About Me


explore, learn, love, laugh, share (but i dont like the word mission...all for spontaneity and distraction)


Likes: interesting conversation, questioning, traveling, new experiences, becoming sidetracked, tea, a good bottle of wine, bad jokes, beautiful places, the 'arts' (movies/cinema, art/galleries, concerts, plays, etc.), laughing, creativity

Dislikes: Close mindedness, romantic comedies


Never judge.

Every experience has something to teach you.

Je suis tout ça. Je suis lui et lui, mais lui et lui aussi, et puis lui, lui je ne veux pas décevoir. Je suis elle, et elle aussi. Je suis français, espagnol, anglais, danois. Je suis pas un, mais plusieurs. Je suis comme europe, toute ça. Je suis un vrai bordel.

Time weighs down on you like an old, ambiguous dream. You keep moving, trying to slip through it. But even if you go to the ends of the earth, you wont be able to escape it. Still, you have to go there--to the edge

--Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


All those years in university taught me much less than the people i've met traveling


smiling where ever you are... dont worry the worst of problems seem to be the best laughs later

and traveling where ever the wind blows...
because "the answer my friend is blowing in the wind..."
