About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Hear and be heard

ABOUT ME

I came from Paris on June 21st landing in Washington DC.

I rented a car to travel around the country for 3 months. I traveled already to NY, Pennsylvania, and Atlantic City.

I plan to drive to VIRGINIA, TENNESSEE, ARKANSAS, (or NC, SC, FLORIDA , LOUISIANA - I don't know for sure which direction I will take to get to TEXAS), CA, LAS VEGAS and COLORADO, going back from there to NY city and WASHINGTON DC from where I'll fly back to FRANCE.

I would like to stop along the way for 2 to 3 days in the cities I mentioned above, and stay with hosts who can either show me or tell me what to visit in their respective areas.

I also hope to make new friends and learn from my hosts, share travel experiences, conversations on various interesting subjects, activities, etc.

I am a French and an English teacher, as well as an interior designer.

I love all the good things in life: music, good food, literature, theater, movies, etc.

and have a few hobbies, among them electronics: I build computers and want to know about new technologies.

Last but not the least, I love to cook some nice French recipes for my friends and give a taste of my native language to people who request it.7

I have a "cool" attitude with an open mind and a lot of respect and tolerance regarding people's privacy, belongings, and ways of life.

I hope I can get to know you.

Thank you very much for your kind reply and consideration.

My best wishes to you and your family

Josy

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I did meet a few wonderful people but I don't have much experience yet. But I am willing to learn !

Interests

Music, Movies & Books

As I already said, My first love is reading: French and English books: literature, philosophy, history, natural science, autobiographies but also thrillers, science fiction and true stories.

Movies: Mostly Old movies but also some not so old and some new ones. I don't like violence movies. Drama, good comedies, documentaries, thrillers, science fiction are what I favor most.

Music: all - ethnic, French, classical, and the 70's and 80's era: My wide collection includes: Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, and Neil Young.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I cooked my first turtle once when I was 18 years old: It was alive and when I put it in the boiling water, it turned over and fell on the floor, still alive: it was horrible. I still didn’t forget the experience and since then I never cooked a turtle or lobster again. So please don't ask me ! Lol.

The second great experience in my life was when experienced life in America !

Teach, Learn, Share

There is a song by a French Author, Jean Gabin - the principal actor in the original "les Miserables", who said at the end of his life:

"je sais, je sais, mais je ne sais rien".

This means " I thought I knew it all, but at the end, and at my old age and about to die, I came to learn that I know and knew nothing in fact.

I think this is absolutely true
