About Me


To spend an awesome year in Japan !


I'm a happy girl who firmly believes life should be enjoyed with the people I love and I want to learn many many languages now!

Otherwise, here are a list of things I particularly enjoy doing :

-Make new friends (Yes, I'm that cheesY :D )
-Read !
-Spend afternoons in a park trying to juggle
-Taste new Japanese foods (and all the other foods as well!)
-Be a geek
-Be a movie geek (read : I'm a sucker for gore movies)
-Be a comic books/graphic novels geek
-Try teaching French or, rather, quebecer French
-Try new restaurants, so if you come here, it's likely we'll go to a place I don't know either, but it's fun!
-Read too much, and dream about it

The rest, you'll discover when you meet me!


Life is better with colors! Or never stop dreaming! Or let me invent a time-machine plea-aaaase?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I spend all of my free time (24 hours a day, of course) reading every profile of every participant in every country. Yes, I love to read that much.


The best of all :

Spending New Years Eve in Mexico, partying with locals and enjoying the first warm end of the year in my whole life was a truly unique and so perfect experience. I'd not trade it for anything else. Except I might drink less tequila next time.. :)


Time-travelling, enjoying new culinary specialities, running wild in the streets, spending time in planes, listening too loud for my ears to good music and various others! Reading : everything from comic strips to poetry and historic books. Talking about my coming travel experiences and many other exciting things such as playing with bubble-paper, which is a very bad translation of papier à bulle, you know, the one we all can't help but playing with it for hours?

Music, Movies, and Books

Books : Everything from sci-fi to horror, poetry, and comic strips. Lots of comic strips, Persepolis, Walking Dead, Asimov, Senécal, Bilal, Michel Rabagliati, Alan Moore, Watchmen, a many many many others. Music : Tzigane/tango music that makes me instantly dancing in the wind, and almost every kind of metal from black to speed, passing through folk and death (Eluveitie, Dark Tranquillity, Unexpect, etc etc).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Went to the temple with friends in Bali. Unforgettable.
Urban exploration in Vilnius.
Kimono dance in Tokyo.
And hummm, yup, snorkeling in Mexico, and Kayak here in Quebec!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach juggling and quebecer French! I love to share language knowledge and I really want to improve my Japanese (especially Kanji, those hard bastards).

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'd rather say what I hope to experience with other couchsurfers : new experiences, fun, meaningful conversations or just smiles :)
