[May 2015 : I start a 4 months travel from Europe to Asia : cross Russia by train to Mongolia, go through Gobi desert by camel ? horse ?..., cross China by hitchhiking and reach New Delhi in India. Back in Paris in september ! -if I don't die on the way... :P]
Enjoy life, meet people, and share happiness !
I lived in Orleans for 6 years, to study physic and engineer sciences. I'm moving to Paris in septembre, I'll keep studying Engineer Sciences at Paris VI. I have a calm disposition, but people sometimes thinks I'm a bit crazy at first sight...
Also, I'm a little disorganised, but I will do my best I swear :)
I like to meet people from different horizons, it is amazing to share our differences ! I had the opportunity to travel a lot when I was younger, and I love to discover other cultures.
I think my best remembers are those I got from my travel to Equador, in 2009. This trip was wonderful ! It was a kind of traveling holiday camp - we visited so many places in the country ! People were genial, I've lived unfogettable moments !
Happiness, only when shared :)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I traveled only few times with CS : I spent a crazy week in Berlin, and I quickly visit Bucharest (if staying only one day can be considered as a visit...). I also meet lots of different people with the CS meetings, brunchs, events (...), and I truly enjoyed it.
Each experience is different. There are always both expected and unexpected things which happen, and only the good way. I might have been really lucky till now, but I always had good experiences.
I love the CS spirit. I am perfectly conscious that things cannot perfectly match with everyone, and I don't expect to find my new best friend in my CS host after few days, but even without having the same leitmotif, I believe that everybody is interesting in his own way and have a lot to bring to me.
So, whoever you are, whatever you like, I would really enjoy to meet you :) The only condition is you wanna share !
I assume if you are passionated by something, whatever it is, then it makes you an enthusiastic person.
I love... So many things !
Sport, music, photography, art, going to concerts, discovering new things, meeting people, sharing...
Music, Movies, and Books
I assume I couldn't live without music. I probably got this from my childhood when I learnt flute and saxophone :)
Concerning my tastes, as every little sister I was influenced by my big brother and I am sometimes one genereation late... Here are few artists of my playlist : Manu Chao, The Police, Django Reinhardt, Damien Saez, Noir Désir, Tiken Jah, Bob Marley, Adele, Caravan Palace, Selah Sue, Lilly Wood & the Prick, The Rolling Stones, Devendra Banhart, Daft Punk, and lots of unknown electroswing groups !
I don't watch that much movies -no TV at home !-; few ones which left a mark on my life are Gattaca, Her, Miral, The pursuit of Happiness, Midnight express, Requiem for a dream, and of course, The Lion King :)
And I read hundreads of books. Most are from the XIX century and triggered some controversy when published.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I think the craziest thing I've done was my bungee jumping... It was in Equador (don't tell me about safety...), in 2009 : I jumped from a bridge, with a river 300m under. Amazing !
I also did something almost as crazy : with a friend, we hitchhiked from Warszawa to Bucharest (about 1 500km !) with truck drivers. I definitely recommend it to everybody, this is a giving-smile experience, and I can tell you I'm not gonna take a plane from now one if ever I can hitchhike !
Teach, Learn, Share
I can show you Orleans/Paris and its places ;)
I have an artistic temperament, I do lots of things like paintings, sculpture, photography...
I also do lots of educational little activites for children, I could show you funny things :)
What I Can Share with Hosts
I really enjoy having endless and full of unexpected development conversations. If ever you are coming from a country with an uncommon political situation, you could mainly be sure I'll have some questions about it :)
If you are staying couple of days, then we might have enough time to make a dinner at my place with french specialities. And if you feel yourself good enough to cook, I would enjoy tasting few things from the place you're from ;)
And for non-cookers, we can still order some sushi :P
I have some good places in Paris to advise you, I will of course show you the surroundings, and I have tips to give you :)
But, I have to admit that I'm not a specialist of usual tours (I didn't even visit half of the Louvre...). Actually, I rather enjoy unconventional places, the ones which aren't that much touristics, and it could be a pleasure to bring you there !
For those who wonder what I'm talking about, here are few examples : I can take you to the catacombs for a complete night with headlamp and map, or lead you in some old closed down places where I often go to make graffiti art with my friends (...) Let's say it's about unexpected places tourists usually miss ;)
