About Me


Looking for my mission in life


I'm a girl who like traveling, but without beeing a "tourist". I like to have time to see places, but I prefer to meet people, to speak, to learn languages, new cooking, new way of life... But I'm quite independent, I don't need to be entertained... and I don't like to have to entertain people...


I think traveling is the best way to open the mind. If doing properly: meeting new people! For me it has no sense to travel just to see famous places and taking pictures...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Before knowing CS, I traveled nearly allways going to friends houses, but my personal network was not very extended... that's why I use now CS!!!


I love meeting people, speaking and mixing languages, traveling and have fun... I love to discover countries with the people who lives there.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like music, almost all sorts of music. I like the movies without too much blood, and kiled people, and I hate bad suspens...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I strated to travel abroad alone at 12 year-old. I went to London with a British "fille au pair" who spent 3 months at home. I didn't speak English, she knew little of French, but she brought me in London city every day for 6 weeks. I don't know if it's amazing, but it was the first story I had in mind.
