About Me


tasting all the chocolate cakes in the world - and enjoying the present moment


I'm used to call myself the little crazy frog; due to my origins and because of all the jumps I'm making trough life ! It is a never ending story.


You can not translate a feeling so I left it in VO...

"Mais ne t'inquiete pas, j'ai glisse tout au fond de mon sac: ma bonne etoile qui te fera guise de protection". (Emmanuelle, my twin sister on my first travel adventure)
"Je veut des gens passionees!" Erik Orsenna.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meeting people.
Hosting people.
Sharing experiences.
Making new friends.


If we consider that lovely woman who told me once (in a train station after she'd offered me a sweater) to come at her whenever I wanted/ needed to.
One day, in this train station, in wintertime : I waited two hours outdoors for a friend, in T-shirt.
Months afters I got blocked in Paris, without knowing where to sleep (I was 16.) I sent her a text. She met me at the nearest tube station, gave me her keys and borrowed me her flat.
We are know good friends.

Since I have couchsurfed all around...
