About Me

I am inspired by the people around me, nature, other cultures, travelling, music, good vegetarian food... I am very engage in everything I do in life. For me it is important to live in a conscious and respectful way, towards others and the environment. I have travelled around Europe, lived in Paris, did research in Ethiopia, worked one year in Bolivia, did WWOOFing in many different farms...
travelled by bike (also on warmshowers!).

Life is a gift. I want to enjoy it every day.

“You don't love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.”
― Oscar Wilde

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I had one of my nicest travel experience while CSing! Incredible how open and heartwarming people you just met can be! I am exited to meet new people while CS.
I believe sharing is caring and that is what makes CS so beautiful.
For me, couch surfing is the perfect way of travelling.


Nature and environment. Organic agriculture, gardening, food: vegetarian cooking, discovering new flavours and ingredients.
Biking and climing. Playing the guitar.
Of course I like traveling and discovering other cultures and people.

Music, Movies, and Books

I am a real bookworm :). “So many books, so little time.” Check my Goodread profile to see if we have the same taste in books!
