About Me


Living the dream or dreaming a life, that is the question.


I'm better at talking than at writing, but because this is a written platform, I'll have to give it a try.
I'm almost 30 31, 32 years old constantly changing, but I feel younger, probably because I'm slow and time seems to flow slower. I don't see myself as a traveller, although I've seen some places and every life is a journey. I'm never going to places, knowing what I 'should' see, I trust on a map, my feet and other people.
What I do in life is more difficult, I know where I come from and I know where I was going. I studied a lot in the past, some photography and I have a degree in forest and nature conservation. I worked as a teacher and now I'm moving to Canada.
Sometimes I'm more busy in my head than in real life and that's what I like about travelling, I have to do a lot and can still think about it a lot.


Don't have regrets, enjoy what you've had.

Demain, peut-être je suis mort (pas cynique, mais autres mots pour dire Carpe Diem)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sometimes by hosting, sometimes by surfing.


I'm a newbie, but after 3 months on CS I only want to get more experiences.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like movies a lot, because they can move me, provoke thoughts or sometimes the opposite, to shut down my brain. (two of my favorites: Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, la fille sur le pont(with the perfect of music Marianne Faithfull)
I also like music a lot, but it is mostly about the sound, not about the lyrics, I mean not the complete lyrics. (one of my favorites: Múm - the ballad of the broken birdie records)
And I also like books a lot. Especially the classics in literature and popular science books.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

to feel the warmth of the sun
to be caressed by strong wind
to smell and taste of a good curry
a smile ...

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach al little bit about science, GIS, statistics, photography, pruning, climbing and a little about monocycling. I'm not an expert in these subjects and therefore also want to learn more about these things.
I should learn how to organize, so I can learn cooking.
And I want to learn hang gliding or paragliding. And massage, meditation, climb a coconut tree, etc.
