About Me

ABOUT ME

I am a female humanoid who likes travelling, meeting people and discovering new cultures. I really like to cook, and therefore, to eat, and make my friends eat what I'm cooking (they usually don't complain that much). I like to try to make people laugh. I like theatre, music, chocolate (basic), the Earth. I like having deep conversations around a good bottle of wine (the bottle can be less good, depending on the number of bottles we already had). And funny conversations around beers. It can be the other way around. I love the ocean, I grew up next to it. And I love socks. I think I'm quite a responsible and respectful person.

PHILOSOPHY

A life time question...I think my philosophy is continually evolving thanks to time, experiences, encounters... Right now it's pretty much: enjoying and making the most of the place I'm lucky to be, people I'm lucky to know and meet, and everything that's going to happen next.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have participated to some local events in Montreal to discover new people and share good times. I am planning to continue to do so!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I only had amazing experiences, hosting and being hosted.

Interests

Obviously, I'm fond of traveling, discovering new places and what they have to offer. I especially like meeting the natives and talk with them about their way of living, of seeing the world.
I love to have fun, to hike, yoga,I care a lot about the Environment, i am also beekeeping in the city.
I also really do love dinosaurs skeletons..honestly, it's great, isn't it??

Music, Movies & Books

Harold and Maude would be one of my favourite movie, Back to the future are "must see" films to me, the Goonies inspired all my childhood, Star Wars, the Addams Family, Monty Python's, Tim Burton's, French independant movies, and some bigger productions as Inception, usual suspects, the Departed, the life of David Gale....
About music,I'm fond of the Beatles, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry and basically all the dead old rock/folk singers from the 60's and 70's. But being dead is not a sine qua non condition, I also love Cat Stevens, Neil Young, Ghinzu, Muse, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Amy Macdonald, Alt-J, and some Irish sounding music like The Cranberries, the Flogging Molly, The Dropkick Murphys. To party I also listen to electro music, and some 80's crappy funny music.
I read all kinds of books: novels, fantastic books, plays, detectives, poetry,more "sprititual" books...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

For 2 weeks I participated in an international workcamp in a small village in Turkey to renovate a youth center. It was a great experience.
