About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I am discovering Canada for the second time with two wonderful French friends whom I travelled with in Australia. After that, I am going to live and teach in China!

ABOUT ME

I am a licensed massage therapist as well as a studio photographer. I'm not rich, but I love what I do, and that matters to me more than making the big bucks. I hate putting all my eggs in one basket and love trying new experiences therefore I am always on the lookout for an opportunity. Travelling and working/volunteering abroad is a new way of life that I have adopted.

I believe in art therapy and the importance that art has in our lives. Art comes in many forms, such as creativity and design, but there is one art that some struggle to master: the art of loving oneself!

I hold a bachelor's degree in Communication Studies but never worked in my field because I realized that I am allergic to corporate life and prefer to help people so I became a massage therapist in 2012. In 2015, my spouse and I sold everything and went from a 4-bedroom apartment to living in a van. It was the best move of my life.

PHILOSOPHY

Go with the flow is a personal motto. And so far, the flow has brought me to some beautiful places and put some wonderful people and experiences on my path. It has also challenged my inner self in difficult situations and decision-making. Whatever the situation, it's always about self-discovery. Whatever decision we make will always be the right decision.

Travelling is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I started CS in Peru, then in India, and then when I moved into my own place in 2012 I could not wait to be a hostess. I continued surfing in the US and myself have hosted a few people who have captivated me with their travel stories.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Oh how CS opens doors to great friendships and new travels! I continue being flabergasted every time a new acquaintance touches my soul in their own way.

Interests

The colour ORANGE!!! Everything in my life is orange.
Travelling, road trips (short or long), wilderness camping, massage therapy, wellness and alternative medecine, Shishah, photography, foreign films, music, wine, ethnic foods, meeting new individuals. I am a big believer of karma and energy and I enjoy meeting people who send out good vibes.

Because when you stop and look around, life is pretty amazing...
