About Me

After a few years abroad, I am enjoying being back in Paris, were I have loads of friends and social activities. We love to hang out in small local bars, organizing activities on weekends, going to exhibts and dance shows/theater plays... And in summer the best thing to do are picnics anywhere in the city : on the river banks, in parks during cinema and jazz festivals...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am on Couchsurfing, because I had been lucky enough to be very warmly welcomed during many trips I did when I was living abroad. It's a way a good way to extend social network into real life.

Music, Movies, and Books

My fav book is definitely a Fine balance from Rohinton Mistry. I love how he portrays a raw side of social issues in India. Very passionnating...

For music, the first thing that crosses my mind is a great live from Fat Freddy's Drop. But I won't mind listing to Alice in chains in the morning or Pink Floyd anytime.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Swimming with whale sharks or amazing surfing in the Philippines, traveling on motorbike across Europe with my boyfriend...

I have been so lucky to travel / work in random places for years thanks to my NGO assignments . I remember very well health survey carried out in remote tribes in Bangladesh or flying over congolese scenic jungle and rivers in a small plane, as well as rhum sour enjoyed on a paradisiac island in Haïti.

But the last amazing thing I've done was to enjoy a well perfumed chicken Thai soup last week with friends at home !
