About Me

CURRENT MISSION

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

ABOUT ME

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.

PHILOSOPHY

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

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

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

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

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...
