About Me

I'm a French vegetarian girl who loves to meet new people, to know new places.
I currently live in Buenos Aires with my Argentinean boyfriend and another friend, I work as a freelance translator and enjoy every little thing this life gives to me!
I really give a big importance to respect, tolerance and a positive attitude in every step I give.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosting and being hosted is so great!! I've known wonderful people through CS, the most open-minded people I've ever met.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

You meet people from everywhere, different in so many ways, but all of them have something special, because they all share the CS mentality. It's good to feel that people "give" and "receive" with the only purpose of sharing.

Music, Movies, and Books

Any film, book or music which transmits something, especially strong emotions.
I think I'm not fussy with films as long as it's not a stupid plot which doesn't bring you anything.
Among my favourites, you can find Hair, El hombre de al lado, Pulp Fiction, Años de calle, Siete cajas, any Almodovar movie, etc...
And a lot of latin movies, which is one my favorite cinema.
I loved '11minuts', Paolo Coelho. I quite like some Carlos Fuentes books. '1Q84', by Murakami. 'Rayuela', by Cortazar, etc. I'm currently reading a Marios Vargas Lopez's book, to be continued...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It's hard to share something that left you astonished, because we all received things differently: small things left me quite a strong impression, like encounters with people or places but it's just indescribable!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm eager for learning how to draw, to sing, to play all the instruments of the world, to take nice pictures, to dance flamenco, tango, salsa.. It's never ending! I'm also currently learning Argentinean Sign Language and doing yoga.
Unfortunately my skills are quite common (and reduced) but I'm sure we could find something to exchange. I love to cook vegetarian food but I'm not always good at it.
