About Me

CURRENT MISSION

" Traveling is essential to me. The contact of the alive things replaces almost for me the fact of reading books. " Maïakovski in his American narrative.

ABOUT ME

I love traveling. My aim is to live of traveling. Being a radio correspondent. As radio journalist, I'm all the time taking my microphone with me to catch sounds of life, landscapes and people stories/experiences/thinking every where I'm going. And I can assure you Nights and days are really good speakers. Also landscapes and silences can tell us a lot. I'm a kind of sounds hunter. Then I'm back to my place with my trophy creating sounds novel. In every sound, in every music, you can found a story, you can found novel.
I love people strories, I love to record them and put their experiences on radio documentaries... It's a way to learn so many things about life.

I've my own blog : http://apoilslesoreilles.tumblr.com/
I'm still beginning but I'm a really motivated ! =D

Sooo on I also love to meet people, to learn about them and their life :D It's like Maïakovski, this amazing Russian poet, is saying, : "travelling is indispensable to me. Contact with alive things replace books.

PHILOSOPHY

I'm a Christian girl. Hahah yes it still does exist. But I'm really open minded and I'm absolutely against proselytism. I'm for charing.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I'm still living at my parents place two basic reasons. First Paris is a so expensive place. And 2/3 month a year I'm out to travel. And it's why I cannot receive people at home. Unfortunately are really not open. But I really like my city (I'm living out of Paris, but are spending my life there almost all the time (my work, my study etc.) so it should be a pleasure to help you to discover it.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I'm a complete neophyte. before knowing CouchSurfing, I was knocking at doors. And even if it was no working each time I've tried, It offered me exceptional opportunities. I met a lot of amazing and lovely people. A lot of passing experiences, but so deep.

Interests

I have a passion for sounds, music and people.

Music, Movies & Books

I'm a young trombone player ! And I'm found of this instrument ! :D
I love Kusturica movies. I love the crazyness of reality showned in and how he invites to to really think deeper about what he is showing in those movies.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

My best adventure was certainly in Zanzibar when alone in the forest of Jozani I met 2 engineers in tropical plants and they came back with me to Zanzibar Town in a local bus with 20 people, some where fruits seller and they offer me to try all the fruit they has with them in a funny spectacle looking if I was enjoying or not :D it was funny and really great
