About Me

CURRENT MISSION

discovering Chile and learning the language, po!

ABOUT ME

[Please NOTE that we can't host right now. Sophie is travelling and Patrick is writing his master thesis]
Sophie: Wow... I really hate to describe myself, I just think you would figure it out when you meet me, sooner or later.

I'm a chirpy girl, and can be very talkative as well as very quiet. I prefer wandering around in very small streets, trying to avoid the crowds and love to discover the treasures that every country has to offer.
I love to cook, make my place a real home for everybody and yes, I will keep asking you if you're feeling comfortable and if you need something (just slap me if that's too annoying :D).

I love to dance and like to go to pubs sometimes but can also just chill out watching a good movie at home or reading books while drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows.
I'm always eager to learn new things, especially when it comes to culture (and languages :)).

Patrick: spontaneous, good looking (laughs), sometimes funny and I like table tennis, breaking my legs playing basketball etc.

I'm interested in modern art as long as I can get what I see. I'm studying electrical engineering without really knowing where electricity stands in that subject.

I love watching How I Met Your Mother although I don't have much time at the moment (my studies take a huge part of my life right now unfortunately). I like the fact that one can build so many memories and adventures while travelling. I'm not that good at languages but I'm good in Maths.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is made for living, so don't waste your time and enjoy every little things.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Sophie & Patrick: Sophie hosted many people when in Prague 2 years ago but now that she leaves in Munich, not much time for anything.
Otherwise just talking, learning a lot from the others, saving backpackers from their loneliness, maybe teaching too...
We hope to be able to host again very soon, once we get more free time in our timetable.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Sophie: I've had a few experiences in surfing couches at first and it was really amazing ! I've loved to spend some time with each of them, talking, visiting, laughing... that is what made my trips the ones I will always remember !
And now, after having hosted many people last year, I fell into attending some CS events.
Patrick: I was hosted for the first time by Sophie in Prague after having met her on a train and then we were couchsurfing together in Czech Republic. I didn't know about it earlier but I like the idea.

Interests

Sophie: Cinema. Reading. Photography. Travelling. Hiking. Having fun. Cooking. Swimming. Skiing. Sewing. And talking.
Patrick: collecting CDs, iceskating, table tennis, Cinema, going on a cycling tour etc.

Music, Movies & Books

Music... rock, blues, jazz...

About books,
Margaret Atwood
The kite runner
Light on the snow
There's no place like here (Cecilia Ahern)
...
I really like classic English books also and modern American literature (Hemingway is one my favourites).
and every book finding its way under my hands...

Movies. I like everything but horror movies and sci fi. I love cinema, from action movies to romance, but I'm unfortunately not a good fan of old movies, maybe I just did not watch the great ones.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Sophie: Travelling around India by myself during my time off.
Patrick: doing a Eurotrip for 2 weeks, and too many other things.

Teach, Learn, Share

Sophie: Special skills ? mmh I speak French and quite good English... can cook a bit (crêpes...) the usual stuff. Oh and I know how to make friendship bracelets (kids never loose an occasion to remind me that...)

Patrick: I can teach you about table tennis, German, and go on very long and boring (that's what Sophie thinks) explanations about everything concerning my studies.

Countries I've Lived In
