About Me

CURRENT MISSION

build a hut, own my boat or campervan, defend women rights, and be happy

ABOUT ME

Hi! I'm a french grad student in environmental engineering at UBC. I'm working in first nations communities on water quality which is super nice since it allows me to travel around, be in nature and meet people!

PHILOSOPHY

let's go on an adventure

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I can cook plenty of delicious food, share beer, listen to people and share ideas!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None formally with couchsurfing, but was hosted by nice people in Norway and Canada!

Interests

biking, sailing, rowing, hiking, any kind of sport related to nature basically!
Also I'm passionate about vernacular architecture : people that build their homes by themselves, like super nice cabins or campervans!

Music, Movies & Books

very very eclectic, music say: ella fitzerald, eels, staff benda bilili, salif keita, tracy chapman, c2c.

I love reading and read any book that fall in my hands. I especially love travel books such as long marche from bernard olivier, jack london's books etc.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I was working in Haïti and went to that beautiful island call île à vache (cow island) where there is no cars nor electricity and had the best dinner of my life : in front of the Caribbean sea, with fresh fish, delicious rice grown locally, coconut sauce and plantain banana, under a small shelter, with rain water pounding outside...

Teach, Learn, Share

Can teach you French, environmental engineering topics, super cool cooking recipes, basic knitting, how to distillate anything to retrieve essential oil, horse riding etc.

Algeria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Greece, Hungary, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates

Countries I've Lived In
