About Me


Living in Paris for a year and making the best of this experience!


At the moment I am doing my best to survive in the city jungle named Paris, I give guided bike tours in the city, am learning French, cook vegetarian food and am making new friends


The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world, and never to forget the drops of oil on your spoon - Coelho

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am up for having drinks and fun


Two students from London slept at my place for two nights and a girl from Paris stayed for a couple of nights at my home, we had a really good time in Amsterdam!


Cultural stuff, doing sports, learning french, vegetarian/vegan food, festivals
