About Me


Wind in my hair, I want to feel part of everywhere.


I'm 24, french, born optimistic and hungry of knowing something new. In 2009, I've decided to move to Canada to learn another way of living, another culture, and of course another language. I am really open-minded and I do believe that we are not travelling for changing in a geographical way but in an ideological one. This is a quick description but a non-restrictive one. Feel free to ask anything!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I don't have my own place yet but I can offer you a bed or a couch if you're asking at the right time. Plus, I do want to share everything I can. And I really think the best way to do that is meeting people from different country, culture and education. Exchange is the key.


I hosted two Canadian friends in France during this summer and realized this is the best way to discover a new place but also to have a new look about my own place.
I used some really interesting and nice couches in Québec city and Vancouver!
