About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find a way to recover from leaving Montreal! - thank God Brussels is so lovable!

ABOUT ME

I am a rather tall girl, quite sensical but who loves talking nonsense too sometimes. Some people find me terribly funny... most don't.
I probably couldn't live without the sea, nature and music; but i actually need contact with people just as badly.

PHILOSOPHY

Smile a lot, 'cause it's totally worth it, right?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I participate in CS mostly through CS events in the cities I'm new to, and to find travel buddies while I'm travelling on my own. I've surfed a few couches here an there, and most certainly would want to return the favor.

Interests

Singing, trekking and biking, cooking, sailing. Also, very important: hanging out with friends and talking around a good Belgian beer, that's even better if I happen to be speaking something else than French.

Music, Movies, and Books

Films: Away we go, Les amours imaginaires, Eternal Sunshine of spotless mind, Crazy, Magnolia, Nightmare before Christmas...I LOVE music, pretty much all kinds... (except pure noise)
I love good novels, a few of my favorite authors would be: Patrick O'Brian, Barbara Kingsolver, Jane Austen, Romain Gary, Richard Powers etc

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I swam among (harmless) jellyfishes in Sweden, that was a pretty amazing experience, I found. I sang in the Philarmonie, Berlin which was pretty sick to. I'm very proud of the fact that I once sailed 50 hours straight to Jersey. Also, I ran into Stromae in a café in Prenzlauerberg once, you know, casually :P

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach French and would love to learn new
languages or improve those I know a little bit already.
I can give technical advice in singing, and teach you a lot of Belgian recipes.
I'd love to improve my sewing skills, and learn new exotic recipes.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sri Lanka, United Kingdom, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In

Belgium, Canada, Germany
