About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoying some time in France, discovering Europe little by little.

ABOUT ME

I am French but have spent 8 years in England and 2 years in Australia. I have been back in France just over 6 months.

I enjoy being sociable and am quite active. I like finding people with the same sense of humour.

When I travel, I like chatting to locals and discover their way of life, unlike tourists. Although, I do look like a tourist!

I have a car that I love taking around too !
PHILOSOPHY

Make yourself happy because at the end of the day, you are the only person who is going to spend all your life with you. "The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes" Marcel Proust

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

- I go to CS meetings to meet awesome people around the world
- I have couchsurfed in New Zealand and heard many great stories.
- I have organised CS meetings such as Laser Tag in Melbourne (which is still going on, I'm really proud of this) and New Year's Eve in Melbourne and Sydney.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have received the best sign of gratitude on NYE when a Cser came to my NYE event and told me that thanks to me, connections have been made and that I have touched life of others even if it's in a small way. This has touched me deeply!

Interests

Monopoly deal (card game!), Table Tennis, Laser tag!!!!!!

Languages, travelling, walking, sports, anything with a challenge and new to me, etc etc. (I'm interested by a lot!)

Zumba - step - aerobics.

Music, Movies & Books

He's just not that into you, Moulin Rouge, Romeo and Juliet, Fingersmith, Love actually, Loving Annabelle, Imagine Me and You...
P!nk - saw her twice in concert, love her! Pop music for me please, does anyone know a good place to dance?
My 2015 New Year Resolution was to read more - I have therefore joined Audible - audio books. Have listened to "Le vieux qui ne voulait pas feter son anniversaire", great books, and i like Marc Levy. Pride and Prejudice, A Year In The Merde, The Consolations of Philosophy.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Swimming with Whale Sharks in Western Australia, being given a piggyback ride down gorges in Karijini National Park, Sunrise at Uluru, Skydiving in Byron Bay! Gliding in France! Parasailing in NZ, laid on the glass floor in the CN tower of Toronto and had to be pulled up, I was that scared! The boat ride in Niagara Falls. Went to the London Olympic Games last year and loved the events! Went from England to France in a 4 place plane. Crazy drove a campervan in Tasmania (not that crazy!) and climbed at Cradle Mountain :) Rock climbed Gillen Mount in Alice Springs (we didnt find the path), cried but succeeded !
