About Me


To enjoy life through the experiences of people that I've met and that I'll meet all around me, all over the world...


One of the things I can say for sure, is that I'm an optimistic person. I always try to find the good side of things, and even in bad/sad/difficult situations, I enjoy life and forget the dark side of life.

I've studied French literature, theatre and social education and I've worked with kids for 20 years in France, in Spain, in Russia, and in Ukraine.

I like travelling and discovering new landscapes and towns, but overall new people, their traditions, their languages...
I love languages, started to learn many, forgot some of them, currently speaking six. Leaving as an expat in Moscow for 10 years has been a great experience for me to daily practice several of them, and I looooooove it!

A few years ago I decided that I was definitely gay, and it suits me ;-) No worries about it, but I prefer inform the surfers in advance, in case some of you have restricted ideas... I now live with my US husband.

I love to go out, in day light to museums and exhibitions, in night life to parties and clubs.
I love good food at home with friends or in restaurants, - especially with my husband who loves to eat too!

I've hosted quite a lot of people in my life, even before being a couch surfer, even before CS existed!!))
So guys, if I'm free when you are in Perpignan, it will be a pleasure to host you or to spend time together...


Humanism and happiness...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By offering my time and my place to any people who would be demanding or being interested in coming to Perpignan and North Catalonia.


I have hosted several times now, and have surfed a couch once, which was great!
