About Me


write and become and change job


I am a french girl of 30. I want to travel around the world, enjoy life, meet interesting people. I live in Belfort and love music, books, good food, concerts... And a lot of other things it would be too long to list!


the more important thing in life is time: we have a small bunch of it and must use it to do what we love, want and desire most.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted some people when i lived in Reims. I couchsurfed in Belgium, Germany, and France. I hope to travel again with couchsurfing during the holidays. I did some CS meeting in Bordeaux and met a lot of funny, strange, nice people from the whole world... Incredible!


I hosted a man who walked from Gand to Saint jacques de Compostelle. I really envied him ! what a wonderfull trip! I hosted also two very nice american girls who made a european tour.
I was hosted by a very nice family in Bruges , and an interesting and helpful woman in Berlin, who lend me her bike for the week and made me meet a lot of interesting people!
