About Me

In Russia / Moscow now
Wanting to explore the city & visit Kazan, Grozny and other cities in Caucasus


I am originally from Paris, and got back to my city after some years living in Turkey and travelling in the region!:)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I don't use Couchsurfing forcibly to surf by someone at all costs, but rather to meet people during trips, who I will enjoy discussing and spending time with, and most of the time, it seems reciprocal.

A very frequent traveller, and with a busy professional schedule, I can only host occasionally. Always glad to help when I can.
