About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Gotta keep movin'

ABOUT ME

Very open-minded (I know everyone says this...but it's true!!), bubbly, and outgoing. Love meeting new people, speaking different languages and getting into those deep but strange discussions that make you more confused about everything.

Can speak French, Spanish and English fluently, and could probably get by with Italian and Portuguese too.

PHILOSOPHY

My life in 6 words - Always waiting for the next step.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Well located in an interesting, up and coming city in North East France, I would be very happy to show you around the town and if you need a place to stay for a night or two, you'd be welcome!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I'm new to CS, have signed up after talking to friends here in Metz who are members. Will update this accordingly if and when necessary

Interests

Sports - playing football, badminton, tennis, and golf. Love Formula 1, but unfortunately don't think I'm very likely to be allowed to play that.
Otherwise, I love travelling and have travelled through a lot of Europe.
Very interested in discovering new cultures...not so much through visiting the essential tourist sights, but more by getting to know the people and watching how the country works.

Music, Movies, and Books

Very eclectic music taste..but quite mainstream. I am not a film buff. I don't know too many. I'm a big reader. Particularly enjoyed Millennium books and currently reading Lord of the Rings
