About Me

I'm a nomad who's "settled" in Chambéry with my partner Pierre. He's the one making hospitality decisions :

I am usually roaming North America or Eurasia with my thumb and/or my solar eBike.

Crazy idealist, sometimes compulsive - books, food, people and hitchhiking
I talk a lot, learned to listen, enjoy communicating extensively
I lick plates and often eat with my fingers.
I forget stuff at people's place.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
