About Me

After having lived my first expat experience in Australia for a 6-months internship I caught the famous traveling virus.

Now that I have turned the page of 3 great years spent in Argentina I decided to live in Colombia for an indefinite period. I was already fond of Spanish for quite a while and now I can say that I literally felt in love with Latin America!

So like I mentioned I am now living in Cali, Colombia, working as a translator for the moment and eager to meet new friends, to learn properly to dance salsa, merengue (and so on...), to taste every possible fruit and to visit more of the beauties this country has to offer! Such a program ;)

See you!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I got a really great CS experience in Port Hedland, Australia, during a trip from Perth to Broome when we were lost with no roof until CS helped us! Then I had multiple CS experiences in France and Argentina where I met great friends!

I am involved in many CS activities, mostly meetings over a drink(s) and sport events.


Sports, partying, laughing at least an hour per day, climbing up trees, bike by night in Paris

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It was 2 years ago during the World Cup of soccer. I ignored at least 3 stoplights with my bike in front of a police car.
They followed and stopped me. As I was wearing the Brazil shirt I took something like a strong accent from South America with a very bad French... and it worked :)
I said them that in Brazil roads are in very bad conditions with very few stoplights in working order, so you just have to be careful. They were very surprised and let me go just saying that I have to respect the French traffic law :D

If you want a live representation no worries!
