About Me

Hey there! I'm a journalism student who loves to travel and discover new people and places. I'm fond of painting, music, writing, reading and cinema. I write often stories and poems about the places I visit and the people I meet. I'm a free spirit who's eager to get in contact with new cultures and share awesome adventures. I like going out in the evening, hiking in the nature, visiting museums and places or even drinking some beer or shots. I'm flexible and open-minded and I respect each culture.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm on couchsurfing because I love to meet people from all walks of life, sharing with them awesome moments and learning lots of new things! Travelling is also one of my addictions, so I think Couchsurfing is the perfect place where I can find people that share my same passion :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

First adventure : I went to explore a Michigan forest with a friend one night. We didn't have any light. It was scary at the beginning. But then it was magic and wonderful. I could see the whole starry sky above my head. It was awesome!

Second Adventure : I hired a moto-taxi driver and travelled with him through the savannah in the northern part of Benin. The road was full of ponds and holes. We met a lot of people during the trip such as "Peul" sheppherds, villagers, travellers, children and many other folks ! Then we entered in a forest and climbed a mountain. We finally reached a huge waterfal and we swam in its small lake. It was amazing !

Teach, Learn, Share

Let's teach and learn all together :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm a good cook and I can make and teach you some Italian dishes (pasta, meat, salads, rice, cakes ...). I know well three languages - Italian, French and English - and I can teach you some cool words. I love life and I'm eager to meet new people and discover new places. I'm even a good talker and listener, since I like to listen to other people and I'm curious to know their stories! Most of all : I'm always positive and I try to cheer up everybody !
