preparing the next expedition
In a few words, I am a french girl of 26 candles, currently carrying out a PhD in Biology (Tropical Botany) at the University of Barcelona.
Absolutly love to travel as I enjoy the natural, cultural and human sides of it. I'm also a lot into sports, mostly outdoors (hiking, skiing, climbing) but not only (I'm a fan of dancing). I like to meet new, original and interesting people that are eager to share their experience and points of view. Finally, I'm trying to create more opportunities to discover the world.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I've mostly hosted so far and all experiences were amazing. I have also surfed a few times and found it very rewarding, like living a totally different and disconnected life for a few days.
Before I used to study and travel. Now, I work (on my thesis) and travel as part of it. That definitely gets you into some crazy situations. Wish I had more time to live besides all this but it's not going to happen any time soom so better to learn how to make the best of it. I really enjoy "escaping", going away for a few days, living absolute madness with CSers, or get back to nature.
- outdoor activities
- rock climbing
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: from country to classical, including rock, metal or latin music among others.
Movies: not really difficult either, just depends on the mood.
Books: I'm crazy about french theater (Molière), novels (Maupassant) or poetry (Apollinaire). Nonetheless I also love foreign authors(foreign to me) like Shakespeare, Mitchell or Garcia Marquez.
