About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Carry out a doctorate project at the interface of immunity and chemistry, while learning italian.

ABOUT ME

I recently graduated from pharmacy school in France this year and immediatly hit the road around the world before moving to Milan, Italy, at the end of the year.

I self-diagnosed a strange disease I caught about 10 years ago when I stoped being a child, and it's called The travel-dependancy which main symptom consists of very hitching feet.

Despite my laid-back appearance, deeper inside I am more like an anxious person who fears routine and boredness.
Impatient to discover, impatient to search for new things, impatient to learn more, these are the qualities/defaults that drove me to a scientific research career.

For the social part, the way I see life is to live throughout people. I believe any single person that crosses your path, will definitely bring something in your life. May it be a talk, a comment, or a single sign, either you realize it or not.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I like the idea of leaving and meet someone (local or traveler) keen on sharing your way, your time etc...
Until now I have made good friends by meeting CSers on the road, and so far I have experienced all the people I met always had loooooong discussion to talk about, relating to our common interest : traveling ! I love to hear people telling me stories of what they have lived somewhere, where they come from, how it goes on their own culture etc ...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

~ Spent 6 weeks in a canoe in Alaska floating along the Tanana river, from Fairbanks to Manley Hotsprings. 3 entire weeks out of qny human civilization, only me my friends and the infinite wild life around. Then hiked in the wilderness center of Denali, and clicked the picture of famous Magic Bus ; with a CSer I had met in New Zealand the year before.

~ 7 hours hiking in the frozen cold of winter to reach natural hot springs at night and enjoy a very hot bath under the milky way before sleeping in a hut, in the South Island of New-Zealand with CouchSurfers I met on this website.

~ AURORA AUSTRALIS (southern lights) and AURORA BOREALIS (northern lights) was one of the dreams of my life and I made it real in not only once but twice, on the two opposite poles of the globe (in New Zealand and in Alaska). I feel so grateful for such a rare and speechless show.

~ Horse riding in Mongolia accross the steppes, each night in a different nomad family living of nothing else than their animals and the milk of their animals.
