About Me


Freedom for every aspect of my life


Let's say I'm a dropout, thus I have a strong personality, my own life's rythm.
Will you be able to bear my laugh, my fragile health, my religion (Christian), the fact I'm left handed ?
I'm a non smoker woman ; I drink so little.
I am : kind, open minded, independant (but also very conscious about interdependance), hypersensitive, smiling, intuitive, mysterious, curious, complex, discreet, shy, greedy. Great dreamer & sleeper, I'm a special mix of tradition and avant-garde (for instance, I never took the plane !). I always try to value the risks I take.
Consumer society is not for me.
Hitch-hiking is part of my life. Since 2006, I did five long distance travels : three in FRANCE, two abroad (BELGIUM, ITALY).


I appreciate Epicure.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


By :
- communicating about CS,
- trying to share what I can offer,
- being a link between couchsurfers,
- helping couchsurfers in need,
- answering to emergency requests,
- selecting my hosts.

He has a charming flat, beautiful coloured female cats, very nice plants, a marvellous brand new car I could try during Parisian traffic jams ! Thanks to Jean I could receive train tickets at his address. He was human enough to accept to host at the last minute an unknown hitch-hiker I had met and traveled with, who could not be hosted by his family.

My idea about tourism ? A genuine one, according to my tastes, definitely personalized.
I love hitch-hiking.
I'm interested in culture, nature, geography, food, health, sports, politics, strategy, recycling, connections (exchanges, transport, communication), psychology, religion, sociology, architecture, humour, creation, work.
