sigh*. So we decided to ask people around if they could let us couchsurf...not an easy task! but we manage to find a kind soul in the end!

Interests

so many things well first and foremost traveling I guess! so far I've done Norway, Denmark, Spain, England, a bit of Australia (Sydney, Melbourne - more to come) and a major party of New Zealand. baby traveller indeed, so much to see...My second pick would be cinema - loads of movie even though Tim Burton's movies are by far my favorite, Clint Eastwood is also very dear to me! Music! rock, metal, heavy metal, hard rock you name it! the used, breaking benjamin, my chemical romance, paramore, the strokes, atreyu.. and Sport (boxing, windsurfing, badminton, tennis, swimming,...)
