ABOUT ME

I love to travel: to discover new cultures, new landscapes, new persons. I permanently need to break the routine, and couchsurfing (both hosting and surfing) is a great way to achieve it!

PHILOSOPHY

"Un voyage se passe de motifs. Il ne tarde pas à prouver qu'il se suffit à lui même. On croit qu'on va faire un voyage, mais bientôt c'est le voyage qui vous fait, ou vous défait."
(Nicolas Bouvier)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Arriving in Istanbul's Golden Horn at sunset, surrounded by giant mosques and during the call to prayer.

Being taken by surprise by a big storm during a hiking to Musala's peak in Bulgaria, and forced to stay in a mountain retreat.

Exploring Gruta do Lapão in Chapada Diamantina (Brasil), and getting lost in the tropical forest on the way back.
