Join Couchsurfing to see Julia’s full profile. It’s free!
I am a young half french half dutch student currently in exchange in Ottawa for one year. I like to discover new places and I believe that to really discover a place you need to know the people who live there because they are the ones who make it alive ! I am always travelling with a book and my notebook, just in case there is a nice place to sit for a few minutes. I like to go out with people but also to do something quiet ( i can spend hours in a garden ! ). Young or not, let's travel and discover each others !
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
This is just the begin on couchsurfing for me but I believe that it is a simple and very human way to travel, discover people and welcome people !
I really enjoy reading, spending hours outside ( read outside is also possible and that's maybe the best ), visiting exhibitions ( I am a fan of Impressionism ! ), making stuff myself ( my mother is an artisan ), I love "costumed" events ( that's the best way to party ! ) and I really enjoy going out for a good beer with friends or meet people there !
Music, Movies, and Books
I am very used to listen to Simon&Garfunkel, Leonard Cohen, Morcheeba, Jack Johnson, Tracy Chapman, Prince, Jordi Savall, The Corss, Adele.. and I am very open to new discoveries !
My favorite books are : Pride and Prejudice, J.Austen; Tobie Lolness, T. de Fombelle; The Hobbit, JRR Tolkien; I love Rilke's poems and Christie's short stories, and more and more..
I must admit that I know every word of Bridget Jones' diairy... But I also love movies as A love song for Bobie Long ( with Travolta ), Woody Allen's movies in general such as Match point, Il postello by Radford, Finding Nerverland, Ida, Marie Antoinette by Sophia Copola...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Just a few months ago I went to Tadoussac in Québec. The place was almost amazing but the most amazing was to see a whale and other maritime creatures in the Fjord, those pictures are printed into my memory for ever !
Teach, Learn, Share
The best way to live a good life is to share it with people. That's the reason why I am always in to help if it's possible. From others you can learn to see life and world differently, new life's philosphies !
What I Can Share with Hosts
I am affrad this year it will be difficult to greet many people but in the future ( in France mostly ) i would be very glad to share my space, dinner, conversation and make people visit my country and city. Almost I would really enjoy to show what I know about Ottawa !
