Join Couchsurfing to see Josephine’s full profile.
I'm Joséphine, I live in Paris.
I am a journalist, working for various national and regional TVs, and my passion is filmmaking. I'm confident I'll manage to do both!
I travel a lot, on my own mostly (before I met by boyfriend), which is also why I'm on couchsurfing, a great way to meet fellow travelers! I may have a few weird life goals, my current one is to walk to the Eiffel Tower with my donkey.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
The most important thing for me when I travel is meeting new people.
Second most important thing is discovering the local film.
Please forgive me if I try to speak in your language, my dream would be to be able to speak like 20 languages fluently... (so far I know how to say "where is the free food", that's a start).
Spending hours at night editing a movie. Although making one is so damn cool!
I play the cello (I mean, I'm getting back to it...), and what I like most is the low tone. If I could I would add one string ;)
Would live barefoot too.
I hate shopping, I love wandering in a city at night, walking in the countryside at dawn (myeah, sort of a dreamer).
- political science
- road trips
- learning languages
Music, Movies, and Books
I hate this kind of questions because I can never settle on a limited number of "favorite" music / movies / books.
As for the books, let's say higgledy-piggledy: the Count of Monte Cristo (Alexandre Dumas), Cyrano de Bergerac, Ken Follet, The Help, Aarto Paasilinna, Harry Potter, Jane Austen and so many others.
Music: Film soundtracks (Hans Zimmer!), Muse, U2, The Beatles, the Arctic Monkeys, Kanye West, the Xx, Fauve, Jain, Eminem... I listen to music all the time although half of the time I don't know the name of the band or of the song.
Films: Little Miss Sunshine, the Lord of the Rings, Some Like it Hot, Band of Brothers, The Schindler's List, Le Prénom, Million Dollar Baby, l'auberge espagnole, Castle in the Sky, Game of Thrones, Stranger Things etc etc etc.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
The California Zephyr! It's a great train that goes from San Francisco to Chicago. 54 hours, 3 days, no real stop, no bed, no shower, a pack of tea bags... the dream!! Gave me an addiction to trains.
Also in Lebanon: took a friend (that is, someone i met 10 hours earlier) to a trip in the mountains and got us lost in the night...
In Romania: the memorable village of Breb and its impossible hike...
Teach, Learn, Share
I can share my toothpaste no pb ;)
I can teach some nice french recipes, although these are limited since I'm not so much into cooking (I'm at the other end of the plate :) ). Let's say though: crêpes, gougères, ratatouille, pralines (sssugar),
Can teach some French too! And the tricky sentences...
