About Me




I'm an idealistic, passionate and spontaneous person. I love starting new projects. I'm usually on my own, but I am so happy to share with others. I am one of those you can't focalise in one thing. I enjoy sharing with people what we learned on the life road, especially stories, passions, art. If ou are passionate, there is a chance we'll have long discussions and ideas together!
I grew up in a small village, then I'm still a nature lover.Just listening the wind in the trees make me happy.
I try my best to open my eyes to see the gifts that life left on the road, even if sometimes it doesn't look like gifts..


Each person is an artist, and our masterpiece is our life!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I am warmely received all the time by great persons when I am travelling! I'm sorry that I can't receive you, I travel too much to have my own house. But soon, I'll find a place to be, and receive you. Waiting that day, I offer my time for travellers who are on visit to Montreal.


I always had great times with surfers, I love it! That's a beautiful way to travel. Thanks all of you!
