About Me

I am a french Phd student in Political science of La Sorbonne and live between Paris and Bogota, as my field research is in Colombia.
Next I will be in Berkeley (fall semester 15) for an exchange research program and I hope find a way to stay there!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I hope I can host someone in Bogota if needed and find where to sleep when I am travelling. I like the family atmosphere but dislike some guest house where you pay for a room as you were in an hotel except you are not free as in a hotel. And I dislike the cold atmosfere or too warm (and touristic) atmosfere of hotel! So I am in Couch Surging to find the real person who open their house just to share, help and know about other people as I do it too as I was educated!


I love dance, travel, cook and share with others!
