About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Trying to enjoy every minute of the time that has been given to me :)

ABOUT ME

I finished my studies last year and now I'm a "free electron", traveling and working around. Last time I was working in Norway for 5 months on a research project about the boreal lynx, and I'm based in Saint-Brieuc (Brittany) for some months working on birds monitoring. So basically I like nature, wildlife, hiking, photography...but also to hang out with friends, drink some good beers in a pub or good wine, enjoy food (oh yes, I love food -probably because I'm french!-), go to art exhibitions, watch some weird movies, listen to some good music...
For me life have been (and is still) a succession of surprises and meetings with different people. I've always enjoyed discovering new places, cultures and people.

PHILOSOPHY

"The bad news is that time is flying, the good news is that you're the pilot"
" The mind is a parachute, it works best when it's open"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

In general I had a lot of positives CS experiences, and I met some amazing people.
Only one was a quite bad experience, because of a girl I hosted stole my computer in my house. But that's behind me now. I prefer to look forward and be positive, keeping hope in that system and human nature :)
