About Me

- I am a little bit shy at first but very sociable, talkative, curious, open-minded, friendly, etc.
Je suis un peu gênée au début, mais très sociable, curieuse, ouverte d'esprit, amicale, etc.

- I LOVE travelling & taking pictures.
J'ADORE voyager et prendre des photos.

- I like meeting and hosting new people, eating & cooking vegetarian/vegan food, trying new things (activities), watching movies, learning about different cultures, languages and the world's great diversity, planning our next trip or vacation, listening to music, laughing, etc.
J'aime rencontrer et accueillir de nouvelles personnes, manger et cuisiner de la bouffe végétarienne/végan, essayer de nouvelles choses (activités), regarder des films, apprendre différentes cultures, langues planifier mon prochain voyage/vacances, écouter de la musique, rire et j'ai une ouverture sur le monde.

- I work to raise money and travel around the world!
Je travaille pour amasser des fonds et voyager autour du monde!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

- Spending an evening in a hotel room is soooooo boring! It's much better to meet local people and stay with them! I want to meet cool people and share experiences.
Passer une soirée dans une chambre d'hôtel est hyper ennuyeux! Il est beaucoup mieux de rencontrer la population locale et de rester avec eux! Je désire rencontrer des gens intéressants et partager des expériences.
