Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Julia’s full profile.
Freshly arrived in Toulouse mid march and curious to see what this beautiful city holds in store for me. I'm planning to be here at least for the month of April, hopefully even a bit longer.
Generally happy, sun and summer loving, my favourite pastime: chatting with (old and new) friends.
I enjoy chilled days with a book but also love exploring cities and landscapes, climbing, hiking or spending nights out. Big fan of apéros en terrasse !
Also, my French badly needs some practice ;)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Unfortunately, my housing situation right now doesn't allow me to host but I hope to still get to meet some of you lovely people, maybe for a drink or two or a walk sometime.
I surfed quite a bit, hosted a bit less
