About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Study Greek, bungee jump and meet CSers in Europe

ABOUT ME

I consider myself a smiling and outgoing girl with a passion for travel and languages. I have been privileged enough to have parents who introduced me to the joys of travelling from a very young age, and ever since, my dream has been to set foot on every country in the world and to meet as many people as I can.
The rest, you will discover as we get to know each other, hopefully!

PHILOSOPHY

Find what makes you happy and do it. Do it all the time.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I try to meet as many people from CS as I can, whether at home or on travel. I can't host anyone right now, but I really hope to use CS to meet awesome people while travelling. I am hoping to be able to host anytime time soon!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I am just starting to get to know this amazing community, but every time I have met Couch Surfers, it was a great pleasure. To meet people with similar minds, but each with different passions and tales is a most wonderful experience!

Interests

My range of interest goes wide and far, from music, travel, foreign politics, culture, languages, world views, pretty much anything! I love going out for a beer, strolling in a foreign city, meeting strangers, coffee with friends, parties, dancing (very poorly). I believe everything is great fun when you're in good company and any conversational topic, when discussed with passionate people becomes instantly interesting.

Music, Movies & Books

So many. Too many.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

World Youth Days in Sydney (2008). More amazing experiences and encounters than I could even begin to tell. It was a simply an impressive multicultural, enthusiast, young, vibrant a passionate crowd, with which I had the great pleasure to spend a few weeks.

Every trip I have been on has had its fair amount of amazingness. To just name a few: camping in the Sahara Desert. Seeing the moonrise and sunrise over the dunes. Sleeping in a rusty van for a week in the Australian Outback. Instant friends at Stonehenge. La Tomatina with a backpacking Brit. Surfing through a Spanish storm. Kayaking in the mediterranean.

The list could go on and on. Every new experience has something to it, and I wish to have many more points to add over the next few years.

Teach, Learn, Share

What I can teach and share?
French, English, Italian, basic German, Spanish and Mandarin.
Anything about languages and learning them
My passion for music
All about Québec culture and our language
Probably a lot more!
I can cook awesome Québec recipes and make a poutine out of anything ;)
Maple syrup. Yeah.

My short and long term future goals are to become an English teacher (as foreign language) and flight attendant or maybe tour guide abroad, working with group travels. Sharing what I know about things I love is something that makes me happy and it would be a dream come true to spend a lifetime doing it.
