About Me

Update January 2020: Sorry I'm expecting my baby any day now so I won't be able to host anyone for a while. Take care of you guys happy new year!

July 2019: I'm back from a 6 months trip in New Zealand, hiked 1500kms, fell in love with mountains and rivers, and with NZ flat white coffees!
I'm quite busy at the moment with work and dealing with growing a baby in my belly which takes a lot of energy, but write me a message, I have a couch and still some good vibes somewhere for you!

After a break from CS during 2014-2017, I'm back!
I travelled a bit around that planet in 2011-2012-2013 (not all the time but almost), that's when I discovered that beautiful website. Went through Australia, some Asian country, India, Nepal, then crossed Europe from Ukraine to Spain. Hitchikked a lot in Australia and Europe, less in Asia, didn't try in India ah ah ah! I love hitchikking, staying on a road under the rain, the sun, for 2 minutes or 2 hours, waiting for the right car, the right person you'll meet, the right adventure... It's almost my religion, my meditation time :)) and it ends up with so many great unexpected adventures and some good friends!

Now, (2017) I have an apartement, and a couch, so I'm really glad to host fellows traveller's in my little country, not so busy with tourists!
Sometimes I'm really busy, my work takes me a lot of time so you'll have to be independant. if I'm free I would be happy to show you around, Cayenne, the countryside, share some time...
I'm really grateful to have that opportunity to give back with my little hand all that CS (and more than that all the world) gave me when I was travelling so I hope to make my home you home!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Thanks to that beautiful website, I met awesome friends, and lived great adventures.
Don't be afraid of strangers, they are your future best friends...

Interests

-Anything about History, including all old stuffs and dead people, local history, French middle age history... I studied history for 3 years in uni (then never looked for a job with that bachelor!)
-Books: I can read everything that come to my hands Fantasy, SF, historical, biography...
-Music: everything, rock (Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Led Zep) passing by reggae, raggae, zouk, folk etc...
I'm not really picky I even like sometimes christophe Maé ;)) I can enjoy all kind of music depend on the context, I really love music but I sing so badly and can't play any instrument... So in the next 10 years I'll try to do something about it!
-travelling, I love to hear travellers's stories, it's inspiring, feeding my soul, I love other people adventures ;)
-bush-walking and hikking
-hitchikking
-just enjoy the sounds of the birds, a nice sunset, a good glass of wine, good laugh with friends ....
