About Me


I don't really like to think about adjectives that would fit me the most. Those ones are quite changing in fact. From what all my friends and aquaintances usually say, they say i'm talkative and curious.
More generally, I'm a French student in architecture and engineering in Paris. I've always lived in Paris and I try everyday to learn more about this old city, and maybe know it one day as the back of my hand! I've also lived several summers in the West coast of North America (California, Washington state, and B.C) . I've just come back from my erasmus in Vienna.


"Vivre prend du temps" which means "Living takes time" (especially true when you know me).
"La vie est comme une auberge espagnole, on y trouve que ce qu'on y apporte." which means " Life is like a Spanish hostel, you could only find what you brought there"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I've started recently CS in Ireland this February, where I was very well welcomed by my hosts. Since then, I host people in Paris when I'm not too busy, and most of the time, make them visit the city and its surroundings. I also went through Poland and Germany, where i met nice couchsurfers.


I really enjoy visiting cities as I'm an architecture student. See how a city works and its people, quarters...
I also like to eat and cook, a lot actually! I cook French and Asian dishes (as my mother is Cambodian). But I also like discovering other foreign dishes.
What else ? I'm a music addict, and i am pretty open-minded about different types of music (rock, jazz, blues, classical, folk, world music,bossa nova, reggae...almost everything).
And beside drawing !

One Amazing Thing I've Done

-Being lost in the middle of the Icelandic mountains and trying to do hitch-hiking the day i had to take my flight back to France...and know what, i've succeed to have a lift in time!
-I've worked as a manager of a building site of a huge tower (a tower of 23 levels and 100m of heigh!) during 3 months . And some nights after the work i was used to go on the last level and look at the city of Paris and its surroundings.Splendid view...Now the construction is over and the building is working but I'm not allowed anymore to go to the last level.
-Things that are about to come, let see...
