About Me


To enjoy my free time and recycle more... Discover the US everytime I'll be able to get out of the Disney bubble !


I was a full time traveller in Asia for one year, in India mainly. Then I went back to London to earn a living again and some stability as well before to hit the road again in Asia in 2013 :) I am 29 (wait I'm 33 now...) and start feeling old sometimes, especially my knees !! Currently working in Disney World and sometimes I'm not sure that was me wandering the roads of Asia and doing all these crazy things just few years back.

UPDATE : last trip was in Ethiopia in february 2016

I like chocolate, stay to bed late and smileys :) I'm gentle, spontaneous, often talkative, curious about people, places and cultures... I tend to be open minded in my daily life but it's so easy to get back to the old habits of being individualist and uncaring !! Since I am back from India, I do try to recycle more...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I discovered the couch surfing in August 2008 and I've met some wonderful people !! It's amazing how close you can get to someone in just a couple of days and how much we're still able to share in this world.
