About Me

CURRENT MISSION

let's share couches, thoughts, ideas, laughs and we'll make a better world!

ABOUT ME

Turning 30, I decided to live my oldest dream: touring the world...

Since I was 15, I've been willing to live on a backpack and meet new friends from all over the world.
I am taking at least 13 months off to make my dream come true.
I am an independant girl, always trying to look at the brightest side of a situation, no matter how bad it is.
Always trying to make the most of it, seeing the cup half-full rather than half-empty.
As a rotary exchange student in 1994-95, I found out about how important it is to share cultures, traditions with other foreign students.

I am looking forward to doing it again in the months to come when I'll be meeting people from all the countries I will be visiting. Couchsurfing definitely looks like something to do when you're an open-minded person looking for many other open-minded persons.

PHILOSOPHY

"Life's a journey, so everyone is a tourist" (F. Nietzche)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

When my journey ends (will it ever end anyway?), me & my couch will make sure to host as many travellers as possible...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have had many people, friends, friends'friends staying at my place, even before I registered on CS.com.

Many times, my couchsurfers and I spent hours and hours talking, sharing, laughing...

Interests

Travelling & sharing ideas, thoughts & experiences with new people
Muay Thai: Found out about it in Thailand...fell in love with it, and started training right away...Awesome martial art, respect, self-confidence...
Music, as it is my job (I a ma radio DJ and journalist for a national radio network). I don't play any instrument, but I can't live without my iPod. Rock music, as well as classical, rap or r'n'b...
Photography! Was almost born and raised with a camera in my hand as my step dad was a photographer.
Reading...all the time, and everything...almost!

Music, Movies & Books

Among my favorite movies: "Lost in Translation", "In the mood for love" ...
Music? hmm, Led Zeppelin, Ben Harper, Vivaldi, Samuel Barber, Muse...
Books: David Lodge, Nick Hornby, Bret Easton Ellis, Harry Potter (forever!)...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I don't know if it is amazing, but my first muay thai fight was awesome. It was the finish line of a long and painful journey. It was my choice to fight, to train, to suffer and to improve my mental and physical skills; I reached my goal, I made it, and never felt so proud in my life...
