About Me

CURRENT MISSION

PLS NOTE THAT IF YOU WISH TO STAY PLS READ MY PROFILE & SEND A REQUEST, NOT A PRIVATE MESSAGE. AND PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THIS IS NOT A FREE HOTEL BUT A WAY TO MEET EACH OTHER & EXCHANGE. Thanks.

Studying Mandarin & Tourism. Traveling as much life allows me to.

ABOUT ME

I'm back to Rouen, Normandy after spending years in London, New-York & more recently Buenos Aires, where I met my wonderful husband.

I was born in France from french parents with roots from Spain, Italy and the Netherlands. It sure helped me getting the travel bug & getting curious about different cultures & languages.

My love for american history got me to learn english & spanish which I speak dayly with my husband, friends & at work.

We speak 3 languages at home which can be a little confusing to people sometimes.

My dream is to go on a world tour with my husband and to cross the ocean on a cargo boat. Whenever I get to travel to a new country/region I mostly want to discover the food, the customs and what life is like in this place. I would like to longer the days so I could have more time to read. My regret in life is to not have studied politics & sociology but who knows, one day mayber :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Can host on sundays and mondays, can also hang out pretty much any time after 5pm.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I couchsurfed quite much during the past years, mostly while traveling across the USA and Europe and I also participated in many CS events in Buenos Aires & Rouen, my hometomwn.

Interests

I'm interested in geopolitics, and in colonial history but my favorite past time is traveling.

I enjoy a good meal and unfortunately for my health I have a sweet tooth. Vegetarian for life ! My favorite food is/are : Italian, French, Greek & Indian, I put spices on everything. I enjoy a good cocktail.
I appreciate sharing points of view on what's happening in the world today.

Music, Movies, and Books

I used to play the saxophone, so I basically love Soul & Jazz music, though I am a big Michael Jackson fan and I also really love Queen. I recently discovered electrotango music and really got a taste for it, especially for the band Bajofondo.

I'm not a novel fan, I mostly enjoy reading history books.

Argentinian actor Ricardo Darin is one of my favourite. I very much like the following movies starring him : El secreto de sus ojos, Septimo, El hijo de la novia, Nueve Reinas.
I'm also a big fan of French actor/director Julie Delpy : Before Sunset, Before Sunrise, Before Midnight, 2 days in Paris, 2 days in NY

Other movies I like : For colored girls, Tiempos de valientes, Hunger Games, Some Like It Hot, The Wizard of Oz, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Sex & the City 1 & 2, Hable con Ella, La mala educacion, central do brasil, Coming to America, O'Brother, Cinema Paradiso, Casse tête Chinois.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Moving to South America, seeing the Grand Canyon, crossing the Andes and hiking at 5,200 meters high on a remote and not yet very touristic, rainbow mountain in Peru.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've learned a lot from people all my life, and luckily for me I've been surrounded by people from different regions of the world, all with their own opinions and lifestyles. As the day of today, I really enjoy meeting people who are willing to share their opinions and knowledge about the world's issues (politic, economy, religion, conflicts..), I enjoy it more than talking about the latest blockbuster !
