About Me


To welcome foreigners in our wonderful home


I'm spunky, energetic, colourful and LOVE polkadots. I like to do many things at once, from running my own business to raising my son alone. We are original free spirits and like to find our own way of doing things. We realize our dreams!

Brel is an amazing person. Bright, quick (although not always so quick on his feet), curious and interesting, sensitive, emotional, multilingual and probably one of the most social people you'll ever meet!


It's a dream?... then DO IT!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I must introduce someone to the couchsurfing project every day! I get really excited about things I'm involved in and need to share it with everyone I meet. We just crossed South America (from Ecuador to Chile) and are getting ready to surf Europe for 7 months. The goal is to hop from 1 couch to the next and meet couchsurfing families along the way. We'll let you know what happens!


My son, exhibitions, art and artists make me grow (especially anything related to painting, drawing, silkscreening and prints), people who share what they feel, touch me and teach me things, la SIMPLICITÉ VOLONTAIRE, original/new solutions for daily living, languages, meeting strangers through conversations over a coffee, dancing and letting out steam, letting music get through me ...

Music, Movies, and Books

Music is the third person in our life. We NEED it!!!!- all kinds, happy, sad ...We LOVE festivals, live music! Brel is almost always reading (comics and mangas are still his favourite!). MOVIES are a treat, in bed or at the cinema.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I am sometimes amazed by the small things I've done. Daily survival, raising a beautiful person, continuing my own business in my own terms, values and priorities. Creating something with my own hands that allows me to live the life I want to live. AND of course, crossing South America with my son (10 yrs old) during 5 months. It really was the trip of a lifetime!
